Our dear friends at amaneï in Santa Marina Salina (Aeolian Islands, Italy) share a wonderful OPEN CALL: " "The project Iancura takes its name from a unique meteorological phenomenon known in the Aeolian dialect. It signifies a moment of temporal suspension when the sea and sky merge, creating a motionless, white, and milky landscape. Just as Iancura represents a temporary suspension, where the sea and sky merge in a motionless and ethereal state, the untold stories exist as dormant narratives waiting to be unveiled." amaneï welcomes applications from candidates from different stages of their careers and backgrounds, with a focus on experimental practices in visual arts, cultural theory, performance, filmmaking, curating, literal translation, and writing. The residency period lasts one month (April/May 2024, TBC exact dates), with four residents at a time." DEADLINE APPLICATION 25 SEPTEMBER 2023 ~ click to read more

In his work, YOERI GUÉPIN (DAI, 2013) connects social processes with ecosystems. His practice consists of research projects, performative lectures and workshops, ecological community projects, films and installations. For his solo exhibition The Smallest Gesture, Guépin is working with his father and grandmother on a film and installation in which they link the loss of biodiversity and industrial forms of agriculture to his father's illness. How can we tell stories from marginalized and more than human perspectives that give us new insight into the current epistemological socio-environmental crisis?
