In partnership with the Barry Flanagan Foundation, Flat Time House is accepting applications for an artist’s residency to begin in November 2013.

  • Location: London, UK
  • Deadline: September 8, 2013
  • Duration: 4 Months
  • Eligibility: Open to artists who have been working professionally for 5 years
  • Costs & Support: Funding awarded to the selected artist: £2000 budget towards the production of new work, £2000 stipend & up to £350 towards travel expenses + studio & accomodation

FTHo, the former home and studio of the artist John Latham, which he designated a ‘living sculpture’, will operate as a base for interrogating sculpture as a subject of research, rather than a static artform or medium. The residency will involve time spent in the John Latham and Barry Flanagan archives.

The selected artist will be provided with accommodation, studio, stipend and a production budget towards new work. The artist will be selected from an open call, with the 4 month residency resulting in a public exhibition and publication in 2014. They are seeking applications from artists who have been working professionally for 5 years. All international applications are welcome.

The residency selection panel consists of Mike Nelson (Artist) Jo Melvin (Barry Flanagan Foundation), Claire Louise Staunton (Curator, FTHo) and Jon Wood (Research Curator, Henry Moore Institute).

The residency includes a £2000 budget towards the production of new work, a £2000 stipend and up to £350 towards travel expenses. Flat Time House will offer a self contained artist’s residence with en-suite bathroom. Adjoining kitchen facilities are shared with FTHo’s staff.

 Artists will be judged primarily on the quality of their work, but also on the potential of their practice to translate into a new body of work that re-examines the role of sculpture.
