A group of artists, designers, choreographers, composers and curators from the USA, Israel, Australia and the UK came together for our two week Interdisciplinary Residency.
Each individual brought an urgent project to work on and found workspace in the house and studios to progress their ideas. The group came together for meals and for discussions in the evenings. Discussion guests to this residency included Jude Barber, who was one of the selectors. Barber prompted a discussion about ‘private’ working and ‘public’ working, starting from the motif of the gallery as a place between these two. As Architect-Director at Collective Architecture she referred to her practice as an architect as a public service. The residents also had a discussion evening with the artist, poet and publisher Alec Finlay who introduced his current projects and started a conversation about what he called the HUMANDWOLF project.
