Victoria Papagni from Argentina, Buenos Aires, born in 1991 is a Transdisciplinary Artist.
I work with new media and post-internet digital culture which I display in multiple formats and disciplines such as video installation, 3D technology, performance, and sound.
I attend the postgraduate Cinema Program at Torcuato Di Tella University and I am a graduated Electronic Artist at 3 de Febrero National University. I obtained the 2nd Prize of the 108th National Prize of Visual Arts in Installations and Alternative Media; I received the Stimulus Award in Object and Installation Essays from the National Endowment for the Arts and obtained the 2nd Prize “Projecto A Arte Contemporaneo” on its 15th and last edition. My most recent solo show was Monumental Fiction at the General San Martín Cultural Center and at the Carvoca National Museum. I exhibited my work in the main Museums, Cultural Institutions, and Galleries nationwide and internationally such as The Wrong- Art Digital Biennale, video festivals, among others.
I am a Professor in Electronic Arts Degree at the 3 de Febrero National University.
tobibienz grew up in a puppet theater in Switzerland. tobi works in the fields of performance arts, music, and theater. tobi studied classical guitar and acting, but left the university for the creation of the performance art projects "baushtelle.org" and "prishtinë - mon amour" in Kosovo and Serbia. tobi created works in Hongkong, China, Burkina Faso, Kosovo, Italy, and Serbia. tobi fell in love with a cockroach on the rooftop of a skyscraper during the protests in Hong Kong. tobi is part of the blaublau collective based in Zurich, Switzerland - during lockdown they created the web portal kapsel.space and produced video art with music and performance art.
Born in 1996 in Nogent-sur-Marne, a city near Paris, Solène Charton graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure d'art of Bourges in 2020. Her work explores electronic elsewheres, those other places accessible through technical media and especially the internet.
By operating conceptual and aesthetic comings and goings, on both sides of media screens, her work questions the dialectic between "virtual space" and "real space". This semantic frontier becomes porous as the artist addresses the political aspects of the internet, considered as a social and militant space.
The different artworks then appear as many interrelated narratives of an "augmented reality", where the structural social characteristics of the real are intertwined in the strange ubiquity of mediality. For the artist, science fiction serves as an essential speculative link between these ecological, social, and militant reflections.
Irina Demina is a choreographer and dance artist, based in Berlin. Irina made her dance education in Moscow and Hamburg, graduated from Moscow State Lomonosov University (Faculty of Philology), and received a Master's degree in Choreography at Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin (HZT). As a dancer, she worked with choreographers Xavier le Roy, Angela Guerreiro, Soodong Jung, Jessica Nupen, Halla Olafsdottir, etc. Since 2008 she has been developing her own choreographic projects and works as a dance artist worldwide. For her performances and choreographies, Irina has received national and international awards. On behalf of various institutions, Irina was invited to choreographic residencies in Germany, South Korea, Norway, Spain, Hungary, Russia, etc.
Her work is inspired by experimentation with body fictions, dancing on the edges between fiction and reality, tradition and innovation, seduction and repulsion, (unknown) past and (uncertain) future

OPEN CALL/ Creation Residency
YET TO .COM(E)
Calling for artists based in Argentina, Iran, USA, France, Switzerland, and Germany. Open to all artistic disciplines that wish to engage in a virtual residency.
YET TO .COM(E) invites six interdisciplinary artists to collaborate in artistic dialogue and practice with another artist. The program establishes three distinctive virtual residency incubators where two artists can live, brainstorm, and dream about a common future through their unique artistic lenses.
In this current pandemic, we are left with a tension of global and local concerns. The present feels dystopian. The future is unknown. As such, YET TO .COM(E) believes that sharing a virtual creation space is needed to transgress individual isolation. In spite of all the challenges we face today, YET TO .COM(E) seeks to break down artistic barriers by playfully and experimentally engaging in the digital sphere.
YET TO .COM(E) is made possible by the international partners, Espace Croisé (FR), LODO (ARG), Work it Out (CH/DE), and Re-Connect Online Performance Festival (Internet). All four partners are engaged in digital and physical performance activities. Their curatorial practice is shaped by working in proximity over distance: fostering a sharing of resources as well as collectively devising intercultural and interdisciplinary methods for participatory interventions.
Each artist is applying with an individual proposal for the virtual residency (-> see information below). Based on this proposal, interviews will be held with the first round of pre-selected artists. Next, the curatorial partners will select six artists to be coupled up in three collaboration teams based on their field of practice and artistic motivation in the virtual residency. Each team will collaborate on a mutual proposal.
Terms and Conditions
700 euros are given to each of the six selected artists as compensation.
The residencies take place between January 2021 - April 2021 (time frame agreed upon availability and need of the collaboration teams).
The coupled artists will be provided with adequate virtual resources to facilitate the exchange and mentoring by the partners during the process of the virtual residency.
The coupled artists are expected to meet virtually on a regular basis.
During the creation process, the partners will make the artists’ work available to the public in different virtual formats (e.g. insights, interventions, interviews, and broadcasted studio visits).
Each residency will lead to an outcome. The form of the outcome is generated by the individual discipline of the two artists, their common project, and the partners (e.g. online performance project, installation, live lecture-performance, etc.).
All four partners will strive to feature, promote, and distribute the artists’ projects at different possible levels (e.g. online festivals, extended residencies, and virtual/physical exhibitions).
So far it is confirmed that all the outcomes will be directly introduced to:
Re-Connect Online Performance Festival, April 2021
Lodo Festival, 2021
Espace Croisé, activities 2021
Work it Out, activities 2021
Motivation Letter (1000 words)
Short Bio (200 words)
