Residency Far Away So Close (RFASC) is a program for encouraging collaborations between the regional art scene of Skåne and international, professional curators. Through recommendations, selected curators are invited to RFASC to produce an exhibition within the standard parameters and program of an art institution. RFASC aims to create a practical setting for the curator in which to realize their work and to provide a platform for investigating the nature of collaborations between institutions and freelance curators. In 2010 RFASC invited curators Sonia Dermience and Dorothea Jendricke, who collaborate with Ystads Konstmuseum and Malmö Konsthall.

“Throwing Three Balls in the Air to Get a Straight Line” is the delightfully playful title of a 1973 work by John Baldessari in which the artist repeatedly documents his attempt to toss—with geometrical precision—three balls as high as possible in the air. With very simple means Baldessari manages to call into question various aspects of the conceptual artistic process. For the absurd poetry of this undertaking humorously implies a self-aware approach to reflecting upon the conceptual and pictorial dimensions of a work. The exhibition at Malmö Konsthall, which borrows its title from Baldessari’s work, brings together six artists: Simon Denny, Mario Garcia Torres, Thomas Kratz, Falke Pisano, Ryan Siegan-Smith, and a work by John Baldessari.

The works presented here form a loose dialogue that takes a look at this visibly discursive process of reconciling the parameters of one’s own medium in various ways. This focus is on ideas generated from ideas—ones that, from time to time, reveal their own conditionality in direct ways, and, in doing so, cast historical positions in a new light.

“Y-The Black Issue” is looking for new collaborative processes in publishing and exhibition making. The publication is a script for the exhibition motivated by the desire to combat the darkness and cold through the gathering of fragments of conversations, poetry and images about SAD (seasonal affective disorder), melancholy, northern lights, weather, countryside or second residencies.
