From February to April this year, Caroline Doolin will spend six weeks at the HIAP residency facility at the Cable Factory, Helsinki. Caroline Doolin works primarily in narrative moving image with a particular interest in navigating the specific audio-visual constraints of the gallery context. During her residency at HIAP she will research and develop the early stages of a new video installation informed by the status of Suomenlinna island as a UNESCO heritage site. With attentive focus on the particular ecology of Suomenlinna, she aims to explore intricate webs of difference within the everyday; drawing connections between and generating empathy for specific sites, species and organisms.
Kathy Tynan will work from a studio in Paris for three months in 2018. During her residency, Kathy will spend time discerning the recurrent motifs and patterns of the City. She will focus particularly on interventional man-made marks which feel strange or out of place within the urban landscape.www.templebargallery.com/
