ARTIST IN RESIDENCY – DANIELA GOBETTI

Image1 from the project A Life. A path of remembrance?
My name is Daniela Gobetti, I am a photographer and a bilingual poet in Italian and in English. I try explore the boundary between the visible and the non-visible, and between the unspoken and what poetry invites me to write onto the infinite white page.

Some projects bring poems and images together, but I neither take photographs thinking of a specific poem, nor write a poem to illustrate an image.
 
 
A philosopher by training (and long-lasting practice!), I am drawn to structures and abstract shapes in my attempt to ‘see’ what lies below the surface of our daily, habitual experience. 
 

Writer in Residence – Kelley McKenna

While at NES, I’ll be working on a collection of poetry and photographic images that address the shifting dynamics in the female body when hormonal fluctuations begin to alter a once known entity–one’s own self–into something unrecognizable. Transformations in the natural world that happen on a daily basis in extreme climates and geographies like Iceland, and transformations happening because of what we’re doing to our beautiful planet, mirror what I’m experiencing in my own aging process: a transmutation of the body and a cataclysm of heat creating a violent expulsion of a former self. It feels like devastation.
