Residents / 2019

  • Tomoko Sato

    Born in Nagano in 1990. Lives and works in Kanagawa. Sato obtained her Master of Fine Arts in Film and New Media from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2018.

By linking issues that arise in the process of investigating historical facts in a multifaceted way, Sato constructs a story that interweaves fiction and documentary. Sato’s works are the product of her interest in Japan’s pursuit of a distorted form of modernization and the plurality conveyed by events that have fallen through the cracks of History with a capital H as well as her attraction to legends and ruins that survive in various places.

    Collaborative artists Mike S Redmond and Faye Coral Johnson (MSR FCJ) are the duo behind collections that dare to explore all manner of odd but enchanting circumstances.

  • Betsy Dadd

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2019

    I make experimental moving-image. This is the collision of many things: drawing, film, photography, sequence, sound, rhythm, time, editing, movement, projection, spatial installation – in infinite combinations – everything in a state of flux. I use these tools as a barometer to document locations undergoing change and explore the intersection between social and geographic place. I develop site-responsive film-making approaches devising new ways of looking and capturing. Inventive and ad-hoc uses of the camera are informed by the physicality of place – helping to extract the experiential, subjective and conditional aspects of location.

    Previous projects have been shown/commissioned by Camden Arts Centre, South London Gallery, Venice Architecture Bienalle (collaboration with Assemble), Focal Point Gallery, V&A, MK Gallery, No-Mu, Japan, IndieLisboa, Portugal, Encounters Film Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival and Holland Animation and Film Festival.

  • Dan Newton

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2019

    I like lampposts, and things communicating, and sociological complications. I like scheming doorstops, societal tensions, disinformation, non-fictions, autonomous shower hoses, the anti-anthropocentric and things where they don’t belong. I like inactivity, inaccessibility, fences, domestic theatre and micro-misalignment. I like things that perform without anybody watching, and what happens if we are made to notice. I like neighbourhood watch signs, I like words, and I like first person narratives. Look closely. Look really closely. And keep looking.

    MFA: The Glasgow School of Art (2018). BA: University of Leeds (2012)

  • Eric Dickson

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2019

    Eric Dickson (b1975 Los Angeles) is an installation artist, writer, and researcher who teaches politics and psychology at New York University. Originally trained as a theoretical physicist, his academic work explores the strategic and psychological foundations of identity and power in contemporary societies. His artistic practice probes related questions and explores the frontier between storytelling and installation art through interactive audio installations that embrace literary, technical, and site-specific challenges. His recent work has broadcast fragmentary tales of an epic overland journey from antique wardrobes dispersed around a square mile of Nevada desert; scattered monologues from an uncertain collapse, ambiguously describing the end of a relationship or the fall of a republic, around an abandoned military base; and developed a unique soundscape blending first-person narrations of dreams with scripted stories constructed from recycled dream elements. www.ericdickson.net

  • Kikki Ghezzi

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2019
    Kikki Ghezzi graduated from the BFA at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 2011. Though rooted in painting, her work, nourished by writings,  often includes various experimental forms – installations, textiles and artist’s books. As sand and rocks are a stage for land art artists, wrapping a whole house with fish net in a laborious work of body against body is for Kikki similar to obsessively accumulating marks on a canvas. The common perception,  both outside in the open landscape and inside in the intimate studio, is that of being in a different time and space.
  • Lizzie Watts

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2019

    Much of Lizzie Watts’ work explores a fantastical and embodied engagement with the natural world. Attracted by cartoons and their ability to explore bodiliness, abjection and disgust, Watts utilises kitschy and, at times, grotesque sensibilities to create what she calls ‘ecologies of intimate objects’. Watts’ work borrows imagery and ideas from archaeological and scientific discoveries to explore the messy intermingling of human and non-human timescales. Ideas about these relationships are manifested in Watts’ work not through linear narratives, but instead in sculptural debris, fascinating objects, and in films and animations which focus upon isolated and enchanting behaviours.

  • Lucy Barlow

    Interdisciplinary Residency March 2019
    Lucy Barlow studied at Glasgow School of Art BA(Hons) Fine Art Sculpture 1993-1996, and Middlesex University BA(Hons) 3D Design 1991-1993.
    Lucy’s work considers a sensitivity to the structural transitions, habitations and remains at Rubha nan Sasan (point of difficulty), a sparsely populated peninsula on Loch Ewe, Wester Ross, Scotland. The topographical nature of dispersal amongst small scale structures and habitations, and their co-existence through different periods of history. Through the mapping of these relationships, an interplay of time, scale and materials affords the opportunity to create an exciting sculptural language on a personal scale. Enabling ficticious and unexpected moments of delight. Lucy is based at Fish Island, Hackney Wick, next to the Olympic Park in London.
