Artist in Residency: Fish Factory / Iceland
During my Artist in Residency stay in Iceland I had the opportunity to continue and further develop my project “The Individual Collective”, which I started in Finland (August 2020).
At the residency in Stöðvarfjörður I dealt more closely with the concept of community. Based on the perception of the individual, I wanted to create a connection between several individuals and thus create an image of collective perception. On the basis of interviews, I collected the interpretations of a total of fifteen participants and transformed them into digital works of art:
After the completion of the digital works, I devoted myself more intensively to one of the motifs in order to transport it onto paper as a multicolor print using the linoleum printing process. Using 3 linoleum plates, the finished linoleum print has finally manifested itself through the processing of a total of 13 layers and also gave inspiration for further experiments:
Inspired by the colorful and mythical nature of Iceland, I also created other small-format works beyond the project:
More information about my stay in Stöðvarfjörður with pictures and an interview about the project can be found in my article on the Fish Factory homepage.
