Artist in Residence – Daniel Barclay

During the month of October, NES artist in residence Daniel Barclay (Lima, 1972), will be working a project reflecting on the contrast between the real and the virtual in a post-truth world.

The landscape of Skagastrond and Iceland will serve as a context for a series of juxtapozed painted images. Daniel lives in São Paulo and works between São Paulo and Lima.

Artist in Residence – Alia Malley

Alia Malley is at NES with collaborator, editor Noah Herzog to complete post production on her video project, the Logic of Events.

Started on her Arctic Circle residency, the 3-channel projection installation continues her work based on the roles and expectations of landscape, representation, human geography, technology, and the instability of the power structures inherent within those relationships.

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

 

Japanese papermaking – Japönsk pappírsgerð

In December last year we had the privilege to host Tatiana Ginsberg here at Nes. She is papermaker and specializes in traditional Japanese papermaking.
