As part of Landscape : Islands, the first ever international residency programme hosted by The Ceramic House took place in 2106. Developing out of Kay Aplin and Joseph Young’s exhibition In A Shetland Landscape, they decided to extend the opportunity to sound and ceramic artists to collaborate together.
For the inaugural residency at The Ceramic House, two pairs of sound and ceramic artists collaborated on new work in response to the theme of landscape/islands throughout August 2016.
An excerpt from the full project film Landscape : islands about the residencies and the exhibitions at Phoenix Artspace and In Camera Gallery for Brighton Digital Festival 2016
The ceramic artists lived at The Ceramic House and used Kay’s studio facilities at Phoenix Artspace. The sound artists visited regularly, using Joseph’s sound studio, also at Phoenix. Aplin and Young curated an exhibition of the resulting installations at Phoenix Artspace as part of Brighton Digital Festival in September 2016. Simultaneously, and setting the context for the Resident Islands residencies, a touring version of Young and Aplin’s installation In A Shetland Landscape was exhibited at IN CAMERA with new ceramic pieces made especially for the space.
