In November 2020, we are working with four artists from across the globe, including Angela Su (Hong Kong), Clifford Sage (UK), Damien Robinson (UK) and Jaene F. Castrillon (Canada). Throughout November 2020, artists will have the opportunity to interact with one another, test and explore ideas, and engage with audiences through the site via postings, events and their work.
Angela Su’s works investigate the perception and imagery of the body, through metamorphosis, hybridity and transformation. Her research-based projects include drawing, video, performative and installation works that focus on the interrelations between our state of being and scientific technology. Central to these projects are video essays that weave together fiction and facts.
Clifford Sage is a CGI artist based in London. Often working with animation and virtual world building, Sage explores audio interaction and non-linear storylines through game engines. He has collaborated with many artists over the years, with recent projects including with Tuner, Somerset House Studios, London (2018), Club Adriatico, Ravenna, IT (2018) and LEV Festival, ES (2019).
Damien Robinson is a visual artist working with digital, analogue, and found media. She re-purposes found and donated materials, exploring and intermixing contemporary and historical technologies. Misusing processes (often through lack of access to learning mechanisms as a D/deaf artist), allows her to discover new processes and outcomes.
Jaene F. Castrillon
Jaene F. Castrillon is an interdisciplinary film-based artist residing in Toronto, Canada. Castrillion uses story-telling as an internal journey to explore issues concerning social justice, advocacy, poverty, marginalisation and equality. Shifting the paradigm to understanding that people like herself are part of the fabric of humanity.
For our first residency programme (Sept-Oct 2020), we collaborated with four UK artists, Seecum Cheung, Joey Holder, Daniel Locke, and Romily Alice Walden.
Seecum Cheung is an artist filmmaker with an activist and charity-based background, whose works are based upon an ongoing series of experimental interviews and encounters with specialists in the field of right-wing radicalism, human-rights refugee and activist groups, politicians, and affected citizens.
Daniel Locke is an artist and graphic novelist based in Brighton, UK. Since 2013 much of his work has been informed and shaped by the discoveries of contemporary science. He’s worked with Nobrow, Arts Council England, The Wellcome Trust and The National Trust.
Joey Holder‘s work raises philosophical questions of our universe and things yet unknown, regarding the future of science, medicine, biology and human-machine interactions. Working with scientific and technical experts she makes immersive, multimedia installations that explore the limits of the human and how we experience non-human, natural and technological forms.
Romily Alice Walden
Romily Alice Walden is a transdisciplinary artist whose work centres a queer, disabled perspective on the fragility of the body. Their practice spans sculpture, installation, video, curation and printed matter, all of which is undertaken with a socially engaged and research-led working methodology.
