Notes from Skagaströnd A small collection of two minute compositions made by artist Andrew Weir during his time at the NES Artist Residency in January and February 2016. All the works are made solely from field recordings taken during the day and then processed, composed, mixed and mastered on the same day. Click on the image to be taken to the Bandcamp site.

56th Venice Biennale
We are sending very big congratulations to two of our 2009 Nes artists who are exhibiting at the 56th Venice Biennale.
Sean Lynch is representing Ireland with his work Adventure: Capital, 2014–15. Sean and his partner Michelle Horrigan were both here in 2009 and Michelle is the producer of the artwork for the Pavillion. You can find out more about the work here.
Alec Von Bargen also here in 2009 is part of the Swatch Faces at the Venice Biennale and exhibiting this fabulous work ‘Man, Forgotten’ shot while he was here in Iceland. You can find out more about the work here.
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
Sarah Nance (Nes artist 2013) currently exhibiting ‘the rush of land in my ears’ a site responsive installation at the Peoria Guild gallery. Simply stunning work!
Jérémy Pailler has exhibited at the Lighthouse in Limoges France and some of the works exhibited are those he created here in Skagaströnd.
Former Nes artist, Renata De Bonis who in a house about to be demolished, presents an exhibition in which the building itself is the work on show.
Artist Juan Diego Perez la Cruz exhibited work, at the Museo de artes graficas Luis Chacon (Luis Chacon’s graphic art museum ) in Maracaibo which was created whilst at Nes in November 2013.
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.
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.
