The Cultural Office of the French Embassy in New Zealand and Auckland University of Technology have launched the residency programme in 2015. It allows for a French creative practitioner to be hosted at Colab in Auckland in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The residency enables the development of new initiatives and joint collaborations. It allows a French creative professional to come to New Zealand for a period of 3 months and includes international return airfares, accommodation and a stipend of NZ$1000 per week.

We welcome applicants from art, design or engineering backgrounds, who demonstrate a strong engagement in new media and hybrid practices, working in emergent areas using creative technologies.

Digital and new media have been thriving in France in recent years with internationally recognized creative people actively seeking new international connections, as well as a vibrant ecosystem with dedicated venues and festivals acting as place of hybridization between disciplines, technologies and audiences. This residency programme will enable the development of new relations and collaborations with New Zealand practitioners and researchers.

Raphaël Pluvinage and Marion Pinaffo, both graduates from one of the premier art and design schools in France, ENSCI Les-Ateliers, will take part in the inaugural Te Ataata residency programme from September to November.

Their research will focus on the development of printed electronic toys and interactive art, topics they have previously worked on through their design company Papier Machine.

Raphaël and Marion’s goal is to make electronics more visible, to demonstrate the basic principles of how they operate and how people engage with them. While in residence, the laureates will work with interactive materials and printed electronics to develop a public exhibition, collaborating with Colab’s academic and research communities.

Raphaël Pluvinage, recently graduated from ENSCI Les-Ateliers (Paris), is an artist and designer at Superflux (London), an active member of La Paillasse (Paris), and a teacher for the seminar ‘interactive materials’ at ENSCI Les-Ateliers. His work has been exhibited at La Gaité Lyrique (Paris) and La biennale du design (St Etienne).

Marion Pinaffo is a designer, also graduated from ENSCI Les-Ateliers, and from ENSAAMA Oliver de Serres. She works as a freelance product designer for the Doshi-Levien studio (London). Her works have been exhibited at  La biennale du design, at the “Sunny Memories” EPFL exhibit (Lausanne, Paris, New-York, Berlin) and at the Futur en Seine show in Paris.

Te Ataata Residency is a joint initiative of Colab, AUT and the French Embassy in New Zealand, with the support of Institut français.
