Students of HKU Fine Art prepare themselves for an artist’s life. But what does the professional practice look like? To get a better picture of what this means, the academic year 2021-2022 will see the start of a remarkable project: an artist in residence at the School.
Within the academy’s curriculum, HKU wants to emphasise that the ‘thinking’ must be directed by the adventure of ‘making’. From this idea came the desire to have an inspiring professional artist who is visibly working at the school premises. Someone who makes you a part and witness of their creative process, answer your questions and teaches you in multiple ways while, in contrast to the regular lecturers, they are not responsible for assessing and grading you.
A residency at the School
From 2021 onwards, an artist is invited every year to work in an art studio at HKU Pastoe Factory for a period of three days. In this art studio, the artist in residence works on the development of their own fine art.
Keep An Eye Pastoe offers not only the opportunity for Fine Art students to talk with professional artists about their work, but to actually see them in action at their art studio or workplace. The project is concluded with an exposition and a publication.
The selected artists have been announced: they are the duo Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen. They will be working at Pastoe Fabriek from September onwards.
