Kinono: Open Call for ‘Four (Plus One) Elements’ Residency (Greece)


ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ Tinos Art Gathering borrows the four elements (earth, water, air, fire) – plus one, the element of time – to introduce a thematic proposal that attempts to integrate the landscape itself into our perception of space, time, eras, matter, energy, nature, tradition and their various social manifestations.

For the implementation of the annual thematic cycle, Κοινωνώ addresses an open call for proposals / projects on one of the four elements – Fire, Water, Air, Earth – and for corresponding locations of the island of Tinos.

Participants can belong to any branch of the artistic – scientific – research spectrum, and the project is open to all ages and fields, as well as institutions or organisations from Greece and abroad. 

The aim of the theme is to explore the relationships between the modern interdisciplinary practice of fine arts and research, humanities and new means of expression and place and time in the ‘material’ environments of the island. These environments are varied: built and natural, indoor and outdoor, urban and rural, material and intangible, and include a complex of rural – natural monuments and sites, historic buildings and paths.

The organisers invite participants to stay on the island for a period of three weeks (26 September – 18 October 2020), to work with natural matter, to reflect on current ecological, social, cultural and local issues, to establish collaborative communities, and to create original site-specific, collective, theoretical and tangible work in a non-urban environment.

Participants are offered:

Transport costs for a limited number of participants (in and out of the EU).
Transport to the island of Tinos and all residency sites.
Accommodation (rooms and hostels).
Common lunches/dinners, food supplies.
Partial production and material costs.

Deadline: 15 August 2020
