12 april, 2023

Norwegian BioArt Arena/NOBA is the foundation of Vitenparken campus Ås´ Art Department and a platform where art and science can meet on equal terms. NOBA is the first venue in Norway dedicated to bio art. This Summer, NOBA will host two Ukrainian artists in residence. The program is supported by Fritt Ord (The Freedom of Speech Foundation), Kulturdirektoratet (Arts Council Norway), and Viken Fylkeskommune (Viken County Council).

Application deadline 20 April 11.59 PM.

WHO CAN APPLY? Graduated artists who are Ukrainian citizens. Both recent artist graduates and other artists who could benefit from the program can apply. The applicant must consider how their project fits NOBA´s profile. Please read more below.

Please admit your application to the email address info@noba.art by 20 April marked “residency application” and include the following in a PDF attachment:

  • Maximum one A4 page project description explaining your research project/ interests and how your project fits NOBA´s profile
  • Maximum three A4 pages portfolio or a link to your website
  • Maximum one A4 page CV

Please do not include additional attachments to your application. NOBA´s art-science residency has a process-based interdisciplinary focus, letting each artist experiment and try out new ideas without having the pressure of producing a finished work or exhibition. NOBA aims to stimulate a wider exchange of critical and philosophical ideas, research, and artistic expressions, and to share those processes with the wider public, locally, nationally, and internationally.  Residents receive a Per Diem, a travel grant, self-catering accommodation on campus, access to a workspace, and introduction to the local network of artists, students, and scientists at Vitenparken, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences NMBU, Oslo, and beyond.

The artist is expected to produce a public event sharing their artistic process and research question(s) during the residency period in collaboration with and supported by NOBA´s staff. The event can take on any format (e.g. a workshop, an artist talk, a performance, a sound piece, etc).
