The Artist-in-Residence Program provides local and visiting artists, curators, and researchers with accomodation and studio facilities at the Tile Factory, providing a unique space for the creation, development and exchange of creative ideas and projects. The program serves most of all as a meeting place for artists: facilitating creative encounters, discussions and the exchange of experiences, and then opening these up to the public, acting as a conduit to the outside world.

In a sense, the residency acts as an incubator for the creation and exchange of ideas, experiences and representations. In the course of residency, our public - both within the region and further afield - are encouraged to engage with activities planned to help create awareness of one's own cultural difference and uniqueness. Each artist is given the opportunity to propose and focus on a particular project while in residence, which may be influenced or inspired by the reality of daily life in the city, the country and the region. Opportunities to work with local artists and the local community during the residencies will be plentiful and strongly encouraged.  

Applications are currently closed.

Uriel Barthélémi

"Exhaustion" is a sound triptych, part of the 2010 Jerusalem Show: Exhaustion. It takes the form of three "rituals" rendez vous, each investigating the sound, musical and physical aspect of exhaustion. The underground sprawl of energy brought in for each performance traces the evolution of speech, and shows the different layers of exhaustion explored.

Resonance of things and their suffocation: suite of sound images, of resonance lost in the acoustic space... an exploration of the non-existence of the silence and its saturation.

Dispersal of the musical energy : Construction of a musical continuum, where we attend in the progressive deterioration of the ideas renewing the speech and in the impoverishment of the sound language, by way of the progressive abolition of the tools of expressions.

"Même en dehors du normal": Explicit drums powered resistance.
