This residency supports an emerging visual artist based in Scotland and is generously supported by The Bridge Awards.
Rhona Mühlebach received her first degree (a BA in Cinema) from the University of Art and Design in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2014. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s Master of Fine Art course in 2017. Describing the transition in her practice from a traditionally narration-based cinema into a fine art practice of video, audio and text, she has stated that ‘My cinema background inspires the formal choices I make in my work. Nature and science documentaries and how we discover the world through them, have been very influential… I manipulate the forms and technical traditions of TV documentaries and big-production movies in order to create uncanny versions of them.’
At Cove Park Rhona will continue to explore her attraction to and interactions with animals, plants and landscape. The residency will provide the time to experiment and develop new projects, potentially focussing her research upon Loch Long.
