Oika Spain residency

residence program at El Hondo wetland

Oika Spain has the support of the oika.com project to cover part of the costs of a creation residence in the wetland since the year 2022. This program has two modalities, the first is to invite artists and ecologists for a day to discover the wetland. The other modality aims to facilitate the residence of Oika artists in the wetland for several days. If the production of a work of art is not mandatory, the objective is to stimulate a collaboration between the wetland and the participant and create an audiovisual or performative result in any format and/or an interaction with the local community.

walking & ecotherapy artists

Elise Ashby & Stephanie Whitelaw

Stephanie Whitelaw cultiva compromisos personales con los paisajes locales, tanto físicos como digitales. Trabajando con temas de reciprocidad, explora diálogos con la naturaleza en contextos urbanos y rurales, a través de caminatas y creación de arte que responde al sitio. La ecoterapia se teje a través de sus obras participativas, construyendo espacios para una comprensión más profunda y colectiva de nuestra relación con el entorno natural.

Elise Ashby está interesada en los fundamentos del dibujo: la interacción de los materiales que dejan rastros de actividad y cómo esto refleja la relación material entre nuestros cuerpos sensoriales y nuestro entorno; Está interesada en cómo el dibujo puede explorar las cuestiones morales que encontramos sobre la base de la existencia material ahora e histórica.

As a collective, Elise Ashby & Stephanie Whitelaw, focus on ecological themes, in particular care for liminal spaces within communities and how they can activate dormant possibilities. Their practice is led by care, developing site-responsive works that seek to draw attention to the agency of living life forms. Through their work, they explore the interrelatedness of landscape through walking and the archiving of place.
