Artists in Residence 2024:
Jorieke Rottier (Holland)
The material present and the simple act
A marine student¹ stares at the sea, sitting on a bench by the shore. In his hand a paper boat. I live on Walcheren (Zeeland, NL), an island in a delta whose fertile land is protected by dikes. Far from life in the big city, where art events take place daily, as a child I encountered art in public spaces.
During a festival, a fighter jet demonstration ended in a crash on the island of Långholmen. There was one injured person. A paper airplane², its nose drilled into the ground, commemorates the event.
The discovery that there is another island that has a connection to the fragility of man and island, to being on the road, symbolized with a paper fold, is the visual starting point for this working period.
On Långholmen, a bare rock on which people have manually applied mud and sewage sediment to make it fertile, I will be present for two weeks with attention, absorbing the impressions as folds in my paper.
What does it mean to be part of an archipelago, as a place and as a human being, within current climate developments? What materials and processes are specific to this place? What intrinsic and visual qualities do they offer? What is discarded here, what washes up here? This work period takes place as part of the research within my work process that starts in the spring and continues through fall 2024.
The central question herein is "to what extent does man coincide with her environment?"
Living heritage of Stockholm city
The project will focus on the multiple human aspects of this heritage.
It will integrate the reality of society, a portrait of the current city.
Everyone will be photographed with the same background, to highlight our differences in a common portrait.
The project will update what it means to be a citizen of Stockholm.
Christopher Delory is a French photographer based between France and Sweden for more than 30 years. His work questions identity, community, territory and memory. He works in a documentary style, following the definition of Walker Evans (USA 1903-1975) with a focal point on the subjective aspects. His artworks has been exhibited in several countries all over the world.
