Welcome Þórir Freyr Höskuldsson and Fjóla Gautadóttir

Skaftfell is thrilled to welcome Þórir Freyr Höskuldsson and Fjóla Gautadóttir artists in residence for the month of February.

Fjóla is an Icelandic performer, sound designer, writer and DJ. They have a background both in classical dance and music and finished a BA in Dance and Choreography from HZT Berlin in 2019 and have since been working actively as a Sound Designer in the Berlin dance and performance scene.
Þórir is a visual/sound artist with a Bachelor’s degree from the ArtScience Interfaculty in the Royal Academy of Art, Den Haag. His works often take the shape of performative installations where he mixes sound, visual images and the spoken word together. He founded, among others, the radio station Útvarp Súðarvogur.

At Skaftfell they will work on a radio play set in the future, centered around a father and daughter practicing a magic show while living in a struggling desert community. Following the tradition of a community based radio in Seyðisfjörður, the plan is to host a weekly radio panel including snippets of the work, reflections on the radio as a medium, with input from guests, both local and through the radio waves.
