ARTISTIC RESIDENCY for the Macedonian visual artists Ana Lazarevska in the artistic association 2angles in Flers, Normandy – France 13 June – 02 July 2016

From 2013, Lokomotiva coordinates artistic exchange programme that enables and supports residences of French artists and art groups in Macedonia and vice – versa as well as collaboration between Macedonian and French cultural actors and institutions.

Within this programme, Lokomotiva continues the collaboration established with the artistic association 2angles in 2015.

Created in 2003, 2angles is an artistic association with a mission to promote the visual arts and contemporary dance. In 2010, 2angles becomes one of the 5 Regional Relais culturel in the Region Lower Normandy. Located in old former dry cleaner’s bulling of 400 m2, 2angles dispose with three exhibition spaces, studios for artists in resident, a documentation centre, and an art library (artothèque). The association also has a dance space and a rehearsal studio available free of charge by the city of Flers for the artists in resident programme.
2angles is a place of creation open to artists, a place of experimentation, meetings and exchanges. It is a bridge towards outside that connects artists, the city and public.

For the second year in a row, 2angles provides residency for Macedonian visual artists. This year the Artistic Board of 2angles, led by Jerome Letinturie – director and curator of visual arts programme, selected Ana Lazarevska as artist in residence.

With this residence Lazarevska will start an artistic research for her new art work inspired by the form(s) in its complex appearance and composition, viewed by metaphysical and scientific aspects, and (re)interpreted in art work.

At the end of the residency Lazarevska will have a public presentation of her work in 2angles, in font of the artistic community and the general public in Flers.

The residency is financially supported by the Region Lower Normandy and 2angles.
