Lívia Páldi (Ed.)
The Site Residency (TSR) was imagined as an artists’ residency that would result in no material production, a program oriented toward “the secret world of doing nothing and its consequences.” Conceptually grounded in the theories and practices of withdrawal and critical questioning of creation, materiality and objectified artistic output—artistic strategies from the 1960s and ’70s—TSR offered an escape from rigid institutional structures and gallery/studio-based production. Introduced by Lívia Páldi and with a contribution by the residency’s conceptualizer, Sebastian Cichocki, this publication presents visual and textual materials by the residency’s three participating artists, Annika Eriksson, Susanne Kriemann and Agnieszka Polska, including literary fictions by ghostwriters who translated their experiences. TSR created the opportunity for various artistic and curatorial processes, fantasies and trajectories to intersect in unique and significant ways and the design of the book follows in this spirit, allowing the thought fragments, notes, stories and poetic observations of the participants to intertwine and inviting the reader into its free-floating conversation.
