Lichen Kelp studio

During her studio, Lichen will work towards Unconformity Festival 2020. With her own residency program, Forum of Sensory Motion, Lichen will travel to Tasmania, exploring the West Coast for 2 weeks in Feb 2020 with artists Jannah Quill, David Haines and Joyce Hinterding. The works will be based around experimental future technologies that can be harnessed to recontextualise the landscape of Queenstown.

Lichen will also work on a project called  ‘E skin’. It is an interactive electronic textile based on cuttlefish skin, which operates as a dazzling invisibility cloak and investigates the act of camouflage as a political practice. The textile will be developed into a wearable costume for performance.

Lichen Kelp’s practice combines performance chemistry – photography, sculpture and performance with curating travelling residencies. In her solo work, she explores chemical reactions, colour chemistry, transformation and phase states. In the group missions, she presents improvised dynamic (performance/dance/music/video) and kinetic (sculptural/ immersive) works resulting from hive-mind thinking and place-based learning while co-living on the move.
