Artist in Residence – Yam Matarasso

“in Skagastrond I played, I loved, I got lost and changed. I definitely didn’t expect to have such a meaningful time. Iceland for me is an unbelievable place with such different rules of nature that are as far as can be from my home country Israel. 

Here, the clouds are low, the light is changing constantly, the air is cold, and the trees are replaced by infinite fields of grass and stone.

The residency was for me a time of contemplation and I loved being surrounded by such an amazing group of fellow artists.”
