|“…Become like water my friend.” – Bruce Lee
“Smooth space is filled by events or haecceities, far more than by formed and perceived things. It is a space of affects, more than one of properties. It is haptic rather than optical perception. Whereas in striated forms organize a matter, in the smooth materials signal forces and serve as symptoms for them. It is an intensive rather than extensive space, one of distances, not of measures and properties.” – Gilles Deleuze. The Smooth and the Striated
“Orkney storytellers used to describe with exquisite imaginary the town of Finfolkaheem at the bottom of the sea.” – Ernest W. Marwick. The Folklore of Orkney and Shetland
“…our island home is doomed. In a few short ages the lobster and
crab will crawl on our cold hearthstones; whales and fishes will disport above where our chimney tops now reach; seaweeds and limpets will grow on our gravestones, and our graves will be nowhere. But our dust will be safe in that most glorious of all sepulchers – the mighty ocean – on which “time writes no wrinkle” – Denisson. 1893 address to the Orkney Natural History Society
OCEAN, as a theme, is not a limitation, but an opportunity to desolve boarders and bondaries, to”become like water”, to submerge a rigid landmass, to look at OCEAN as a way of action, philosophical paradigm, world of folklore, post-human ecology, or as a mass of water

|WALKING THE WALK

Progression is always the reason of doing something. It sounds perfectly right. However, sometimes, even a walk for exercising the body and relaxation, a destination is necessary for some people. What can be actually satisfied by setting such a target or other countable check points?
The philosophy of Qigong is inspiring. A wisdom of recognizing the force and flow, not really the movement, allows us to realize what is truly natural for each unique body. Can we walk the walk with similar attitudes? And be able to respond to the surroundings with authenticity? Learning how to achieve the latter was …..more
Douce Mirabaud, Papay artist in residency arrived to Papay from Paris to work on land art project
Rikke Benborg – Papay Gyro Nights Artist in Residency Papey Listskjul / Papay Arts Centre, Orkney
For the last two years we were proud to present artists’ works at Papay Gyro Nights Festivals and now very happy to see Rikke Benborg in Papa Westray
Rikke Benborg is a visual artist living in Copenhagen, working in the field of film and video. Her work deals with notions of perception, the logic of dreams and the vastness of the unconscious mind. Attracted to everything that appears out of the ordinary, she relates her work to both a filmic and a theatrical tradition. She constructs space and narrative through investigations of the tableaux and the dramaturgy of form.
During her stay on Papa Westray she will be making costumes celebrating the beautiful, the grotesque and the mythical, as well as exploring solitude and transformation. She will start a film log documenting experiments with the natural elements, and reflections on the physical and geographical environment – ideas and records, which at the same time will serve as visual starting points for future projects.
