IS.LAND is a two weeks intensive residency program organized by BJCEM on the island of Procida in the framework of Procida Capitale Italiana della Cultura 2022. The residency will take place from September 12 to 25.
Five international artists under 35 and from the Mediterranean area will be invited to develop a process-based project on the island with the aim of collaborating with local communities and professionals in the production of an artwork of any nature. The participation of the five IS.LAND residents will be framed by a wider curatorial project – The Tending of the Otherwise – imagined by Simone Frangi and Alessandro Castiglioni and promoted and developed by BJCEM on the occasion of Procida Capitale Italiana della Cultura 2022.
BJCEM has selected the following artists:
Soukaina Abrour, Marocco/Italy
Tuce Alba, Turkey
৺ ෴ ර ∇ ❃﹌﹌ (CNSSS), Italy/Germany
Mati Jhurry, Italy/Mauritius
Evdokia Noula, Greece
BJCEM will collaborate with the network MIRAMAR to support artist Beatrice Celli’s residency.
The participation to IS.LAND will lead to an Open Studio on the 25th of September 2022 where the five artistic projects will be publicly presented to local and international audiences. The development of the projects in Procida will be accompanied by the curators, BJCEM team and the production team of Procida Capitale della Cultura.
