April 3, CYLAND MediaArtLab heads to Tromsø, Norway to develop a new multimedia project for the Barents region. This project at the intersection of sound, video art and experimental film will be carried out during a week-long residency at the Peripheral Centre. By offering a platform for national and international artists active in various disciplines, Peripheral Centre wants to facilitate collaborations, co-productions, networking and internationalisation of the artists’ practice.
During this period, CYLAND artists and curators Elena Gubanova, Sergey Komarov and Alexey Grachev will be collaborating with multiple artists and cultural organizations, including Arkhangelsk Artist Union, Fridaymilk, Gallery Ch9, Vadsø guest studio, AiR Nordland, Media Center Vykhod, North Norwegian Art Center (Nordnorsk kunstnersenter) and Polar Film Lab /Sarah Schipshack. As always, we strongly believe that involving artists from different countries helps to stimulate research, reflection and international exchange of new ideas. Building relationships and enabling the sharing of experience in the field of art & technology, whilst creating an opportunity for artists to collaborate can lead to further professionalisation and a greater visibility.
