Announcing the 2015 Winter Resident

If you have trouble reading this email click here

October 31, 2014: ArtSlant is very pleased to announce the Winter 2015 resident, Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist, Brett Day Windham. Brett will take up residence in Paris January and February, 2015. Brett was selected from a large pool of very talented artists and writers spanning many disciplines. Shortlisted artists and writers were selected to participate in interviews with our selection panel before a consensus was reached. 

The Georgia Fee Artist | Writer Residency is a biannual, two month residency in the beautiful Montparnasse neighborhood of Paris. During these two months, the resident will have studio visits with prominent Parisian arts professionals provided by our strategic partner, Residency Unlimited. 

More information on the Georgia Fee Artist | Writer Residency.

 


Artist Bio:
 Brett Day Windham (b. Cambridge, England)  is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She received a BFA from Hampshire College and an MFA in Sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been included in shows around the US, including The Chace Center at the RISD Museum (Providence), Tompkins Projects West (Los Angeles), Cave (Detroit), Lu Magnus (NY), Brooklyn Fireproof (NY), Gallery Project (Ann Arbor), 808 Gallery (Boston), Samsøn Projects (Boston), University of Maine Museum of Art (Bangor), and RMCAD (Denver). Windham received a Dean’s fellowship while at RISD, and was nominated for the Joan Mitchell MFA Grant that same year. Residencies she has attended include The Select Fair Residency in 2014 (New York), The Chrysler Museum Glass Studio in 2013 (Norfolk, Virginia), Cascina Remondenca in 2009 (Chiaverano, Italy), TSKW in 2010 (Key West, Florida), and Penland in 2005 (Penland, North Carolina). Her work has been discussed in Hyperallergic, The New York Times, Whitewall Magazine, Her Royal Majesty and The Bangor Daily News. In her work, she uses color and composition to organize industrial remnants and refuse to resurrect feelings of mysticism, magic, and ritual. She is thrilled to be the the Georgia Fee Winter Resident.

 

The Project:


For the Georgia Fee Winter Residency, I will be embarking on a series of daily walks through Paris. Some walks are solitary. Other walks are collaborative, a duet that includes another artist, writer, musician or critic. Found objects will be collected while walking, and then used as the components for an assembled sculpture. I will also keep a blog that maps the path taken, records each collaborator and includes photographs from each walk. Photographs of all the objects collected at the end of each walk are included as well, and used as fodder for collages and a zine.

One important reference for the project is the rich history of the flâneur, the leisurely strolling dandy, as a "modern" late 19th century citizen. (I will specifically reference Walter Benjamin’s Arcades Project; a taxonomy of anecdotes organized around the poetry of Charles Baudelaire, identifying the fin-de-siècle Parisian Arcades as the site of commodification and as evidence of modern times. He positions the Arcades as the ultimate haunt for this louche Parisian character, whom I shall re-position as female).

Walking through Paris alone and with different partners, collecting found objects for an installation and resurrecting the specter of the flâneur will serve as an aesthetic anthropological study; and as a survey of what a community accumulates and abandons. I am interested equally in the arcades, the alleyways, the cracks in the sidewalk, and the magic that comes from the unexpected discoveries therein.
