Rydh /Sörenson in the Faroe Islands

rydh_sorenson_faroe islandsRydh/ Sörenson are visiting the beautiful Faroe Islands. We will be here for almost a month, filming, photographing and creating new artwork. We are located in Tjørnuvík, a very special bay with a village of only 50 inhabitants. The bay is surrounded by mountains, steep and lush with small waterfalls all over.  We have been climbing and walking up and down the mountains. We have found magical rocks, seen amazing, and terrifying clouds, been attached by seagulls and had multiple cases of vertigo, still so happy to be here, one of the most breathtaking places on earth.

We are also proud to announce that we will exhibit at the Nordic House in Tórshavn in September, 2017.

I See Water

filmnewyorkLike explorers in the past, looking through their binoculars to discover new land, we composed our video “I See Water” to mimic the look of the two binocular peepholes. What does it mean to be a traveling artist and what is a traveling artist looking for?

Generations of artist before us that have traveled and studied their environment by painting it, drawing it and photograph it, to understand the where in the world we are, describing what they see and feel. A complicated task where the artist sometimes takes the role of an outsider or even worse; a colonial explorer calming what he see as his discovery.

When Rydh/Sörenson travels, we dwell in the landscape we are in; we talk about what we see, then, we look again. How can we really understand where we are? What are the specifics of this site, if we as artists work site specific?

The right part of the video is filmed in Washington State and the left part in Idaho during our travels in the USA.

”I See Water” was first showed at Beverly’s New York, curated by Ed Varie, as a one night only event during NADA artfair.

Float Saranac_posterNew Work by Laboratory Artists-in-Residence Anna Sörenson and Daniel Rydh and Saranac Art Projects member Kurt Madison.

We invite you to come this April to the Saranc Art Projects to play with light, shadow, and color, as Laboratory artists-in-residence Anna Sörenson and Daniel Rydh partner with member Kurt Madison to create an immersive installation showering our space with a jubilant spectrum of reflections and refractions. An interactive piece, we encourage you to come and work with the piece and the artists, and explore how light and color can envelop, attack, and shape a space.
