The artist’s residency is recognised as an opportunity for practitioners of different kinds to experience new environments that often provide the impetus for new work, or a fresh engagement with an ongoing project.
Northern Residency will present 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.
