Hildaland: A Lost Man and A Lost Island – videolist and artist talk

Screenings and talk arranged by Forlagið Eksil.

Tsz Man Chan, visual artist and founder of Papay Gyro Nights art festival from one of the most remote islands of Scotland in the Orkney Islands will present 3 recent video works that reflect on her lost partner IVANOV. The work is fictional mythology merging into surreal life story. Through the magic of the Finfolk, Hildaland was kept hidden from mortal eyes, though the shores of this earthly paradise were often glimpsed by travellers. Through fog travellers able to entre to the other world without any trace and only stories can be left behind.

Zima, Chan Tsz Man will also be giving a talk with anthropologist and writer Stuart McLean from The University of Minnesota, sharing their views and experience on the blur of mythology, creativities and real life. We would like to dedicate this event to IVANOV (one of the founders of Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival) who vanished on the island of Orkney in 2017.

In search of lost colours

Randi Samsonsens main medium is textile and colours play a vitale role in her memories. In this talk she will take us on a search for the lost colours. Her knitted, crocheted, sewn and stuffed artworks along with lithographic works were created for her exhibition, In Search of Lost Colours spring 2018. The exhibition was conceptual and both the lithographic and textile works have the same startingpoint which the artist has referred to as colour memories from the different homes she grew up in and visited as a child. From childhod we are blessed with an outstanding ability to sence our surrounding. We see, smell, hear and feel the rooms surrounding us and the things in them so thoroughly, that we are able to relive these sensory secollections many years later.

Blind man´s bluff in the silver stable

We are going to put out the lights and put on the record so that we can sense it better. The Silver Record – Silvurpláta by faroese hip hop group Silvurdrongur – does not merely need to be heard, it needs to be seen and felt. To be wandered through. A desert hike with an oasis of sound. Come and listen. Blindly.
