AIRY - Artist in Residence
AIRY - Artist in Residence Västernorrland is a residency program that includes three residences. The residences are located in three different places in the region, a ceramic residence at Ålsta folkhögskola in Ånge, a sound arts residence at Hola Folkhögskola in Kramfors and a literary residence at Österåsens hälsohem in Sollefteå.
AIRY will give you as an artist or author time for further development, reflection and exploration of your own artistic expression. AIRY will also create opportunities for you to engage with the local area and people, through workshops, lectures, art talks and meetings with other artists or authors in the region. A residence can also lead to an exhibition.
Airy sound arts
Hola Folkhögskola has a long tradition of offering a creative and beautiful environment for people working in the fields of music, sound and art. Through the years Hola Folkhögskola’s Sound Art Course has established a platform for sound art with a practical focus. The course with its network of guest teachers and course leader, Björn Eriksson, is internationally recognised in the audio arts field. The residency offers a combined sound studio with lab space and workshop as well as active hosting that enables access to the regional art life, artist presentations,
performances, installations and interaction with the Sound Art Course.
Ryo Ikeshiro is our sound art artist in residence in 2018
Ryo Ikeshiro is a UK-based Japanese artist and researcher. He is interested in the cultural and political dimension of computational technology, algorithms and media as well as their artistic potential, and his output explores contemporary notions of Otherness as manifested through technology and sound. His practice includes installations and performances using various sound and image formats such as 360-video with spatial audio, multi-channel projections and audio, directional audio, data visualisation and sonification and Teletext, along with interaction and 3D-prints and engravings.
He was part of the Asia Culture Center’s inaugural exhibition in Gwangju, South Korea, and his TeleText art pages have been broadcast on German, Austrian and Swiss national TV.
