A Nonesuch Collaborative Residency : Lancaster, Smallwood, Waldron

Lancaster Elsewhere Exhibition 360 gel transfers on wood

This July Main & Station is delighted to welcome back artist Sydney Lancaster and geologist John Waldron, and to introduce composer Scott Smallwood to Parrsboro.

The team are collaborating on a multidisciplinary project that will “explore both the limitlessness of the tide’s ebb and flow, and the limits of human capacity to comprehend time on that immense scale”.

This summer is a 2 week Research & Development Residency, to plan and develop a new site-specific sculptural installation responding to the tidal range in the Bay of Fundy. The goal is to scout potential locations for an installation, meet with local people (potential collaborators) and get to know the area.  The team will also be learning about local materials and trying some experiments to see what might best be used for the work, a large-scale site-based sculptural installation which they hope to create and document in summer 2017.

Jessica Returns

Jessica

We are delighted to announce that Jessica Sallay-Carrington, a ceramic artist currently residing in Montreal, will be returning to Parrsboro on a Nonesuch Artist’s Residency in February 2016.

During her stay in Parrsboro Jessica will create new work focussed upon questions such as how body hair relates to gender in modern western culture and similar explorations of the female form that contradict stereotypes and preconceived ideas about gender and body image.

As well as making her own art, Jessica will once again be teaching the very popular workshop HOLLOW SOLIDS.
