  • 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.

  • 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.
