Artist in Residence – Sarah Flynn

‘I am interested in the relationship between how Iceland is perceived from an outsider and how the Icelandic identify themselves and their country, as well as the role that photography plays in cultivating the image of Iceland.
In response to the romantic image of Iceland, I am focusing on the familiar and the banal. I am drawn towards simple shapes, patterns and events within the landscape which often go unnoticed.
This project offers an alternative representation of Iceland (from the perspective of an outsider) which goes beyond the clichéd images often used as propaganda in tourist brochures.’
