Artist in Residency – Fan-Ling Suen

Fan-Ling Suen is a cross-disciplinary artist from Ontario, Canada. Her
work extends across a variety of media including sculpture,
installation, drawing, photography and most recently sound. Since
working on a vegetable farm, Fan-Ling’s research has begun to expand
beyond the intimacy of interpersonal human relationships to consider our
connection with surrounding ecologies.

While in Iceland, Fan-Ling will play her musical saw in different
natural areas. She will begin to open a musical dialogue with
Skagastrond’s underground soundscapes by using a combination of
transducers and buried aquaphones in the soil to engage with the earth
as a natural amphitheater.   www.fanlingsuen.com
