Arrival only few days ago, I discovered the beauty of this place where I will work for a month. I feel lucky!
It’s hard to take a good picture of the anthotype, but you can see result if you pay attention. I keep secret the modifications that I’m going to make on the transparencies.
I just came back from a residency in Belgium and this postcard was waiting for me. I was very happy to have a memory of Harlösa, but I’m nostalgic now.
The second of my Anthotype postcards sent the Day before I left Harlösa has arrived! Here are the photos that fellow resident artist Ji-ii Choi sent me from South Korea. The original photograph was taken along the road heading out of Harlösa to Vom, looking towards Harlösa.
Thanks for the photos Ji-ii! I look forward to seeing the results!
The last creature is a Bear goddess. She exist in the culture and religion of many first nations.
Just before I left Harlösa (such a sad day!) I began a postal project that I hope will keep alive for me the residency’s spirit of collaborative creative sharing. Four beetroot-coated papers and photo transparencies (images of Harlösa) in transparent envelopes, ready to place in windows for exposure, were sent to four artist friends, across the globe.
Here is photographic artist Évelyne Coutas taping her Anthotype of the ICA store sign to the window of her Parisian apartment. The window faces her local store so she’ll be sending me a transparency depicting it, with which to create an Anthotype in England.
I’m looking forward to hearing news of the other Anthotype postcards.
