About

The biennial artists' residency in Sarvisalo this year focuses on painting, inviting four artists with varying approaches to the medium to explore and develop their practice in this unique setting.

Since 2010 the Collection has been inviting international artists to the island to undertake residencies as an alternative way of supporting artists, giving them the time and space to think and create freely, without the immediate pressure of exhibition-making. Spending anywhere from a week to a month on the residency, many of the artists use their time here to produce site-responsive works, while others have proposed projects to be realised in the future.
