Press Release, March 2019

We’re excited to announce the open call for our 2019 residency program!

Land404 will invite a small group of artists to take part in a month long residency at our farm culminating in an exhibition on a nearby cape. We ask the participating artists to work with the nature and community surrounding the farm. Thematically investigating the relationship between modern people and nature as well as urban and rural states of being. The participants are encouraged to work freely with the themes. No discipline is preferred, but we are extra interested in experimental approaches, interdisciplinary work and social practice. This year we continue our collaboration with Dans i Blekinge, a residency for dancers and choreographers running parallel to ours.

Land404s residency is intimate, intensive and experimental. As it takes place in our home there is a strong communal aspect, which we love. It is however important that applicants are aware that they will be expected to take responsibility for the well-being of the group as well as partake in daily tasks related to the house. In other words if you want a room and no-one to bother you for a month this is probably not the program for you. We find that it is well worth it though.

When there is downtime we hang out, garden, pick mushrooms and berries in the woods, swim in the ocean or canoe with the seals living off the coast.

Application deadline is the 25th of April.

About Land404

Land404 is an artist-run residency program and curatorial platform founded by Christopher Landin and Simone Alexandra Ærsøe. The residency is based at our farmhouse on the southern coast of Sweden. From here we run a residency program and facilitate workshops, events as well as exhibitions.

Based in the countryside far from any major cities, Land404 is interested in examining rural spaces in the context of western civilisation. To create a flow of information from the periphery to the center most of the work created and shown at the farm is also exhibited in urban contexts.
