June 2017 Visual artist and composer Hee-Seung Choi worked on the “public image” of Ida, based on the book of Gertrude Stein and the mountain massive Ida that is located in Crete, while music theater performer Lieneke Pisters continued her research on “Energy” at the ResidenceSEA in Heraklion, Crete.
In March 2017, Brazilian poet Rafa Carvalho came to the ResidenceSEA in Heraklion. His project is focused on the sea, so we had lots to talk about. At the end of his stay he made an amazing and long performance. Rafa took all of us in the audience on a travel with an old sailor, on a travel of life, on a travel into the stories of the sea. It was a truly beautiful evening.
The presentation of Jörg Laue and Esther Ernst I enjoyed so much, and all the time we spent together remains such a wonderful memory. At another place I wrote all about their presentation. So, I keep it short here.
The ResidenceSEA is not only a place that inspires the artists that come to stay and work, but also it inspires me – every time I go there. It is so close the sea, to the water, and sometimes the waves touch the windows. Then there is this wonderful light all day long and the big space inside. Beyond all that I love what we are doing as a volunteer team at the ResidenceSEA. Now, this is the place where to leave some pictures that I have taken around our fantastic ResidenceSEA.
In May 2016, Caitlin Harder and Tomoe Tsutsumi stayed and worked at the ResidenceSEA. Their installation “SPIRITUS” was such a wonderful and inspiring experience as well as all the talks with Caitlin. Here are a few pictures from the presentation at the ResidenceSEA.
