Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre and the Crespo Foundation are pleased to present an artist talk by Glenkeen Garden Artists in Residence, Filippa Pettersson and Kristin Reiman.

The artists have been working collaboratively at Glenkeen since August and this will be an opportunity to share the work that has emerged from their time there.

The artists will present their work from their studio in the Garden and attendees will also be invited on a walk through the Garden afterwards.

There is limited parking on site so attendees are invited to car-pool. There is also very limited disabled parking on site. Further details about directions, parking etc will be forwarded after booking.

Filippa Pettersson was born in 1987 in Södermanland, Sweden and is living in Frankfurt am Main. From 2009 to 2015, she was a student of fine arts at the Städelschule. Since then, she has her own studio and works in the fields of installation, sculpture, sound and performance. Her works are built on narrative structures, either by using already existing stories or by making them up on her own. Creatures spotted in the desert approximately 130 km north of Eron, as I recall them (2021) was an installation developed in collaboration with Kristin Reiman and Ben Livne Weitzman. It tells the story of a group of humans on the move in the year 2387, where the protagonist stumbles upon a large group of creatures they have never seen before. Creatures spotted... is the first chapter in an ongoing audio-visual sci-fi story. The second chapter is currently in progress at the Glenkeen Garden.

Kristin Reiman works with the notion of discomfort, human malfuctions, and the skewness of perception using sound, speech, and writing. Their works often take the form of audio plays, where one or multiple voices woe over trivial problems and cyclical thoughts.

Reiman has graduated from Städelschule (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) and the Estonian Academy of Arts (Fine Arts BA), having additionally studied at the Royal Academy of Arts Antwerp (Fine Arts). Their latest works include The Drowse (2019), an opera about fatigue, and Muffle, Mute and Dim (2019), a fictional radio show reflecting on loneliness, as well as numerous online and collaborative sound projects.

Kristin Reiman (born 1992 Tallinn, Estonia) lives and works in Frankfurt am Main. Reiman is also active as a musician as Man Rei.

About the Artist in Residence Programme ArtNature/NatureArt at Glenkeen Garden

The Crespo Foundation’s artists’ residency programme takes place in Glenkeen Garden, located just outside Ballydehob, west Cork on the edge of Roaringwater Bay.

The aim of the programme is to encourage the development of groups of young artists from Europe and Russia and raise the international profile of their work. The theme of art and nature comes from the location of the residency, the Glenkeen Garden estate. To explore this topic as extensively and as deeply as possible, the Crespo Foundation provides artists with a network of humanities scholars and scientists for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary exchange. The intention is for Glenkeen Garden Residencies to give space, time and inspiration for close collaboration as a team, with the goal of producing innovative works that will then be shown in Frankfurt am Main and other European cities, as well as virtually to a broader public.
