Call for Artists | Santorini Biennale 2016

santorini-biennale-2016-alice-wonderland-3.jpg

ARTISTIC THEME

Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. Who is Alice, where is Wonderland and what is the Wonder?

Alice is moving in a world where the established perceptions about life are overruled and the “common morality” is mocked with great passion. Even if these two elements are mainly found in the work of Albert Camus, in the case of Alice we observe a “system of absolute freedom” same as the system supported by Sartre, in which the individual has the absolute liberty to determine his personality. But is this possible? Is “every Alice” a being that has been placed into “existence” without commitments and suggested to shape itself and its environment?

Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. of Regina, Saskatchewan, is commissioning the creation of a large, outdoor, three-dimensional sculptural work of art that represents Indigenous heritage – and is asking for your Expression of Interest. The artist should have experience in working with large pieces of sculpture and have the ability to create and securely place the sculpture in a natural setting.

Your Expression of Interest should include information about your personal background and expertise, pictures to serve as examples of your work, and your ideas or suggestions for the piece: i.e. size, materials, rough idea of imagery, etc. Your Expression of Interest will be kept confidential and will be reviewed by a selection committee who will select the top four submissions. Finalists will be invited to submit a more detailed proposal and will receive an honorarium of $1000 for their submission. Inquiries should be directed to Elmer Brenner, artistic coordinator for the project, at elmerb.psc@gmail.com or by calling (306) 530-7196.
The Expression of Interest is due by July 29, 2016 and is to be emailed to Elmer Brenner atelmerb.psc@gmail.com, delivered to Laurie Clark at Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. 809 Victoria Ave, Regina, Saskatchewan, S4N 0R5 by 4:00pm on the due date, or mailed to Laurie Clark at Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. with a postmark no later than July 29, 2016.

Visions of urban infrastructure #25in25: A Public Art Retrospective

unnamed

Mimicking the Art Deco-influenced electrical substations existing throughout Vancouver, and pointing back to earlier days of mass access to electricity, Cedric Bomford’s Substation Pavilion poses as the old in the heart of the new. Its careful detailing, tiered windows and bevelled mouldings harken back to a time when ornament was paramount to visions of urban infrastructure—lowly substations and grand pavilions alike.

Despite its affection for handcraft, the Art Deco movement was surprisingly economical in execution, standardizing its geometric and low-relief motifs for a variety of architectural applications. Just as design provided an opportunity to beautify one’s surroundings, it was understood that appearances were part and parcel of the urban experience: the city, a collection of visual details. But what of the invisible, subterranean systems that make it all possible?
