Skaftfell is now inviting applications from individual artists and artistic collaborators to participate in the self-directed residency program in 2021.
Application deadline: September 1, 2020
About the program:
Skaftfell Center for Visual Art is located in Seyðisfjörður, a small town of around 700 inhabitants in Iceland’s eastfjords, which is surrounded by a stunning chain of mountains. Despite its small size, Seyðisfjörður offers a rich and diverse cultural life, and has a long history of welcoming visiting artists.
The Skaftfell residencies offer quiet time and space for independent research, reflection, and experimentation. Artists are encouraged to use their stay for in-depth inquiries into their work processes and conceptual interests, to use the magnificent nature of the fjord as a source of energy and inspiration, to work at the interface of art and life, to share thoughts with other artists, and to embrace the idea of a “slow residency” that is embedded in a small but vibrant rural community. The program is best suited to visual artists, artists with interdisciplinary practices, curators and art writers.
