Artist in Residence
Petömihàlifa / Hungary
Krinzinger Projekte launched its Artist in Residence programme in Petömihályfa (Hungary) in 2010. Following an intense research phase including diploma exhibition and studio visits the selection of artists was made by an international jury on suggestions submitted by Austrian university professors and Hungarian curators.
The Hungarian artists Diána Keller, Henrik Martin, Klára Petra Szabó, Hajnalka Tarr and Zsolt Tibor received a residency for 2010. From the Austrian side Eva Chytilek, Rosmarie Lukasser and Linus Riepler participated. The possibility of a residency in Petömihályfa 2011 was given to Kamen Stoyanov, Steven Guermeur, Markus Hanakam & Roswitha Schuller, István Csákány, Steffi Alte, Nicola Brunnhuber and Tamás Kaszás.
The studios in Petömihályfa are located in the idyllic landscape of Western Hungary. Far away from the hustle and bustle of the city and all of its distractions a space was created for focusing on artistic work. The natural environment is largely governed by the rhythm of life at the residency and offers a possibility to focus on the essential. The Galerie Krinzinger’s studios in Petömihályfa provide a setting for encounters between Hungarian and Austrian artists. The promotion and activation of exchanges between international contemporary artists has top priority, but another goal is networking with the public interested in art.
