October – November 2016 – Residency Artists


We’re delighted to be joined by three artists for this October – December Residency period at Sura Medura. Natasha Russell, Nichola Scrutton and Sumit Sarkar have been in residency since mid October. In their time there so far, the artists have been researching, creating and working with their surroundings. They’ve also had the opportunity to present talks about their work to students at the University of Visual and Performing Arts in Colombo

Keep an eye out on our blog pages for their artist blogs, documenting their experiences whilst out there.

The culmination of their residency will be presented in an exhibition of sound works, land art, installation, print work and video by the Sura Medura Artists, taking place on 26th November:
