Repost from The Grant Green Story’s Facebook page:
Looking forward to 3:30pm free screening today at the NES Artist Residency in Skagastrond, a town of about 540 people in rural Iceland. This particular residency has a film component so it will be interesting to get additional feedback from the perspective of these artists-in-residence.
I understand NES is in an old fishing factory and the communal studio has a freezer room where videos and films are screened. This sounds intriguing.
I checked out some of the work on their website. This visual-poem by Jeff Mertz captures much of what I have felt during the past month here in Iceland at an artist residency in Blonduos. I also enjoyed the interview with artist Yu Arkai. His thoughts about his approach to creating resonates.
