Is your work stale, or your career in the doldrums?
Do you want to develop a new body of ceramic work or a fresh interdisciplinary research project, but lack direction?
Do you need to recharge your mental and creative batteries?
Do you dream of photographing your work in a unique, original environment?
If your answer to any of these questions is YES, a Ceramics Residency with Dr Wendy Gers is the answer.
Ceramics Residency offers a professional artistic residency with personalized mentoring and artistic coaching in idyllic conditions. We provide well-equipped studios and work spaces, inspiring locations, comfortable lodging, outstanding food, and a safe environment to work through any goal or challenge in your artistic practice.
Our first Ceramics Residency, Pause 2019, is set in a quiet, remote Himalayan village. It offers the perfect setting to take time out, and reflect on your practice in an awe-inspiring natural environment. Wendy Gers, an internationally acclaimed curator and scholar, has mentored artists across the globe, and will help you move your practice up a notch or two!
Pause 2019 is a chance to rejuvenate your creative, intellectual and personal life forces. This exclusive residency for 8 artists will develop and stretch your creative practice and imagination. You will extend your art skills, participate in informal lectures and demonstrations, group and individual discussions, and one-on-one mentoring sessions.
In addition, exciting excursions and meetings with village artists and crafters are planned for the weekends.
Your journey begins when you sign up. It starts with your travel planning, takes off with a finely curated artistic adventure, and fantastic opportunities to spend time with interesting, talented like-minded artists. Wendy and your host, Shalini Dam (artist and chef extraordinaire) will ensure that you have the intellectual, artistic and technical support to move your practice to the next level.
