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
