Sammanfattning
Artists, writers and various creative practitioners can apply for allowances, grants and stays at residencies in different lengths. These accommodations provides opportunities for short term cultural exchange between participants, host and their culture, while providing possibilities for individual creative development and networking. Contemporary residencies are diverse and unique in their setting, profile and prescribed outcome. We see tendencies of various forms of residencies providing dwelling and studio space having been allocated in peripheral areas since the early art colonies to this day, where contemporary residencies witness of a potential greater public interest in escaping modern commodification. There are no artist residencies in Halland today, although the characteristic lowland along the coastal line of Halland demonstrates peripheral peculiarities with much desirable qualities for established and emerging artists seeking for change of scenery, cultural exchange or temporary withdrawal. But in peripheral regions where natural phenomenas constitute the greater part of the immediate surroundings, human activities are easily overlooked. The thesis aims to explore how a residence providing temporary withdrawal and cultural exchange between parts can materialise in a peripheral context, without undermining a place identity that individuals and groups orient themselves towards and in relation to. The thesis includes a design proposal driven by a research by design methodology that explores how a peripheral artist residence in the light of increasing diversification of residency models can take expression and benefit from the cultural exchange in the specific peripheral context of Galtabäcks hamn, situated south of Varberg.
