UKYA Skegness Weekender: Terrain Vague



Terrain Vague is our third micro residency, and this edition is run in partnership with the So Festival.

Terrain Vague focuses on learning how we can regenerate  a place by exploring its leftovers and its use of public spaces. Artists are called to map, re-imagine and influence Skegness. Moreover the residency aims to examine the way in which we transform our surroundings to reflect and enact the utopia of our dreams.

Through the support of visiting artists, participants will investigate the meaning of contemporary ‘utopia’, as an element which can provoke the social imagination by resonating with the themes of hope and desire. This residency will critically play with ideas and practices of city planning, regeneration and ‘place-making’ and will investigate this specific  type of space and imagery, becoming a tool of visual interpretation .

Terrain Vague is programmed and curated by visual artist and curator, Chiara Dellerba. Her practice consists of researching and experimenting different situations, where she shares and rediscovers with other people: personal memories, traditions, rituals and cultures to address questions about radical aesthetics, self sufficiency, the magic relation human-Nature, the politics of food (production methods and sharing experiences), personal and public manifesto and its value in the contemporary society.
