Description of Residency
The Metamorphosis series of residencies is conceived of as a regenerative development following on from the success of the first residency programmes at ArtFunkl. It is aimed at artists who are enthusiastic about working within the Manchester environment, and who are energetic about making connections in this context.
Metamorphosis 02 residency is an opportunity for artists to confront new ideas, or experiment with their work, unrestricted by any formal or commercial considerations, over a 6 week duration. This is regarded as a period of exploration, without any pressure, with a completely open brief for how the work should be shown at the end of the residency.

The aim of the Metamorphosis Residency is to allow artists to absorb and use this dynamic, while reviewing their past thinking, and experimenting beyond what they have already achieved.

Description of Residency
ArtFunkl is looking for adventurous, enthusiastic people who would like to visit Manchester during the pre-Christmas season, and experience the city at a time when there is an intense amount of activity, both in the Art World, and in the social scene in general.
Metamorphosis 01 residency is an opportunity for artists to confront new ideas, or regeneration of their work over a 6 week duration. This is regarded as a period of exploration without any pressure, with a completely open brief for how the work should be shown at the end of the residency.
Towards the end of the year there is a vibrant energy in Manchester; people conclude projects they have been working on over the year, and come to points of pause as the New Year approaches. The aim of the Metamorphosis Residency is to allow artists to absorb and use this dynamic, while reviewing their past thinking, and experimenting beyond what they have already achieved.

Residency Morphallaxis 05: 6 weeks from 14 Jul 2011 Residency Morphallaxis 06: 6 weeks from 30 Aug 2011
2 private rooms and 2 studios in a flexible, shared space are available, in a spacious house situated on the edge of the city centre of Manchester. The living accommodation of the house provides potential for many types of Art based activities to take place such as discussions, film screenings and social events.
The Morphallaxis series of 6 week long artist residencies has been devised as a means to progress ideas inaugurated in previous projects, both those related to the artist's personal practice, and those which have emerged through the ArtFunkl programme.
The main focus of this residency programme is to explore the use of the ArtFunkl concept, both as a venue for producing and exhibiting work, and as a source for generating projects elsewhere in the city of Manchester and its vicinity.
Previous artists in residence have employed specific attitudes towards the cultural, historical and creative structures of Manchester, and used these as generating factors. This has resulted in work which has a resonance to the surroundings, and connects with the practices of other artists in the area. ArtFunkl's aim with the Morphallaxis programme is to uncover, re-invent, and re-imagine artistic practice, relevant to the contemporary debate regarding Visual Art in the Manchester context.
These 6 week residencies are designed to allow artists:
space and time to work on their own project. show their work during the final week of the residency be involved in devising and constructing the exhibition space for their show be actively involved in making contacts and promoting the exhibition. have the opportunity to host gatherings or social events at the venue support in realizing the above
