Individual residencies / Olot


From Monday, 21 October 2024 to Monday, 28 October 2024



Anna Irina Russell is a resident visual artist at La Escocesa and previously at Hangar. Her art uses sculpture and installation as the foundation for speculating on non-hegemonic communication processes. In recent years, she has worked with soft materials and inflatable membranes, exploring a specific communication process some animals use, inflating or expanding a membrane to communicate or protect themselves from danger.

She has a degree in Fine Arts from the UB (2015), where she also did a master in Sound Art (2018). She has had solo shows at Écart (Canada), Bombon Projects (Barcelona) and, in 2022, she won the Miquel Casablancas award. She currently has works at La Panera in Lleida and has just published an art book with Brillo publishers. Her work has been displayed at: Arts Santa Mònica, MACBA, CCCB, La Casa Encendida, Fundació Brossa, Blueproject Foundation, Fundació Suñol, Can Felipa, Cityart (Milan), Westwerk (Hamburg), among others.


While at Faberllull, Anna Irina Russell and Joan Rotger Julià will be working together, comparing play and the fold as examples of rifts in reality and, therefore, places with the possibility of taking new shapes.

Her research on the idea of the fold will be developed through the conjunction of experimenting with poetic language and physical work with fabric. Gathering, folding, sliding and overlapping will be some of the movements that will serve to explore the limits of this relationship with play.

One of the questions they will ask is how this play stretches the limits of the relational space, meaning how relationships between people and space are diluted/deformed/transformed, with the fold as the material and metaphorical location of that fact.
