Pro Helvetia’s (PHND) three-month studio residencies – open to artists and art practitioners from South Asia and Switzerland – help artists find inspiration, establish networks and contemplate new projects. As part of the process of inviting applications and announcing winners, we worked on the messaging and visuals for three successive years with each year’s look being as different as charcoal and clay. The first year saw us tearing up older pieces of PHND publications to use as collage, while the second one was all about black and white pencil sketches. And for the third year we explored the three dimensions by trying out something with modelling clay. Scroll down to read more.
