Becoming Tree Open CallOn 29 November 2023 by Deej_Fabyc1
Be-coming Tree at Live Art Ireland.
APPLICATION DEADLINE Dec 20th
Be-coming Tree at Live Art Ireland.
Together As One Woodland.
At Milford House, Sunday 4th of February 2024 workshop 10- 1 pm Performance 3-4 pm
3 hour experiential artist workshop and documented 1 hour durational collective performance. Be-coming Tree invites artists to participate in a workshop and performance at Milford House coinciding with Imbolc festival celebrating its patron Saint Brigid. Through discussion and embodied explorations interacting with the land, trees, the house and one another, we will explore the porosity of boundaries, the frictions and intimate entanglements that manifest between ourselves, our environments and more-than-human beings. An exploration in cultivating reciprocity on all levels: inside, outside and in-between.
A collective performance will evolve, taking place in the grounds and/or house. It will create a human-bodied woodland where the audience is invited to intermingle, adding to a sense of co-existence and mutuality.
Applicants have the opportunity to apply for three options
Option 1. If you are local you are welcome to attend just on the Sunday
Option 2. Attend for the long Weekend 2nd to 5th of February
Option 3. A longer three to five week residency where you can further develop this work
Residency Includes: Each bed/Studio has an ensuite shower room. The kitchen is shared. Parts of the barns, the fields and woodlands and the fine rooms of the house are all available as places to develop live art projects and art films. We have a fast wifi network.
We can write you a letter of acceptance which can be used to apply for further funding.
Residents are encouraged to cook a meal together in the evenings at least once a week. We do not cook meat here both for the environment and because getting rid of meat waste is an issue in the countryside. You will be allocated a food cupboard and space in the fridge.
Transport: There are buses to Nenagh, Borrisokane & Portumna and trains to Cloughjordan – we can pick you up from there. We have bicycles available to ride to Lough Derg. If you have a car you are welcome to drive it here. We encourage slow travel; this means working out the most carbon efficient way of travelling here. This could mean by car if it is electric or hybrid, but generally by bus or train. If you are an artist who normally lives in a location where it would be impractical to travel overland such as North and South America, Australasia, east Asia etc we encourage you to only apply if you are already in Ireland, the UK, North Africa or mainland Europe
Accessibility: There are no ground floor bedrooms at present although there is a shower and toilet on the ground floor. The Studio bedrooms are on the second and third floor so there are stairs to them. We welcome artists who identify under the social model of disability and welcome feedback on accommodations. If you need to submit an application in an alternative format, please get in touch well before the deadline to arrange.
The curatorial panel is Deej Fabyc CEO Live Art Ireland with Becoming Tree – Jatun Risba, Daniele Minns & O Pen B

WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR FUNDING FROM THE ARTS COUNCIL OF IRELAND AND TIPPERARY ARTS OFFICE
Be-coming Tree has offered global durational eco-art events where artists from four continents engaged with their local trees and woodlands and streamed their action to a shared Zoom screen. The Live Art Ireland event will form part of Be-coming Tree’s current research into the ‘sticky materiality’ of collaborative processes, in relation to a book chapter for the proposed publication: Embodied assemblages in research and performance: a rhizomatic anthology of practice-led adventures through creative bodies, edited by Caroline Frizell and Marina Rova.
