Having spent 6 weeks at LKV as an artist in residence, Kadie Salmon will hold an Open Studio day on the 16th of June.
Drawing on the city of Trondheim for inspiration, Kadie has spent 6 weeks continuing her ongoing exploration of historic notions of romanticism in relation to landscape, folklore and history. By extracting and re-constructing these notions in a contemporary context, her new body of work seeks to further question the fine line between romanticism and that of idealism, desire and personal fantasy.
During the Open studio, Kadie will be displaying and talking through a body of new drawings created during her time on the LKV residency programme, whilst also showing her series of multiple exposure photographic works taken at midnight across various sites in Trondheim. On her return to London Kadie will continue to develop this series as large format, hand coloured photographs. This new body of work will later be exhibited as part of her solo show at Babel Art Space, Trondheim in 2017.
