Former Artists in Residence
Kaisa Aglen, poetry artist in residence in 2018
Kaisa Aglen was born in 1985 in Volda, Norway. Today, Kaisa lives in Trondheim where she has studied philosophy. She debuted with the poem collection “Kvar i kroppen sit ingenting” (2012) and has since then released “Mellom krig” (2016), both published by the Norwegian publisher Samlaget.
Kaisa Aglen said this about her work and her stay at Österåsen:
One of the themes I’m writing on now is sickness. I hope to investigate it both from an existential and a political perspective. I believe both the history of Österåsens Hälsohem, and its current practice will be a great resource for my book. My writing needs both calm space and new impulses.
Alan Waters, ceramics artist in residence in 2018
Alan Waters about his work:
I completed my fine art degree in 92 and I’ve been working as a full time practicing artist since. My work is within the areas of painting, sculpture and public art. I combine ideas associated to music/dance and architecture; often I introduce elements which have an historical content. I have completed large scale public art projects throughout China, Germany, USA and Iran - to a scale of 16.5m. I create my ideas using and manipulating found, reclaimed and donated materials. I’ve exhibited extensively overseas and within the UK.
Ryo Ikeshiro, 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. He is a contributor to Sound Art: Sound as a medium of art, a forthcoming publication from ZKM Karlsruhe and he is featured in the Electronic Music volume of the Cambridge Introductions to Music series.
