  • 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

  • Josh Blackwell

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2019

    Josh Blackwell is an artist and teacher. Their work has been exhibited in venues such as the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, the Mackintosh Museum at the Glasgow School of Art, and MoMA PS1 in New York. Recently their work is included in Vitamin T: Threads + Textiles in Contemporary Art, published by Phaidon Press in 2019.

    Blackwell’s works are called Neveruses (never·uses). Neveruses are hybrid painting-objects comprised of recovered plastic bags and colored fibers such as wool yarn, silk thread, and patterned cloth. They invert painting conventions by disordering the traditional protocols of form, use, and meaning through exhibition and performance. Blackwell’s honors and awards include a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and fellowships from the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, ZKU Berlin, Santa Fe Art Institute, the Delfina Studio Trust in London, and the Corporation of Yaddo. Blackwell is a member of the visual arts faculty at Bennington College in Vermont and is represented by Kate MacGarry, London.
