Om AiR Green

Kunstneroppholdet AiR Green ble initiert av NTK i 2015 for å skape en arena for fordypning og konsentrasjon, bidra til utvikling og synliggjøring av tekstilkunst og fremme kontakt mellom kunstnere med ulik tilnærming til tekstilfeltet. AiR Green foregår på idylliske Søndre Green gård i Krødsherad i Buskerud, som eies og drives av tekstilkunstner Kristin Lindberg. Kunstneroppholdet har blitt avholdt hvert år siden 2016.

Presentasjon av deltakerne:

Josefin Tingvall

Josefin Tingvall, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is an artist who works in a variety of media, with a base in textile techniques and crafts, the core of her practice is poetic and material questioning. By encountering material she explores the dynamics of the landscape, manipulation of its effects and boundaries. Themes Tingvall works with are environment, fragility, and change; the role of human beings in our self-built world. She is educated in crafts and design at Linköping University, has a Master of fine arts from Konstfacks Craft program, and has participated as a guest student at the Royal Academy of Arts in Stockholm. In the spring and summer of 2020, she participated at Iaspis residency, Konstnärsnämnden – the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, residence in Stockholm.

During the residency she will focus on the relationship between two projects, an archival project that started in 2016 and is made with a self developed technique where you make prints from the existing dye in clothing. The project Soft Society is made with prints from dropped gloves and mittens on raw silk fabric. The second project is a part of a collaboration with Hemslöjden Östargötland, a traditional Sloyd association in Sweden, regarding linen-fiber and the relation to the plant.

Mae Chan

Mae Chan lives and works in London, UK. She graduated from the Royal College of Art (2021) with an MA in Textiles. Chan was a finalist nominee for the 2021 Ingram Prize and The New Craftsmen Award at Cockpit Arts (2021). Her work has been exhibited at Visual Arts Scotland (Online), Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop (London), Young Space Views (Online), The Fitzrovia Gallery (London), and ArtSect Gallery (London). She has an upcoming group exhibition with London Craft Week in 2022.

Mae Chan’s sculptural objects are rooted in textile and artisanal craft traditions. Referencing the dynamic human form, her work exists to communicate the subtle emotional shifts in the individual experience of intimacy, boundary, and judgment. Her work often draws inspiration from real stories of human touch and explores the narratives that exist beyond that single moment. The juxtaposition of soft and hard materials, such as wool fibre, thread, wood, and jesmonite, poetically depicts the breath, temperature, and weight experienced through the intimate gestures of wrapping and touching. Laboured hand-making techniques – felting, tufting, dyeing, moulding, and casting – also act as a metaphor for our recollections of touch when touch has encountered a new taboo.

“I’m looking forward to exploring raw wool from Spælsau fed by Søndre Green farm and blending it into my soft sculptures. Also, I will start to experiment with the natural dyeing process, considering the concerns about the environment. The herbs and plants from local nature will be my treasure.”

Linn Rebekka Åmo

Linn Rebekka Åmo er født i 1978 i Bodø. Hun har en master i kunst fra Kunstakademiet i Trondheim (2009), og en bachelor fra Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen avd. Kunstakademiet (2007). Hun jobber i hovedsak med tekstil, håndapplikert. Hennes verk har blitt presentert ved Høstutstillingen, Cosmoscow i Moskva, Stormen kulturhus, Bodø kunstforening, RAKE visningsrom, Babel, Trøndelagsutstillingen, Den Nordnorske kunstutstilling og Årsutstillingen 2021. ). Hun bor og arbeider i Bodø.

“Mine arbeider består i hovedsak av tekstil. Arbeidsprosessen har flere faser. I begynnelsen jobber jeg gjerne mer spontant, jeg tegner, skriver ned ,leser, samler materialer og klipper disse til. Jeg har få begrensninger i forhold til materialvalg og gjenbruk av tekstiler er interessant for meg på flere måter- de har en historie i seg selv, men jeg er også opptatt av miljøaspektet i det å gjenbruke.

I arbeidet med mine tekstile collager setter jeg sammen frittstående elementer av farge, form og materialer til gjennomarbeidede komposisjoner av forskjellige tekstile kvaliteter. Jeg arbeider kontinuerlig med å samle materialer som kan ha små historiske referanser, erfaringer, fragmenter av levd liv. Arbeidenes tematikk kretser rundt oppdagelser, natur, tid, historie og miljø.”

Addoley Dzegede

Addoley Dzegede is a Ghanaian-American artist based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She received a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and an MFA from Washington University in St Louis. Addoley is a Tulsa Artist Fellow and Knotzland Resident and has been an Artist-in-Residence at Loghaven Artist Residency in Knoxville, the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, and Osei Duro in Accra, among others. Solo exhibitions include Ballast, at Contemporary Art Museum St Louis and millefiori at KSMoCA in Portland, Oregon. Collaborative projects include five seasons of the Ask Addoley + Anna podcast with Anna Ihle, which has been commissioned most recently for The Real Show at CAC Bretigny, and an upcoming exhibition at Sharp Projects in Copenhagen with Lyndon Barrois Jr.

“My current interests lie in the interconnected, transcontinental history of textiles and decorative objects that are strongly identified with Africa but have origins in parts of Europe and Asia. I create textile works using screen printing, dyeing, and batik processes as a means for conveying nuanced messages that question ideas of authenticity and speak to histories ranging from hyperlocal to global, recent to distant, while merging personal and collective histories. At the AIR Green farm, I look forward to an opportunity to experiment with natural dyes on cellulose fibers. My recent works have used very bright synthetic colors for conceptual reasons tied to the history and use of wax print fabric, but knowing that bright colors are also achievable through natural dyeing, I would like to learn more and incorporate them into my work. I also look forward to getting to know the other artists in residence.”
