RUD AIR is an Artist-In-Residence program in the rural area of Laxarby. It is situated ten km east of the small town of Bengtsfors, in the province of Dalsland, South-West Sweden. Away from the energetic and often hectic art world of the cities, this residency provides a tranquil and intimate space for art and reflection.
The program is self-directed. RUD AIR aims to be a retreat for the artists. It simply intends to provide breathing space away from the obligations and routines of everyday life. It offers plenty of space in a calm environment enabling you to immerse yourself in your vocation and concentrate, research, experiment or simply clear your mind. Producing artwork or a final product is a possibility but not at all a requirement. RUD AIR recognises artists individual concerns and artistic processes and understands that there are always underlying and ongoing processes even if nothing appears to be happening on the surface. The residency wants to make space for intuition and natural impulses of creativity.
