A temporary monument for the hidden sheep of Skagi, audio-visual performance collaboration between Sabina Maselli and Erkki Veltheim, NES artist residency, Skagastrond, Iceland.
NES artist residency, Skagastrond, Iceland 2012
Set at the Biopol industrial freezer of Skagastrond, a small fishing town in Northern Iceland, this work was a response to the burial of scores of sheep under snow in a storm in 2012. The work follows the 'archeology of movement' traced by the sheep's journeys through the landscape, and the intimacy of the relationship between the sheep farmers and their flocks. The ice, in a constant state of flux, represents the movement of sheep through time and space.
