The Victorian Regional Artist Residency is an annual opportunity from Chunky Move and Warrnambool Art Gallery for individual artists or collectives residing in Victoria who have a minimum of 3 years professional experience. The aims of the residency are: to engage people with contemporary art and performance across Warrnambool and Melbourne; to propose new ways of thinking about what movement is and the role of movement artists in society; to connect artists and their practice and with the Warrnambool community. Artists are supported with a $4500 artist fee, $500 materials budget , technical support and in-kind studio space for the residency period.
Atlanta will spend her residency developing a new work with dance and video. With the support of Creative New Zealand (CNZ), she will work with video artists Hana Miller and Jacob Perkins of RDYSTDY to question: Where is the surface of a dance? How does the dissonance between the seeing and feeling of the physical body program new pathways?
Experimenting with her interior and exterior interfaces, she will explore where thresholds begin and end within and beyond the limitations of the dancing body.
