Selection for 'Sound of Our Cities' Project in Barcelona

Together with the Australian artist Luke Conroy I am working on a new audio project which will be presented at the 'Sounds of our Cities' event in Barcelona. This is an European project of Cultural Cooperation carried out between City of Roeselare, Dear Hunter, Aalborg University and Idensitat. It aims to explore urban areas, focusing on the locality, including local audiences and reflecting on cultural identity in relationship with the community. The central artistic activity of the project is the development of two sound art exhibitions, which will be embedded into specific sites in the urban environments. We are excited to be part of this project and work on some 'audio postcards' as part of the exhibition.

Exhibition Opening

News From Home in Russia

On the 24th of December, 2019 I was in Russia to open the exhibition 'News From Home' Petrozavodsk. This project was the work of myself and Luke Conroy and consisted of 16 collages and 38 photographs. As part of the opening there was a postcard exchange organised as part of our the project. Forty four locals from Petrozavodsk wrote a message on a postcard designed for this project.

 

These postcards will be sent to to people in 18 different countries around the world including Australia, Japan, Korea, China, Iceland, Finland, Spain, Philippines, India, The Netherlands, Russia, U.S.A, Canada and Indonesia.

Icefold Group Show

ICE FOLD /// Group exhibition at Sim Gallery in Reykjavik. 

Opening this Thursday on the 28th November from 5PM till 7PM at SIM Gallery.

For this exhibition we have chosen to experiment with creating a ‘moving postcard, to provide an insight in to Icelandic stories beyond the typical ‘tourist gaze’. Each of the scenes presented collaged photographs that the artists have captured during their stay in Iceland during November

Residency Kunsthal Viborg

I started the residency at Viborg Kunsthal in Viborg, Denmark .I'll stay here for 6 weeks. In this project I'm exploring the area of Viborg- it’s places, people and their stories. The ultimate aim of this project is to complete various ‘postcards’ which act are anti-iconic postcards. Rather than iconic images of Denmark, that the outside world or tourist is used to seeing, we want to create works based around people, stories and objects that are usually hidden.

Thursday the 19th of September I will be holding an artist talk at the Viborg Kunsthal in Viborg, Denmark. The talk will begin at 19:00 and will include a discussion of my project 'News From Home' that I have been completing during a residency in Viborg over the past 6 weeks. Event details can be found on my Instagram and Facebook pages.

Project is supported by Viborg Kunsthal and European Cultural Foundation (ECF)

News from Home on television in Russia

We held an Artist Talk about our project News from Home at the медиа-центр vыход/ media center vykhod in Petrozavodsk. We had an amazing audience and a Russian television station came to film the presentation. This presentation was a good closure for our stay at the Karelian Art Residence. We are leaving with more experiences, lots of stories and we are looking forward to come back for our exhibition in December. 

 

See here the news item of the Artist Talk about the project News from Home on the Russian television.
