Calling all Herefordshire Artists! Do you love festivals, making site-specific artwork and creating new experiences for an audience? Nozstock The Hidden Valley is seeking artists to produce on-site work for our 2022 festival. We are commissioning two original and innovative site-specific installations, to be displayed throughout the site during the festival dates of 21st to 24th July 2022.
We are looking for new work that responds appropriately to our theme of ‘Parallel Worlds.’ We have identified two separate locations on-site that will accommodate the work, and are seeking one artwork per space to be installed. The project would suit artists working in the mediums such as sculpture, interactive art, sound art, light installation, moving image.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Simple, original and innovative site specific installations exploring the mediums of sound, light and video. Engaging, interactive works of art which will engage the festival audience and augment their Nozstock experience. Thought provoking and fun, accessible for all ages and walks of life.
The selected artists will receive a commission of £1250 each. This is to include artist fee, travel and fabrication costs. The artists will also have access to a dedicated team of fabricators to help realise their ideas on-site. The festival has a specialist work crew who are highly experienced in realising artwork for the festival site. The festival has a resource of materials available for the fabrication of this project. This includes wood, fixings and basic technology such as screens and speakers. The selected artists will be invited to explore the site locations, in order to help them finalise their designs.
– 250’word personal statement including a description of your artistic practice. Any experience of creating site-specific installations. What your installation would bring to the festival environment.
– An up to date CV
– Up to four images/video/sound files of previous work. (These can be sent via WeTransfer, or as online links)
You can apply as long as you have a Herefordshire based postcode.
The deadline for submissions is 07th June 2022.
