Kép Klub - Mixer Residency - D'Clinic studios

D'Clinic Residency - Outcome

The Mixer residency has come to an end.
We made an artist book to document all of our projects with before and after pictures! -> Artist Book



KÉP KLUB is an international group of uniformed ‘art workers’ who first formed in Zalaegerszeg, Hungary. The three artists: Amy Ritter (US), Kieran Butler (AU), and Rob Burton (UK), use expanded drawing, photographic and installation practices to create site responsive, often public, artworks in the context(s) they fine themselves in. Adopting a methodology of collecting images and stories KÉP KLUB works to question the role of the contemporary artist and audience. Who is the ‘art worker’, and what value does a community assign them, and how can they collaborate (or work together).


KÉP KLUB invited the people of Zalaegerszeg to donate a space or object of their choosing. Surfaces included, but were not limited to, walls, garage doors, fences or objects such as a bicycle or an item of clothing. After a site visit and interview the artists design colors and imagery specific to the individual or family in their own artistic style. In this way KÉP KLUB becomes not only a collaboration between the three artists, but also a collaboration with the community. In an attempt to understand this unknown environment, the artist create a new connection with the places and people they meet.

We were interviewed by D'Clinic ->  Kép Klub Interview


We were also on Zalaegerszeg's local news!!!! Fast forward to 18:20


This was a successful and worth while collaborative residency for me. I met so many amazing people and made life long friends. Kép Klub hopes to continue this project in other cities to continue the work and invite other artists to get involved.


D' Clinic Residency - Kép Klub Week 2

We heard back from the people of Zalaegerszeg!

Our first job was working with Szilvia who has an extremely adorable home on top of a hill and she let us design her garage doors.

AFTER

STREET VIEW

She simply wanted us to make the garage doors happy and inviting. So I photographed things around the yard (Rocks, mothers vintage mugs, neighborhood cat, flowers, and figs) :) This was a great first project!



Zalaegerszeg Week 1 

Call us Kép Klub!



This poster roughly translates: We want to meet you! We will paint a space of your choosing for FREE! Kép Klub means Image club and we are 3 ( 3 artist, from 3 continnents, 3 dif. art practices) Then at the bottom it says for more information places take one. We have rip offs at the bottom with our e-mail and website. Kepklub@gmail.com and KepKlub is our website!

We are advertising to the city but its proven to be difficult because you have to pay to post your posters around town. Instead we've been asking store owners to display them in their windows and handing out little flyers to all the people we see and meet. :) 

We began a collaboration mural in the studio waiting to hear from the public.....
