Landscape : Islands (Residency)
Brighton Digital Festival 2016, Phoenix Brighton
The Landscape : Islands project continues with an exhibition of the results of our first ever international collaborative residency programme at Phoenix Brighton, which brings together sound and ceramic artists to work alongside each other to create a new body of work in response to a set theme. In this case, an exploration of landscape and cultural identity. The invited artist duos are Anne Lykke (Denmark – ceramics) & Mike Blow (UK – sound) and Ingibjörg Guðmundsdóttir (Iceland – ceramics) & Iris Garrelfs (UK/Germany – sound).
The ceramic artists are staying at The Ceramic House for a month and are leading the creative process, partly due to the practicalities of the ceramic making process which is labour and time-intensive, whereas sound making is more ephemeral and can adapt itself to many different contexts. The sound artists are therefore visiting the ceramics studio on a regular basis and responding to the work-in-progress as it develops. The exhibition will open on Sept 1st at Phoenix Brighton.
In A Shetland Landscape
Brighton Digital Festival 2016
‘In A Shetland Landscape’ was created during a month-long residency at Scalloway Booth in the Shetland Isles by Joseph Young (sound) and Kay Aplin (ceramics) and premiered at Shetland Museum in April 2016. The work of Aplin and Young sets the context for the rest of Landscape : Islands project, offering their collaboration as a model for further craft/digital investigations.
This version of the work at In Camera is adapted to the demands of the smaller space. An album of soundscapes has been released as a digital download by Green Field Recordings and will be available on CD as part of the catalogue, published on Sept 16th
The exhibition launches with performances on Sept 2nd.
