New artist in residence at Barn

A German Glasgow-based artist has swapped the west coast for Deeside, taking up residency at Banchory’s Woodend Barn.

Torsten Lauschmann will embark on an artistic residency at Woodend Barn, developing the new work, Matter in the Wrong Place.

From November 2 the venue will be transformed into an open visual lab and exhibition, where the artists will produce, test and present the work for all to drop by.

The work will explore play, failure and mistakes as creative potential through projections and both static and animated objects.

The result of the residency will be performed/screened in conjunction with an evening performance of another work, Inconsistent Whisper on November 11.

This performance will also feature the Red Note Ensemble, and other local musicians.

Woodend Barn Director, Nicola Henderson, said: “This is a very exciting project for Aberdeenshire. The work being developed here is in direct response to this area and community, and the performance aspect with Red Note Ensemble will be premiered here before travelling to Huddersfield Contemporary Arts Festival – rather a coup for Deeside!”

Lauschmann will also be joined in residence by Charlie Hammond,
