Our Artists briefly:

 … Merete Røstad is an interdisciplinary artist, and has worked with farms in the area for particular photographs, her work is coming to a close at Nes, as she leaves this month. http://www.mereterostad.com/
 … Alexandra Häberli is a painter and collage artist creating new distorted worlds painted on the walls inside of Nes. Alex leaves us this month also, and will sadly erase the very worlds she created with white paint after our open house.

 … Absent artists Sharlene Bamboat and Alexis Mitchell were here in April also but have very busy schedules with projects in Canada that they have gone back to work on. We wish them all the best and hope Nes and Skagaströnd filter into their future works.

ICELAND SOUNDSCAPE

Drew Krasner started the creative process for this album when he was here at Nes. The scenery and sounds of Skagaströnd have greatly influenced the music. Whilst here he teamed up with another great artist Jérémy Pailler, wonderful illustrator and animator who has created the imagery that is part of this production. Please support their Kickstarter project if you can, as little as $10 will help bring Drew and his team here for an Icelandic tour. Feel free to share this around. https://www.kickstarter.com/…/96796…/iceland-soundscape-trio

Nes Studios

NES operates an open plan shared studio,  located in  the old fish factory. The main area is approximately 16x11metres and is divided into 10-12 spaces.

studio5

Nes is currently operating a solo studio space out of the former “Freezer” approximately 8×5.5metres; it is an extremely versatile space. It can be reserved by artists on a daily basis, and also used for exhibitions. It is a particularly good space for projection or light based work (once closed, it’s almost completely dark) as well as brainstorming installations and performances. Artists have used The Freezer for performances, sound installation, sculpture, and meetings.

A modest selection of tools are available in the studio’s storeroom, including a couple of easels, drills, saws, a jigsaw and basic tools like hammers, pliers and screw drivers.  We also have a small room of odds and ends that people have left behind that may be used by all residents. Art materials are best brought with you, however.

In addition to the workspace and storeroom, the Nes studio also has a kitchen, WC, and small library.
