Venue, Timing and Cost
The exhibition, which runs from 6-18 August, draws on her work with Artist Developers collective which held residences in the Arctic Circle at the Nordland Akademi for Kunst og Vitenskap and Norwegian Fishing Industry Museum in north Norway between 2016 and 2018.
The residencies, organised by the Neptun Art/Science Lab, focus on challenges related to the sea and climate, through the use of experimental and new technology.
The collective explored the geo-political shift affecting the landscape and community of the town Melbu, its heritage and future. In 2017 they produced an audio-visual installation and performance in a disused herring oil tank, and an exhibition of the collective’s work.
Contingent Passages uses innovative processes of documentation to record and reveal Rhiannon’s personal experiences as a temporary resident and collaborative creator in this Arctic Norway community - connections made, stories shared, actions taken and reflections recorded.
Rhiannon is interested in how personal and collective experience is recorded, embodied, recollected and disseminated. Her work celebrates a contemporary folklore using everyday objects, simple structures and rituals, spontaneity and playfulness to reveal and create new personal mythologies.
Contingent Passages includes photograms and pinhole photographs made during the residencies, pastel paintings and reflections created on her return.
Rhiannon studied Fine Art at Central St Martins College, London in 2011 and completed her MA Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College, London in 2016.
