Cooking Sections, 2016 ADP laureates, presenting the installation produced during their residency at the EIB premises

The jury of the 2017 edition of the Artists’ Development Programme has selected four budding artists, out of a pool of 416 applicants, to be mentored by British artist Callum Innes during a five week residency in Luxembourg.

Katja Larsson (29, Sweden) won the thematic focus residency on ‘The Imprint of Man – Representing the Anthropocene’, Annabel Duggleby (24, UK) won the thematic focus residency on ‘Beyond Borders – Frontiers, Displacement and Dispersion in Art’. Zuzanna Golińska (26, Poland) and Nicola Rossini (25, Italy) won the geographic focus residency.

Three calls for applications were launched: one with a geographic focus, targeting two artists from Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Poland and Romania; and two calls with a thematic focus, each targeting one artist working respectively on  ‘The Imprint of Man – Representing the Anthropocene’ and ‘Beyond Borders – Frontiers, Displacement and Dispersion in Art’.

The winners will participate in a residency in Luxembourg in September/October 2017 and will also spend two days in Edinburgh visiting Callum Innes in his studio. At the end of the residency, the Institute will organise a series of events (exhibition, introduction to museums directors and collectors, and to a broader public) to promote the laureates.

Callum Innes will be the mentor of the 2017 and 2018 editions. Darren Almond, now on show with the exhibition Timescape at MUDAM (Luxembourg), was the mentor of the 2015 and 2016 editions. The mentor of the first two editions of the residency programme in 2013 and 2014 was Polish conceptual artist Mirosław Bałka.
