10 kontaining ad
Kontaining is inviting applications for its two-week takeover of a shipping container in Lasipalatsinaukio, Helsinki, from the 29th of May until the 10th of June 2012. Kontaining is produced by Ptarmigan ry in association with the Arts Council of Uusimaa.
We are looking for proposals that take into consideration the specific site of the container in Kamppi, in the categories of installation, performance and/ or participatory activities. Through an application process 8-10 artists will be invited to use the container for 24 hours (from 9am to 9am). In preparing a program from the applications, we will look at the possibility of artists from different disciplines collaborating on the same day if their works are suitably compatible.
The project is process-oriented, supports experimentation and is targeted at emerging to mid-career artists from a variety of genres and backgrounds, and encourages interactive and site-specific artwork and cross-media exchange. At the end of the two weeks, the project will host an Open Day which will invite all the participants to celebrate the developments and results of the week's events.
Kontaining will provide the selected artists the possibility to use the space for 24 hours, with access to electricity.
All other costs are to be covered by the applicant. You need to install and de-install + look after the space while your work is there.
