    Spain / UK,  Performance and Visual Art

    Shakti Gomez is a performance and a visual artist, originally from Spain, who has  worked at the fringe of different disciplines, especially live art, visual arts and dance. She explores human anxiety, mortality and the relation between the self and the other; the inter-experience. These ideas inform her work which often has an autobiographical element or follows the biographies of others that she encounters in life. Her work is also linked to everyday life and banal objects that, through her performances, are extended beyond their usual meanings,  transforming them into singular objects that can represent a person’s inner state or experience.

  • Carla Cruz

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2016

    UK, Visual Art – selected with Tottenham Hale International Studios

    Carla Cruz is a London-based artist from Portugal whose ongoing project All My Independent Women experiments with forms of collectivity, the erasure of authorship and practices that take place outside and in defiance of the mainstream art system. Cruz’s research has resulted in the genesis of a community cultural centre in Guimarães, rural Portugal called RASTILHO. Carla has recently completed the residency Finding Money at Open School East, London with the artist Antonio Contador. Cruz is a Research Associate for Goldsmiths University of London, based at the community centre in Walthamstow – The Mill.

    Carla Cruz joined the Interdisciplinary Residency at Hospitalfield in March 2016. Her main focus was on an exploration of greatness and goodness, particularly in respect to Carol Sheild’s latest novel ‘Unless’. She was considering the writing as a framework to critique the ‘art world’ system and other established norms of progress.

  • Holly Keasey

    THIStudios Residency Exchange 2016

    UK, Visual Art – Selected as part of the DD Artists Scheme

    Holly Keasey is an artist working in and from Dundee. She is currently working on collaborative design proposals for the V+A Dundee restaurant and Plot 9 of Dundee’s Waterfront Redevelopment; conducting artistic research into the political agency of architecture at KKH in Stockholm; and producing new work for an exhibition at Verdent Works through the support of the Dundee Visual Artist Award. Previously, Holly has delivered socially engaged projects for various arts organisations including lead-artist for the Clyde River Foundation educational project, Trout in Transition, writer-in-residence for Doggerland and completed a two year position leading the curatorial committee of Generator Projects.

    Holly Keasey‘s site-responsive projects employ a framework that makes use of water as a tool to criss-cross abstract theory and ecological concerns. In an extension to this approach, she is interested in how collaborative methods of critical practice can influence a cultural change towards alternative social formations. Her residency at Tottenham Hale International Studios focused on considerations of Hale as both a village undergoing regeneration, paralleled with Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm, and a word with a meaning indicating to be pulled forward or progressed.

  • Jane Dickson, Anneke Kampman, Lucy Duncombe

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2016

    UK, Composition, Writing, Performance

    Dickson, Duncombe and Kampman are Glasgow based artists whose work explores voice as object, the instability of meaning, and using sound to unsettle the balance between perception and reality. Labyrinthine, their debut work together which premieres at La Monnaie, National Opera of Belgium in October 2015, aims to deconstruct the apparatus of opera, particularly how women sound – in words and music – through the juxtaposition of classical structures, fractured narratives and plastic vocals. Their collaborative approach to text and sound allows them to challenge traditional modes of production within opera, particularly the hierarchy of librettist – composer – performer.

  • Judith Hagan

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2016

    UK, Painting

    A recent graduate from the Glasgow School of Art, and now regularly exhibiting, Judith Hagen works from the East End-based Crownpoint Studios. Dealing largely in realms of painting and writing, the work occupies emotional and metaphysical spaces and landscapes and human histories, searching through ideas of social narratives, solitude and personal mythologies, and the sometimes sad and absurd contrasts between reality, humanity and worldly beauty. The themes Hagen deals with stem from a wide range of sources; literature, philosophical writings, ideas of reality, time and space, and also world myths, histories and religion.

  • Marie-France Brière

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2016

    Canada, Visual Art, Sculpture

    Marie-France Brière has, for several years, oriented her research towards sculpture that explores multiple avenues within its shifting practice, and that raises, amongst others, questions around relationships of surface, permeability, and opacity. In addition, and more recently, she has devoted her attention to public art, seeking through the blending of genres and other approaches, to suggest a reading of the object that is both complex and poetic. Under the auspices of the Politique d’intégration des arts à l’architecture du Québec, she has created numerous works that activate and engage material experience in interior as well as exterior spaces.
