Swiss artists Livia Salome Gnos and Stephan Perrinjaquet have stayed in the Nordurgata residency since December 2012. They will conclude the residency with an open studio on Saturday January 5, from 5-8 pm.
Stephan aka Dollar Mambo works in Seydisfjordur on a new album project. He’s using acoustic sounds and electronics. During this one month residency, he used audio material recorded in Tvsongur installation, and do collaborate with the people and artists living here in Seydisfjordur. Singing, percussions, and saxophone…Livias visual work belongs to what we can see.But how to define the borders between reality and abstraction ? Could abstraction be named as such only until what is seen is understood ?
In her current work Livia is trying to catch some of the universal language of transformations.
