Open Call: Residency in Arita, Japan 2018

In 2018, Creative Industries Fund NL and the Mondriaan Fund are once again jointly offering two residency periods in the Japanese ceramics region of Saga. The funds invite designers and artists to submit a proposal by 14 July at the latest.
The residency in Japan offers highly promising artists and designers the leeway to conduct artistic and technical research and to develop their personal work, which must also lead to intensive interaction with the relevant porcelain manufacturers in the region. An important guiding principle for this residency is to learn special techniques within Japan’s oldest ceramics industry and employ them in their own work.

Rationale
The highly particular Arita porcelain is renowned for its superior quality, most notably the hand-painting it involves. This tradition of porcelain painting has existed since 1616. Arita is a small town in the Saga prefecture on Kyushu, which is Japan’s third largest island. The Dutch designer duo Scholten & Baijings and Japanese designer Teruhiro Yanagihara are involved with this celebration as artistic directors of the Arita 2016 project. They have established this residency in association with the Mondriaan Fund and Creative Industries Fund NL in order to stimulate crossovers and experimentation, as well as to initiate new collaborations between Dutch artists & designers and Japanese potteries. Designers Jan Broekstra and Floris van Wubben and artists Henri Jacobs and Ruta Butkute de Roo stayed at the Arita residence in 2016. In 2017, artists Susan Kooi and Helen Frik and designers Tijmen Smeulders and Aliki van der Kruis are working there.

For who?
The residency can be applied for only by visual artists (via the Mondriaan Fund) or designers (via Creative Industries Fund NL). For applications by duos or cooperatives, each individual involved must submit a separate application. A duo is understood as two artists or designers who produce work together on a structural basis. Duos (project-specific or longer-term) are regarded as collaborations if they submit a joint plan that leads to a single outcome for the work period. In addition, a duo must be prepared to live and work in a single, somewhat confined space.

The artists/designers are expected to possess some basic knowledge of working with ceramics. There is no need for a concrete project proposal, but a good description of plans and ideas that the applicant wants to execute during the work period.

The work period and financial support
The work periods being offered are:

1 June–31 August 2018
1 September–30 November 2018
Your preferred residency period should be indicated in your application. If possible, this preference will be respected.

A sum of €9,500 is available for travel, materials, transportation and living expenses for each period. The Mondriaan Fund/Creative Industries Fund NL will pay the costs of the studio, the living space and support to Arita directly. The residents should reserve €1,500 to remunerate the potters for their guidance during the work process.

Practical information
Before the work period begins, Scholten & Baijings and Teruhiro Yanagihara will pair the residents with one of the 10 participating potteries in Arita. This pottery is also the point of contact when seeking technical support from the Ceramic Technical Research Laboratory in Arita. An assistant/translator is available to help the residents for several hours per week, in discussions with the potteries and other practical matters.
An artist and a designer work in Arita for each period. The residents stay in a traditional Japanese house where they each have their own room. The living room, bathroom and kitchen are shared.

The experiences and results of the residency will be shared in Arita and later in the Netherlands by means of lectures and/or workshops.

Evaluation criteria
All the submitted applications that meet the formal conditions and are furnished with all the requested appendices will be put before an advisory committee. This panel evaluates the quality and development of the applicant’s work in relation to the residency’s location, based on:
portfolio (max. 15 A4 pages);
CV of the applicant (max. two A4 pages);
the applicant’s motivation in relation to the location (max. four A4 pages).
In all cases the committee advises first and foremost about the artistic quality of the portfolio. It then advises about the motivation and the plans in relation to the location.
The available places can only be allocated if the advisory committee’s advice with regard to the abovementioned criteria is positive. The committee may apply a prioritization.

Submissions
The proposal can be submitted via the Fund’s online application environment.
