The artist’s residency is an opportunity to experience new place that provide the impetus for new work or a fresh engagement with an ongoing project. These experiences can be both stimulating and difficult: an unfamiliar location is encountered through a habitual lens that is hard to shake off.
We will show work made during two residencies in the far north of Norway and Sweden and explore the relationship between affective engagement, geographical location and experiential dislocation in relation to forms of creative practice.
