  • Beverley Chapman

    Interdisciplinary Residency November 2019

    Beverley Chapman’s practice has developed from the (ongoing) restoration of a full size fairground horse. This process has enabled her to engage with and make new work that responds to multiple relevant topics including, life cycles, folk culture, memory and archives (especially in terms of the ethics around them). Whilst the new work undoubtedly has its own agency, it also informs the decisions that she makes about the horse restoration.

    Chapman’s practice is situated in the expanded field of sculpture and recently she has been experimenting with the inclusion of the written word to enhance her sculptural storytelling.

  • Erin Woodbrey

    Interdisciplinary Residency November 2019

    Erin Woodbrey is a visual artist whose body of cross-disciplinary work —videos, photographs, prints, and sculpture— are defined by their shared fascination with process and the lineage of learning through objects. Woodbrey’s work is presented, piece by piece, as an origin-based examination of fabricated and naturally occurring units of space and time. Her gaze, wide in scope, is trained on the interrelated qualities of process, materials, nature, and architecture and asks essential questions about how the functions of objects and nature inform, mirror, and tend to the human condition.

  • María Hrönn Gunnarsdóttir

    Interdisciplinary Residency November 2019

    María Hrönn Gunnarsdóttir is an Icelandic artist living in Reykjavík. She has a M.A. in Fine Arts from the Iceland University of the Arts, a diploma in ceramics from the Reykjavík School of Visual Arts, a M.A. in Pharmacy and a diploma in journalism from the University of Iceland.

    María’s recent art practice studies how tribulations and traumatic events in life become the source of creativity. She is interested in how memories and imagination take the mind into unexpected journeys through the past, present and future, and how this often is intrinsically woven into the landscape and everyday objects. Her works are mostly installations but the focus of her resent investigations is how to move toward two dimensional works, which incorporate “slow time” as the third dimension.

  • Marika Borgeson

    Interdisciplinary Residency November 2019

    Fascinated by the fluidity and mythology of American histories, Marika Borgeson uses film and video to explore the suspension of time and the creation of legends through historic sites, museums, landscapes, and archives. Currently based in Los Angeles, California, her interest in the intersections of the historical and contemporary has recently manifested in the investigation of traditional opera repertoire and its ability to engage with current affairs.

    Her work has screened internationally in galleries and festivals, including the New York Film Festival, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Void Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland, and the Media City Film Festival in Windsor, Canada. She holds a degree in Classical Vocal Performance from New York University and an MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts from Duke University.

  • Niamh O’Loughlin & Chloe Laurence

    Interdisciplinary Residency November 2019

    Niamh O’Loughlin is Dance Artist currently based between Ireland and Scotland. She graduated from The Scottish School of Contemporary dance with a First Class Ba Hons degree. Since graduating she has taught for organisations such as Scottish Dance Theatre, Shaper/Caper, The Byre Youth and Community Arts and Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust. She regularly performs with Movement based ensemble Third Thread.

    She is interested in inclusive practices, improvisation and choreography. Her most recent work “An Fathach Mór” (“The Big Giant”) has been support by Scottish Youth Theatre’s Making Space program and Dundee Rep theatre. It is a children’s work exploring the legends of The Giants Causeway and the cultural links between Ireland and Scotland. Her practice combines movement voice and sound.

    Chloe Laurence is a multimedia artist, her practice combining printmaking, performance and moving image.

    Laurence grew up in London and graduated from the University of Brighton in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking. She has created site- specific works across England, Scotland, Canada, Denmark and Sweden.
    Laurence’s practice is a form of visual storytelling, conveying moments of interactions in nature. Using walking as a base of the work, the performance is the experience, the film and the print is the document that the experience happened. The pieces invite viewers into Chloe’s world to engage with human activity and the use of the body into ways of thinking about our situated place in the world, to evoke a feeling of freedom within the playfulness of creating.

    Printmaking means to Laurence ways of thinking and problem solving, as an approach to becoming more alive in a way that asks us to engage with life in a visceral and interactive way.
