Each year, Ohme supports five artists through artistic and technical residencies. Through this initiative, depending on the specific needs of each artist, Ohme actively supports the creation of unique research projects which are then presented to the general public. In particular, the organisation offers solid technical and scientific support for the arts and crafts, working in networks with researchers, and promoting exchanges between art, science and technology.
In collaboration with ULB departments 4MAT and CReA-Patrimoine, as well as ENSAV La Cambre, Ohme is launching a call for artists/craftspeople on the subject of medieval glassmaking. The project is rooted in Alicia Van Ham-Meert’s research in archaeology and materials science (ULB), and benefits from the support of Clémentine Vaultier, artistic assistant at the ceramics department at La Cambre.
