Residency Program 2022
Modernist art objects were transportable, nomadic, could only exist in the museum space, and were the objects of the market and commodification. Since 1960 the artists were trying to find a way out of this situation and thus drew attention to the site and the context around this site. The work of art was created on the site and could only exist and in such circumstances, it can not be moved or changed. The site is a current location, which comprises a unique combination of physical elements: depth, length, weight, height, shape, walls, and temperature. With this thought, Motile has gathered with some aspiring artists in Rangamati, West Bengal. The people here are involved in various agricultural activities as their foremost occupation. In this residency, we invite artists from different parts of India to explore, experience, and get connected with nature. This initiative primarily celebrates an artist's connection with nature using materials found on the site. The concept is best understood in relation to historic earth or Land art and the evolving field of ecological art. The field is interdisciplinary in the fact that environmental artists embrace ideas from science and philosophy. The practice encompasses traditional media, new media, and critical social forms of production. Participants has interact and interchanged their thoughts with each other to get a better understanding of that period.
