In resi­dence soon: Ste­ven Scho­ch Manu­el Köch­li Dario Zeo Chri­sti­an Löf­fel ➔ Nico­la Spycher

The resi­den­cy Vil­le­kul­la is meant to be in a pro­cess of con­stant trans­for­ma­ti­on; edit­ing, deve­lo­ping, focu­sing, re-ela­bo­ra­ting and re-enacting. 

Our main inte­rest lays in one’s cur­rent sta­te of thoughts, expe­ri­ments and expres­si­on, rather than in what has been achie­ved in the past. Which traces are fol­lo­wed, what influ­en­ces are taken into account?

Bes­i­des fer­ti­li­sing a space of focus on one’s own artis­tic acti­vi­ties, it is fun­da­men­tal to us to as well con­sti­tu­te a basis for exchan­ge and a nou­ris­hing ground for cul­tu­ral dis­cour­se for and with the immedia­te envi­ron­ment of the resi­den­cy. What com­pon­ents take part in and defi­ne the artis­tic pro­ces­ses? Does the vil­la­ge baker get invi­ted for bre­ak­fast or inclu­ded in the pro­cess of a work? Are the picked pears just put in the cel­lar or do you enjoy their juice?

Anna Zoe Büh­ler – Floo­rs and hearts 20. 07. 2021

Thanks to all the peop­le who orga­ni­se @residency.villekulla It was a very very nice first expe­ri­ence of being artist in resi­dence!
This mon­th past fast,
mate­ri­al got shaped,
floo­rs beca­me dir­ty,
minds had a coold­own,
bodies hea­ted up,
sun show­ed up again,
peop­le got to know each other,
food took a bath in oil,
hearts are sad to lea­ve.

Thank you

LULU&WHISKEY – into the swamp 25. 06. 2021

Die kla­re Linie zwi­schen uns und dem Sumpf fängt an zu ver­schwim­men. Wir sind leben­di­ge Syste­me, eine ler­nen­de Spe­zi­es, die von der Natur um uns, in uns und allen dar­in ent­hal­te­nen Daseins­for­men mit lernt. Als Teil eines grös­se­ren Öko­sy­stems dif­fun­die­ren wir durch kör­per­li­che Gren­zen und wuchern über Kate­go­rien hin­aus. Das Beschrei­ten die­ser neu­en Gefil­de ver­än­dert unse­re Wahr­neh­mung und das Ver­ständ­nis von den Zusam­men­hän­gen im Leben. Gemein­sam mit Bak­te­ri­en, Flech­ten, Algen und Schnecken bre­chen wir auf zu einer gei­sti­gen Rei­se auf einen poten­ti­el­len Pla­ne­ten. Das Be- und Durch­schrei­ten, das Abta­sten die­ses unbe­kann­ten Rau­mes, lässt in uns neue Wel­ten ent­ste­hen. Aus unse­rer Vor­stel­lung kri­stal­li­sie­ren sich Lebe­we­sen, Daseins­for­men und Land­schaf­ten her­vor, die sich um uns neu manifestieren.
