The PlantageDok Artist Residency is an exciting opportunity to be part of an artist-led community in the city of Amsterdam, providing time and space to work, experiment, develop and present your practice. Offering a bedroom and an opportunity to use a shared kitchen and bathroom as well as a working studio. The program is open to visual and performance artists, designers, researchers and writers for a period between 2-6 months. Situated in a historical building with an eco roof terrace in the center of the city, which houses a community of artists, the artist in residence is offered time, resources and connections. The building operates two public spaces with changing events: the Dok Café and the Dok Zaal. The complex is located in the historical east of Amsterdam, near the Artis Zoo, near public transport and many shops and restaurants around the corner.

Julija Skudutyte

  A short text about my work:

 I’m Julija Skudutytė, an artist from Vilnius, Lithuania. I work mostly with watercolor medium. In my works I delve into the interplay between humans and everyday objects, exploring the significance we attach to items, from an expression of identity to nostalgia. I search for the paradoxes where worthlessness and usefulness intertwine and spirituality and consumerism meet. My exploration extends beyond mere objects, it delves into my own identity as well, exploring my materiality and usefulness. This leads to artworks depicting trash as beings and portraying humans as mere objects. If you’re interested in seeing my work, you can visit my Instagram @colorforwater or my webpage
