In February 2019 Cove Park was awarded funding from British Council Scotland and Creative Scotland to develop a new residency programme produced in collaboration with partners based in EU nations. The aim of this programme is to maintain and develop cultural partnerships between Scotland and these nations at a pivotal moment in the cultural landscape of Europe. More information on this programme and our partners is available here.
Based in Sweden, Ida Lindgren works with film and photography. In her short films she combines existing documentary and historical material with her own images. Thematically, Lindgren often focusses upon closed environments: both physical places, such as monasteries or hospitals, and isolating states such as grief or mental illness.
This residency is made possible with support from the Swedish Arts Council.
