Animalia 2020

Sandro Scarmiglia was born in Rome in 1964 and graduated in painting at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in 1990. 

In the same year he begins his collaboration as an assistant designer for television programs on Rai and Fininvest. With the same qualification in 1996 he landed in cinema with the film "LUNA E L’ALTRA" by M. Nichetti. 

As a scenographer he collaborates to the realization of great events and conventions, later he signs scenes and costumes for theatrical performances including Hard Love by M. Lerner directed by Roberto Silvestri and Aria Nova by Pierpaolo Palladino with the direction of B. Maccallini. 

With A.m.r.e.f. and Dulcimer he participates to a humanitarian project project for poor children in Nairobi organizing the show "Mgona mtaani" which debuts in Italy at Umbria jazz in 2009.

Parallel to his professional career as a scenographer, he has always kept alive his deep interest for plastic research, finally arriving to sculpture.

Solo and group exhibitions in Italy, Argentina and Austria.

Rino Banko

artist-in-residence guest - 03_2022
Abstrakte Skulptur
Autoportret_Misao u prostoru_br.2.(A)

geb. 1994 in Pula 
Studium der Bildhauerei in Rijeka, 2018 Abschluss zweijährigen Masterstudiengang.
Derzeit Assistenzprofessor an der Akademie für Angewandte Kunst in Rijeka, Abteilung Bildhauerei, und Mitglied der Kroatischen Gesellschaft Bildender Künstler Istriens.
Gruppen- und Einzelausstellungen im In- und Ausland (Zagreb, Rijeka, Kostrena, Opatija, Lovran, Labin, Pula, Umag, Piran, Koper (Slowenien), Düsseldorf). 

Arbeitskonzept für Salzburg:
"Die Werkreihe "Kerne" entspringt meinem eigenen bildhauerischen Denken und der Beziehung, die ich zu der Materie und den Materialien entwickle, mit denen ich arbeite. Im Falle des Steins umfassen diese Gedanken die Elemente, die ihn formen und die Strukturen, die seinen Abbau bestimmen. Elemente wie Wasser und bestimmte atmosphärische Elemente verändern ständig die Form organischer Materialien.
Was mich als Bildhauer interessiert, ist, wie ich diese "Modellierung", die durch verschiedene Einflüsse und Faktoren entsteht, nutzen und betonen kann und welche Beziehung zwischen natürlicher Modellierung und Zeit zusammen mit meiner eigenen Formgebung und meinen Eingriffen in dasselbe Material besteht.
"

Istvan Felsmann

artist-in-residence guest - 04_2022
"Supersymmetry II"
Lego, spray, 42 x 32 x 1,50cm, 2021

Born 1984 in Budapest. Lives and works in Budapest.

Education 2016 - 2013:
Hungarian University of Fine Arts, Budapest, Hungary
Master in Painting, Graphic Design Faculty

Artist statement:
"In my art, I aspire to the interdisciplinary approach, I try to define the form by concept, therefore, there are no formal limits. I make sculptures, kinetic objects, performances. I would like to avoid aesthetics, I think the work can be timeless if it comes from the nature of its subject. I'm trying to find simple connections and through these to examine the big picture.
In terms of themes and subjects, I like to think about the future of fine arts (if is it possible get closer to the level of Malevich). I am interested in the mystery of the technological development of our time, the systems of social and political relations. I do not understand much how and how it works my art is often based on impressions."

Karen Weinert

artist-in-residence Gastkünstlerin - 05_2022

geb. 1976 in Dresden.
Aufbaustudium „Curating“, Hochschule der Künste Zürich, 2009/10
Meisterschülerin von Prof. Martin Honert, HfBK Dresden, 2007
Studium „Visuelle Kommunikation (mit Schwerpunkt Fotografie & Ausstellungs- und Grafikdesign)“ bei Prof. Elfi Fröhlich und Prof. Hermann Stamm (1998–2004)
Ausbildung zur Fotografin bei Werner Lieberknecht, Dresden (1995–98).
Stipendien und Auslandsaufenthalte seit 2006.
Seit 2008 Einzel- und Gruppenausstellungen in Deutschland, Österreich, Polen, Finnland und Korea.

