The Counterflows Residency featured Visual artist Janie Nicoll and Composer / performer Annette Krebs who worked together for 8 days in the CCA Creative Lab. They brought together different artforms and also different cultures – Janie is based in Glasgow and Annette in Berlin. This residency is all about process and how the conversation develops, what it is – and isn’t – possible to create in an intense, short burst of time. The film feature extracts from the final performance and interviews with Janie and Annette. They talk about the nuances of working in a new environment, how difficult but ultimately rewarding it is to leave your comfort zone, what the impact questioning your practice and approach to making can have.
