Job Description & Person Specification:

Obsidian Coast invites proposals from UK based artists and artist collaborations to produce a moving image project for a solo exhibition at Obsidian Coast in autumn 2020. 

Sitting on the edge of our conceptual Coast*, ahead spans a curve of blue on blue. Constituting the circular parameter that determines the social, political and material conditions of our existence, horizons are boundaries that cannot be crossed and command realms of possibility. Bound to remain obscure, they pull us towards them as they infinitely recede. Horizons open up and close off, and encapsulate the remains and material imprints of times past. But rather than only representing the absolute, horizons are also malleable and contingent, and have embedded in them the potential of rupture. Gazing at the view of our horizon from the Coast, we invite you to think past the foreseeable and expand the parameters of the possible. 

Obsidian Coast is a project space in Bradford-on- Avon, South West England. The space is a curatorial and artistic platform, and an ongoing experiment searching for new ways to live, work and build long-term friendships. The Coast is a site on a collaborative map, a waypoint for counter-hegemonic practice. Hosting this commission is therefore not only about the production of a new artistic project, but also about instituting specific conditions and social dynamics under which we think and work together. With creative and artistic autonomy, the recipient of the commission will also share our values of openness and partnership. We are looking for artists with sustained interest in moving image and an aspiration to challenge established methodologies of film creation and exhibition. 

* Obsidian Coast is, in fact, situated inland on the River Avon, Wiltshire. 
We can at least try. 

What we will offer
The moving image commission will be presented as a solo exhibition at Obsidian Coast from October December 2020. Obsidian Coast offers a budget of 3,000 for the production of the commission. An additional budget will be offered towards the costs of the exhibition.
