Lebt und arbeitet in Cavalese, wo er das Städtische Museum für zeit-genössische Kunst leitet.

2018, Zirbenholz, 190 x 120 x 35 cm, Parco d´Arte RESPIRARTE, A Alpe di Pampeago

„Il mio linguaggio espressivo è quello della scultura in legno, e non sarà possibile portare l'attrezzatura necessaria presso l'alloggio che mi è stato destinato. Quindi mi potrò dedicare al disegno, in particolare a pastello e china, e vorrei creare un intero libro d'artista con le suggestioni date dalla vostra bellissima città.

Ho sempre considerato le nostre Alpi come un punto di incontro e contatto tra il mondo del Mediterraneo e quello Nordico. Cavalese, e la mia valle, si avvicinano verso il sud delle Alpi alla cultura mediterranea.

Salisburgo invece, più in alto, alla cultura nordica. Il mio lavoro è da sempre influenzato da questo affascinante incontro, dalla sua  dialettica che mi coinvolge e che cerco di risolvere attraverso l'espressione artistica.“

Csilla Bartus

artist-in-residence guest - 02_2023
'_andscapes' and 'pseudopodia'
exhibition detail from 'At the edge of the world' exhibiiton at Art Encounters Foundation, 2022

Csilla Bartus was born 1996 in Romania. Lives in Budapest and works both in Romania and in Hungary. Graduated from the University of Art and Design Cluj-Napoca from the Faculty of fine arts, graphic department with a minor in psychopedagogy. Meanwhile she gathered some skills in digital art and graphic design, and now opened more for the idea of spatial design and installations.

„Interdisciplinarity and experiments are the core of her rhizomatic processes. Has a big fascination on how everything is interrelated and how different parts can resonate, searching for anchor points to connect them in ways to reveal, to preserve, and to create a dialogue, or a story. She mainly observes and explores what it means to be human and/or non-human in the _andscapes, a term usedby her to summarise the multitude of scapes that are well known, speculative and yet unknown for us.

Meaning the principal sources for her poetic - techno - (pseudo)scientific works. Observing and critically reflecting on the tension between technology, nature and humans.

Everyday life happenings, random associations and constellation are also used as raw materials in her works. Intimacy is explored in the contexts of personal memories in relation to anything that surrounds her.“

For upcoming projects Leslie Barlow wants to use the time in Salzburg to unpack a recent trip to the land her family survived. 2022 she gathered photos and ephemera from Dyer, Tenesse where a few generations back her family escaped from the north, the same land her family was enslaved on. She wants to make drawings that explore her ancestral connection to this place as well as the impact of the ”Great Migration” and the complexities of a mixed heritage.

The time in Salzburg, focusing on the work will be used to prepare and come back to Minnesota with a new perspective and works on paper completed. Furthermore she wants to explore Salzburg and its art life and to connect with other artists.

Birk Alison Öhrlund

artist-in-residence guest - 10_2023
"The Astronaut"

Born 1995 in Stockholm 
Currently living in Gothenburg
2015-2017 - Film production, Katrinebergs Folkhögskola
2018-2020, Scriptwriting for Film- and Television, Dalarna University
2020-2022, Film- and Television Production, Dalarna University (Bachelors Degree)
2022-2024, Masters program in Audiovisual Studies, Dalarna University

Artist statement:
”I'm a strong believer in that everything we do as humans, inspire us as artists. I am also a bartender and mixologist with five years of experience - something that also inspires my creative work. 
My artforms are a wide variety of filmmaking, writing, photography, painting and miniature building - often around themes of identity, social expectations and issues, being queer, growing up and being human. I am currently studying for my masters degree thesis in Audiovisual Studies where I mainly do research on character development, cinematic frameworks and audiovisual impact. 
For my stay in Salzburg, I have a plan and challenge for myself to create a small film every week of a different theme or genre, while also developing a longer script for a project further on. The goal is to be inspired an incorporate something from my time in Salzburg into every project.” 

Liv Hui Laam Tsim

Die Künstlerin ist im Rahmen des Media Art Stipendiums in Kooperation mit subnet artist-in-residence der Stadt Salzburg - 11_2023
"Infection Invader"
2020, credit by Liv TSIM, LAM Siu Ying & FUNG Wing Lam

Received her bachelor’s training at Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University and will finish her MA Biodesign course in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of Arts, London in 2023. 
Her works were exhibited in several international exhibitions, including The 1st Hong Kong-ShenZhen Design Biennale.
Liv Tsim’s practice emphasizes biotic material, bio-ethics, and environmental justice. She is fond of exploring the inner connections and challenges between multi-species and holistic ecosystems. 
In response to the exploitation and degradation of the natural world in the Anthropocene, she believes activism could be initiated and empowered by artwork and art movements. 
As a part of the ecosystem, there is no way we could be exceptional from the ecological chaos. Inspired by various biological morphology, sociology, and philosophy, she has been transferring their characteristics into playful and critical creations, inviting the audience to engage in the co-learning experience.

The jury recommends Liv Hui Laam Tsim for the MediaART Salzburg residency. 
Her proposal Soo-Chew convinced the jury with its cutting edge artistic research based on a combination of biological and technological components. 
The jury is looking forward to seeing the project developed further in Salzburg.

Amy Schissel

artist-in-residence guest - 12_2023
Transobjectional 1 by Amy Schissel
62' x 55', acrylic and ink on canvas; Installation view

Amy Schissel is a Canadian artist, presently based in Miami FL. She obtained her BFA and MFA (2009) from the University of Ottawa.
In 2013 she received Ottawa’s Royal Bank of Canada Emerging Artist Award.
Recent national and international exhibitions include among others a solo project in the NYC ARMORY SHOW's curated 'FOCUS' section (Jamillah James, curator ICA, LA) with Patrick Mikhail Gallery.

I propose to build ‘New World Order’, a paper based, site-specific installation, in response to Periscope’s submission call.


"Amy Schissel (Miami, USA) erarbeitet während ihres Aufenthaltes in Salzburg eine raumbezogene Installation, bestehend aus mitgebrachten Papierarbeiten und Wandmalereien. In der Dichte der graphischen Elemente tun sich Assoziationen zu Kosmos und Welt auf, damit verbunden
können Fragen nach unserem Verhältnis zu Welt und Weltordnung thematisiert werden. 
Die Arbeit von Amy Schissel trifft in ihrem Raumbezug ein Grundmotiv des periscope:Projektraumes und in ihrer Inhaltlichkeit das Jahresthema „Umwelt“. Die Einladung der amerikanischen Künstlerin stellt einen Mehrwert für alle im periscope ausstellenden Künstler*innen und die Salzburger Szene dar."

International exchange of guest studios

The city of Salzburg has been renting a guest studio that is used for the artist exchange program since 1986. The city of Salzburg works closely with public and private institutions in Europe and in the US, where it has established an artist exchange program with selected cities, which is regularly joined by new partners. The program promotes cooperation between culturally-minded and active cities and is based on mutual exchange on equal terms.
Specifically this means that the city of Salzburg provides foreign artists with the opportunity to live and work in Salzburg for 1 to 2 months. To this end, the city makes available a live-in studio in the Künstlerhaus. In return, artists from Salzburg have the opportunity to live and work in a studio in the partner cities for an equivalent period of time under the same conditions. The objective of this special cultural promotion is to offer the artists the opportunity to gather new impression and practical experience and to assimilate these into their work. The stay also serves to establish new contacts and to set up a network between the participating artists and cities on this basis.