Da das Stipendium der Künstlerin zum zweiten Mal in Folge wegen Corona verschoben wurde, hat sich auch ihr künstlerisches Interesse an Salzburg leicht verlagert. Die Pandemiesituation soll dabei nicht direkt Thema der Arbeiten werden, vielmehr will sie in diesem Zusammenhang die Begegnung mit einer Stadt, welche u.a. vom Tourismus geprägt ist, hinterfragen. „Mich interessieren dabei konzeptuelle fotografische Ansätze - ich möchte ein subjektives Porträt der Stadt entwickeln, welches von Textfragmenten begleitet wird. Insofern ist der Aufenthalt für mich auch ein Experiment mit offenem Ausgang, auf welches ich mich sehr freue.“

Während dem Gastaufenthalt möchte Karen Weinert darüber hinaus die Salzburger Kunst- und Fotoszene näher kennenlernen, um mögliche Kooperationsformen in Hinblick auf ihren Ausstellungsraum in Dresden zu finden.

Emily Donovan

Emily Donovan
Feather Remnants Natural Dye on Paper including Madder, Tara Pod, Goldenrod and iron. 30” x 40”

BA OF STUDIO ART AND ART HISTORY, UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, MAY 2010.

Artist statement:
„I love being outdoors, watching things grow and learning about what colors can be made from nature. My paintings are created on paper with handmade dyes from natural materials using methods and recipes that are centuries old and shared by all cultures. The process includes a bit of chemistry, observation of plants and seasonal cycles and research. 

The layers of natural colors are representations of discovery, or the landscape where I gathered, the people who helped or memories about the day. I like to think each are a celebration of what the natural world has to offer and the age old traditions of making color naturally that are passed from one generation to the next.

Salzburg’s natural dye and pigment history is significant. The Hallstatt
region, located within an hour of the Künstlerhaus has textiles recently excavated dated to be over 3,000 years old. These artifacts are studied and colors have been recreated. During the residency, I propose researching the same colors and expand my knowledge with Weld, Madder and Woad. I would like to create a series of small-scale works with these pigments on paper.

I will include ideas about history and the use of natural color, its place in the Hallstatt region now and within the urban center of Salzburg. These works will create a sense of place inspired by the landscape and also provide a unique expression about Austrian’s tradition with natural color.“

Corrie Francis Parks

Die Künstlerin ist im Rahmen des Media Art Stipendiums in Kooperation mit subnet artist-in-residence der Stadt Salzburg - 09_2022

Corrie Francis Parks brings life to the inanimate through frame-by-frame manipulation of physical materials. With one hand under the camera and the other on the computer keyboard, her films and installations maintain an organic connection to traditional production methods while fully integrating digital technology. She is an Associate Professor of Animation at University of Maryland, Baltimore County and author of the book, „Fluid Frames: Animating Under the Camera with Sand, Clay, Paint and Pixels“.

Jurybegründung:
The invited artist Corrie Francis Parks and the proposed project Embodied Ice focus on translating glacial time to human time. It is an interactive video installation which gives the audience the possibility to participate and get in contact with the artwork. 

For the residency in Salzburg the existing part will be adapted and further developed with material on site, including data inputs on human activity from public places or samples from the Salzach. With Miniature rock glaciers, the project addresses the social environmental problems. 

The artist was selected based on the high-quality project proposal that incorporates the aesthetics of techno-science in tangible projects and the clear Salzburg reference.

Small Talk #4 Evereything weather 2019
The curatorial team of Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF) 2019 have been invited to collaborate with UiT The Arctic University of Norway and their research project Stressor. The field expedition takes place in an area of the Norwegian Sea outside the Lofoten islands. During the expedition I was on board the research ship “Helmer Hanssen”. During the cruise I concentrated on observing and collecting material and data on weather that definitely was a significant factor on life on board. Weather in times of climate change is one of my biggest themes. Observing how numbers and data really feel and how they affect our behaviour and action interested me also on Helmer Hanssen. Work Everything weather is a new comission for biennale LIAF 2019.

Statement
I am visual artist, illustrator, nomadic gardener and art educator.
Walking, observing, asking, talking, being in silence, listening, imagining, picking, foraging, mapping and drawing are some of my tools. I focus on  processes of connecting, sharing, doing, being and learning together. At the moment I work on different collaborative interdisciplinary projects focusing on environmental and diversity issues in times of climate change. 

As an board member of the Mustarinda Association I work with projects intertwining art, science and ecological and cultural diversity.

Jurybegründung:
„Michaela Casková (Helsinki) beschäftigt sich mit Wetter- und Umweltbeobachtungen. 
Die Künstlerin gründet ihre künstlerische Arbeit auf ihr ökologisches Engagement. In Zentrum ihrer Arbeit steht die Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Umwelt, insbesondere auch die Auseinandersetzung mit der Klimakrise. 
Für ihr Ausstellungsprojekt macht es Sinn, dass Michaela Casková sich in Salzburg länger aufhalten und dazu das Atelier der Stadt im Künstlerhaus Salzburg nutzen kann.

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.
