  • Shakti Gomez

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2016

    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.

  • Sophie Mallett

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2016

    UK, Visual Art – selected with Tottenham Hale International Studios

    Sophie Mallett is a London based artist. Her practice is concerned with forms of belonging and exclusion, and how these manifest through national borders, capital and migration. Through music, radio, video and installation she pursues a practice focused on sounds’ intersection with affect, politics and value, concentrating on the connections between sound, music, history and place. Educated at Open School East, London College of Communication and Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Mallett’s practice is both interdisciplinary and collaborative, with a reflexive emphasis on how individuals work together. Recent projects include: ‘Paradise Island’, OUTPOST, Norwich (2017); ‘Hypersea’, Turner Contemporary, Margate (2016); Artist-in-residence, [SPACE], London (2016); Horrid Little Hands, Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2016); Liminal States, RCA, London, (2016); Project Radio, &Model, Leeds, (2015); Live ASMR, Resonance FM and Open School East, London, (2015); Sonic Blind Dates, Tate Britain, London, (2015).
