NES Artist Residency, Skagaströnd, Iceland. July 2021
The residency has been developped in 6 series, being one of them the project Sleipnir. Three of them here:
The colors of Iceland
During my stay in Iceland, I understood that outdoors painting was going to be a major source for my research.
Because if I am looking for connections and comprehend changes nothing best than to experiment them first hand.
I was trapped by the gigantic event of the volcano eruption. Intrigued by other specific characteristics of the Island, 6 series have been developed.
And I have been investigating if/how climate change is affecting Icelandic horses. Is nature trying to say something to us?
These beautiful horses seem to be the ultimate connection between humans and nature, wildlife.
Another series about the particular amazing colours of Iceland has been done. ( 6 series in total, and more than 200 pictures ).
There are more than 80.000 horses of Icelandic breed in Iceland, and climate change can be a big deal for them.
I am doing a research about this topic, focusing on the winter/summer of 2019/2020 when the weather changed so drastically.
So, I would like to make an Art installation that can bring awareness to the problem. It would be great to display it in different places or spaces, as an itinerant capsule exhibition.
The main idea of the work is to represent a herd of horses around the spectator.
There is no need of money (except for the quote to maintain a website to communicate with other people involved in the project). But I am going to need three things:
• materials: must be recycled-reused-waste free material; it can be mirrors, steel, and polycarbonate panels. Projectors and lights to borrow.
• horse farms people to connect with, who know about the problem and would like to share their thoughts and expertise in the topic about if/how climate change is affecting horses and wildlife in Iceland.
• spaces, to show the work in: in order to display the installation in different places, must be an itinerant exhibition, looking better for spaces that can be dark.
• interview: if you want to collaborate by responding to a short interview (very short, two questions, ;)…)
• photographs, information, videos, of horses and such, that could be used in the research and in the installation itself.
