CRAWL ME BLOOD RESIDENCY APPLICATIONS OPEN – ADHOCRACY
VITALSTATISTIX

Vitalstatistix is now seeking expressions-of-interest from South Australian artists interested in participating in the Crawl Me Blood residency.

As this year’s Adhocracy residency project, interdisciplinary artists Halcyon Macleod and Willoh S. Weiland will work with ten South Australian artists to explore the theme of ‘longing for paradise’, including romantic notions of landscape versus reality and dislocation. The collaborators will create short audio works, which will be integrated into a mockup installation. Adhocracy will enable the team to experiment with a dynamic layering of audio and visual worlds, and physical experience.

The work-in-progress, as a participatory experience for audiences, alongside artist talks by the team about the residency and the work, will be presented as part of Adhocracy 2015, over three nights.
