Leeds (UK) based artist Rebecca Jones will be the first ever artist-in-residence at pocagallery!
She will be guest artist from 13th of August until 13th of September. With only a couple of weeks before her very much anticipated arrival, I want to use this opportunity to wish her a great time. Rebecca will be updating the progress of her stay in this blog. She will also be using the large glass windows to display her works so please come and have a look! The end of the residency will culminate in a public event at the gallery, so watch this space for more details.
“I find the scoring of events enthralling – this loss and gain through translation of one medium to another creates intriguing material. Material researched will be further removed and worked upon due to the cultural, linguistic and artistic differences a Leeds based artist will inevitably discover when working in Bilbao. I often use paper to construct scores from the sound material. Given the opportunity I would like to take advantage of the window space within pocagallery, using light as a catalyst for the score. Relating the continuous nature of the festival, the score will operate by day and by night. I would like to experiment with wax, (kozo) paper and local food within the notation.” www.rebeccajanejones.com
