Artist Bruno Delgado selected for art residency in Scotland
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
He engages in an interdisciplinary approach to his work, which he views as research centered around the experimental, material, and spatial aspects of cinematographic media. Delgado considers concepts such as specificity, procedure, and spatial reading to be crucial in his work and he perceives filming and projection as luminous processes that occur within particular locations and contexts. His practice takes the form of films, actions, spatial proposals and publications.
His work has been featured at exhibitions and film festivals in Rotterdam, Pesaro and Vila do Conde; exhibitions Light Field, (S8) Mostra Internacional de Cinema Periférico, Nomadica, San Francisco Cinematheque, WIELS, FRACTO, BIAU XI, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, INJUVE and BilbaoArte. With support from the Project Bank at the Institute of Culture and the Arts in Seville, in late 2020 he launched ‘kino~okno’, an initiative centred on the mechanical, photochemical, and optical roots of cinema. Together with Paula Guerrero, he recently joined Las Synergys, a collective that explores the confluence of film and live music experiences.
Delgado was chosen by the selection committee made up of Cicely Farrer (Hospitalfield), Sabrina Henry (CCA), Laida Mendia and Ane Agirre (Tabakalera). The committee assessed the project based on the following criteria: innovation and originality, project quality and creativity, project coherence, project feasibility and ability to create channels of artistic activity in the context of the Scottish residency programme.
The main objective of this programme is to provide support and assistance in the conceptual and productive field of artistic processes.
The programme sets out to establish a dedicated space for the collaborative development of various artists, stakeholders, and projects. The intention is to foster and facilitate collaborations between both resident and guest artists, thereby promoting a vibrant and dynamic creative environment. Thanks to this call, a Scottish artist will have the opportunity to participate in a residency at Tabakalera.
Bruno Delgado´s residency in Scotland will span eight weeks and be divided into two parts. In September, he will be hosted at Hospitalfield, followed by CCA Glasgow in October. This residency offers dedicated space, contextual support, and ample time for the artist to develop his artistic project.
