I am so excited at the privilege to have been selected and invited to attend the Sapmi Arctic Residency in Northern Norway in March/April 2018.
I have been exploring my connection with both the Arctic and Antarctic regions and expressing that through my photographs, videos and books; so this residency is another wonderful opportunity to continue with this exploration.
The residency is in a wild and feral island where I will be staying in a farm house with a small group of artists for 3 weeks. I feel that I not only have an opportunity to gain a great deal personally through the experience; but my presence, resultant work and continued collaborations and relationships with the community, artists and La Wayaka Current organisation – will be so enriching and valuable.
I am soooo excited!!
