Venice Science Gallery: Earth Water Sky residency

Underwater artist Emma Critchley (UK) is the first winner of the three year EARTH WATER SKY residency programme. The jury awarded it to her for ‘the originality and beauty’ of her proposed project which in the words of Professor Carlo Barbante was the most evocative of the Ice Memory project which he leads.

Both Professor Michele Bugliesi, Rector of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, and Science Gallery Venice’s Director Anna Puccio, consider the residency programme a true added value to the developing Venetian Science Gallery. “We deeply thank the Martine et Didier Primat Foundation for the unique opportunity to host the first three year residency for artists of the whole Network”.

A Talk with Genevieve Chua and Emma Critchley

Singaporean Genevieve Chua and Briton Emma Critchley share with the audience their experiences, collaborative process and the new works arising from their participation in an artist-in-residency-exchange (AiRx) programme run by the Singapore International Foundation and British Council, Singapore. The two visual artists, whose practices are rooted in fine-art photography, spent three weeks in each other’s countries, interacting with arts communities, continuing their research and developing new work. This led to new solo and collaborative works presented in an exhibition, Disappearing Moon, in Singapore and the United Kingdom.
