Artisti nel Bosco Residency

Artisti nel Bosco Residency

The project “Artisti nel Bosco” is yet a young initiative, in its third year of activity, which hosts an international artists in biweekly residencies from 8th to 21nd  July 2024.  In collaboration with the Baixi Association, it particularly supports the research of artists sensitive to the relationship with the natural environment by enhancing and promoting sculpture projects and installations that draw inspiration for reflection in the landscape and natural surroundings.
The project is located  in Baixi, a place of considerable naturalistic value located within the municipal perimeter of the city of Genoa. Its secluded position, while remaining in close contact with the urbanized area of the Pegli district, has preserved a suggestive natural environment closely related to the presence of the river, the adjacent wooded area and small nuclei of rural construction.  

The Baixi association offers:
. accommodation in an independent house surrounded by greenery,
. meals, shared with the guests of the structure present at that time
. workspace, and equipment for the realization of the project
. a budget of up to 200 euros for the purchase of the necessary materials
. organizational and technical support
. accompaniment on arrival and departure
. meetings, workshops, visits
. support to facilitate exchange with local interlocutors or institutional counterparts in this area
. an event at the end of the residency period open to the community

This year the proposed theme is “Matter“:
Constantly living in a digital world, let’s look for a moment to focus on the essential meaning that matter intrinsically has, and on the ambivalence generated by its being the starting point and arrival of infinite transformations.

Participation in the selection is open to international artists who have reached the legal age.

The artist who adhere to the proposal will have the opportunity to develop the project  for a sculpture or installation that will be permanently positioned in the external  area of the association (forest, meadow, stream) in a position to be agreed upon jointly.
Priority will be given to works that will mainly use the natural material available on site.  

During the residency period the artist is invited to share his path in the realization of the work through studio-visits, meetings or workshops.
The documentation must be sent in pdf format  to the email address
by April 30th, 2024

It will be the responsibility of the organizing committee to evaluate the proposals and invite the selected artists by May 15th, 2024
