THEMATIC RESIDENCY: WANDERLUST

In June 2019, Ströndin Studio co-hosted the thematic residency Wanderlust with Skaftfell Center for Visual Art. Referring to Rebecca Solnit’s book Wanderlust, the residency grouped together artists who wish to link the activities of walking, thinking and art-making, with the aim to explore how art can convey one’s experience of place.

 

Through group walks, conversations, workshops, and fieldwork, the group developped their sensitivities to place, and share our responses through artistic expression.

 

The residency was guided by Jessica Auer, visual artist and co-director of Ströndin Studio. The outcome of the residency was presented in the exhibition At Three Miles an Hour,June 22-23, 2019.
