Artist Residencies have existed the world over for more then a century. Initially developed and founded by art-loving benefactors and patrons, these unique and diverse opportunities for artists continue to play a pivotal role in supporting creative practices of all kinds.
Fascinated by the challenge of sustaining a contemporary studio practice and maintaining a sense of connection and community; Peck has begun a project that explores the residency as a source of inspiration and support for a wide variety of individual artistic practices.
“Zeleny Les” is Peck’s first video in a series which will examine several artist residencies in intimate detail. Shot over the course of a weeklong session at a small residency in upstate New York, this piece features interviews with participating artists, the residency director, and documentation of many projects begun, completed, or conceptualized over the course of the residency.
