Working with partners, Espace 36 in Saint-Omer, we are developing a project which explores issues around location, residence, migration and what it means to be a European in the newly defined territory of Europe.
1 UK and 1 French artist will each spend up to 15 days in each region to develop their work. The residencies will be based in Dover and Saint-Omer; the county of Kent and Côte d'Opale will form the project's areas of research. The artists' work will be exhibited together: 6 September – 10 October 2009 in the gallery of Espace 36 in Saint-Omer and 24 October – 28 November 2009 in a non-gallery space in Dover. The interpretation/mediation of the artists' work to the public in Saint-Omer and Dover is an integral part of the project and will be led by the mediation co-ordinator with Espace 36, in liaison with the artists and partners. read more
