Artist-in-residence Signe Lidén arrives in Ramberg

Like the tide, LIAF 2019 ebbs and flows through an extended year in four small communities across the entire Lofoten archipelago. In Digermulen, Skrova, Valberg and Ramberg, artist residencies foster conversations, exploration, introspection and collaboration in the intertidal zone.

Signe Lidén will have her residency period in Ramberg between March and June. During this period there will be an artist presentation open to everyone, where you can get to know Signe and her work, and learn more about her project during LIAF. But all in good time. First we will let her settle in the house and the community together with her three year old son Eirik.

More about the project:
How can the tidal make sense as a figure of long term thinking? And what would constitute the tidal sense in itself? To understand the tide as a sense closely related to chronoception but still as a tangible phenonoma, is what artist Signe Lidén will explore during the residency at Ramberg. The tide is a global wave that connects the intimate and local to the celestial trajectory of the moon. The installation of a sounding canvas is proposed as a fixed point where these movements meet and get amplified. As an expanded interspecies organ, this canvas will be stretched throughout the tidal zone at the shore of Ramberg. It will function as a microphone membrane, an absorbent, a speaker, and a large sculptural space for conversation and interaction.
