The Edition Residencies is a collaborative project by four artist friends Caitlin Akers, Nora Schmel, Klara Vith and Lena Wurz, connected by London but currently living and working in different cities. The project was formed in 2017 over 2-4-1 cocktails in the Peckham Pelican.

The aim of the project was to create an artist residency that could take us to one another’s hometowns so that we might respond to these visits in a playful and spontaneous way and create new work together.

With each residency, we react to the location and the conversations that we have had. We set tasks for one another and then these become part of the themes that we work with. Time constraints and facilities at hand decide what form our work will take.

The residency has a fluid approach and we are collaborating with other artist friends with each new project.
