2. Pastoral Land in Clermont in the US
Residency 108 particularly welcomes artists who work with nature, ecology and landscape
The programme takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. The residency is located in a remote area without public transportation.
This programme is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilisation” this may not be the programme for you.
