3×8 – NATURE

ARTISTS IN RESIDENCY

Lecce, 13–20 September 2021

Applications are open till 25 July 2021

The call is the place where different jargons meet to experiment with new ways to explore the territory and interpret the landscape, also fostering a new look at the present days. Each author is invited to develop a personal work using the photographic medium, with the possibility to weave photography with other arts, such as sound and moving images. Meetings, talks and discussions with the teachers and experts invited during the residency will support the artists during their creative process by offering interdisciplinary contributions.

The residency programme will also feature the presence of two outstanding artists who have been invited to carry out a personal photographic project focussing on the Nature theme. For the entire residency period, Mark Steinmetz and Irina Rozovsky will be staying in Lecce, working as photographers and as instructors at the residency and at a workshop that will be held on the same days.

IN NATURE

WORKSHOP WITH MARK STEINMETZ AND IRINA ROZOVSKY

Lecce, 14–18 September 2021

Applications are open till 5 August 2021

The workshop is oriented towards photographers who have an interest in developing a personal project. Their aim is to explore the concept of nature, starting from the observation of the landscape in the Veneto and Puglia regions. Interpreting the many forms in which nature reveals itself, and the relationships that derive from it, through our perception of the environment that surrounds us: this opens reflection on the contemporary landscape, its potential but also its critical aspects.

The goal of the workshop is to investigate the area around Lecce using photography to document its transformations. The focus is on the changes in the landscape induced over the centuries by practices like stone extraction, deforestation, urbanization and cultivation of large areas once covered with Mediterranean scrubland and to discover how these have changed the orography of a mainly flat area.

The workshop will be held by the American photographers Mark Steinmetz and Irina Rozovsky, assisted by a group of teachers.
