A brief introduction about coming artists-in-residence...

Amanda Selinder, "Intertwined bodies" (up & down photos)

Amanda Selinder is a natural dyer and fiber artist. She works with fermentation processes and cultures of microorganism. She says, she is questioning in her performances, if our body is just an extension of the bacterial culture. Most of her work is related to visualize what we normally don’t see or think about, but, is crucial for the human existence.

Gema de Castro Santos is interested in working with artists from different nationalities and backgrounds, weaving an art network to form a common idea of support and development of artists. Her work is focused on Time, Communication and Transformation using independent project spaces and galleries.
