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.”

Yam is a designer and artist based in Jerusalem. In her works she integrates illustration, animation and graphic design.

She is passionate about interactive installations and always trying to search for wonderment. She enjoys being playful and exploring new technologies and is feeling uneasy about climate change (yet optimistic!)”

Artist in Residence – André Rösler

My work is all about drawing, toggling between abstraction and figurative narration. 
 
I’m interested in unstable Constellations, the seismographic quality of the drawing and the power of failure.
 
 
 
 
 
 
My intention for my stay in Skagastrond was to stare at the sea. I love the barren seclusion of the place, the breathtaking nature and the dynamic that emerges in a group of very different artists.
 
I work here on the basic elements of my aesthetic practice. I try to sort and expand my drawing vocabulary. I stare at the sea, now and then I jump in.
