Artist’s Statement & Bio:
Vatnið (For the Lake) is an installation exploring memory and longing and the attempts that one makes to relive the places of the past. Sound recordings that have been isolated become repetitive mantras, yet the distortion of the voices create a distance and a desire for clarity that cannot be attained. Collected artifacts such as beach glass, stones and shells are manipulated through physical and digital interventions. These objects become unfamiliar and skewed from their original state. The viewer is free to move through the installation and to allow the various objects and sounds to inform them, with the evocation of the past in a present space.
Signy Holm is in her third year at the Alberta College of Art + Design studying drawing. She works primarily in performance, new media and sculpture. She is currently the director of HORSE CLUB, a student-run club dedicated to the facilitation of media arts, as well as a member of The Pidgin Collective, a student group focused on writing and critical discourse. Signy Holm lives and works in Calgary, Alberta.
