Location: Golden Thread Gallery
Sylvia Javén (Finland) is the international artist in residence at the Digital Arts Studios for February and March 2014. DAS are delighted to be able to present Sylvia’s work on Friday the 28th March, at a lunchtime screening, kindly hosted by the Golden Thread Gallery.
Sylvia will show two videos including the ongoing project “Conflict”, which is a poetic video performance about approaching the conflict of Northern Ireland as a foreigner, using landscape and nature as metaphors and “I am a bird now”, an audio visual experimental poem about a traveller, shot in Belfast.
Sylvia Javén’s work often uses nature, her own presence and the landscape to communicate topics of survival, solitude and the tension between indoors/outdoors. She moves between the media of video performance, text, installation and sound in her practice with a focus on poetic, minimalistic storytelling.

The screening will take place in the Golden Thread Gallery on Friday the 28th March at 1pm. Refreshments will be provided. This is a free event and all are welcome.
