This residency will give artists a space to explore notions of remoteness and ecology with a strong connection to nature.

The week will be led by artist Emma Harry whose practice is informed by her interest in geological processes and the effect of time and erosion on the landscape.

“This trip will be an opportunity to experience the ocean first hand in a very intimate way. We will be travelling between islands by sail, a slow form of transport which allows an appreciation of distance, separation and the elements. It also brings people together as a crew to explore collaboratively, and to develop and exchange ideas. In addition to some wonderful crossings between islands under sail, we’ll be able to go ashore each evening to bridge the littoral zone between land and sea and have space to develop our personal connections to the landscape.

No prior sailing experience is required. All equipment is provided, and we’ll get everyone involved in the running of the boat.”
