Artists in Residence Blog


Kelly Zantingh is a visual artist originally from Ontario, working between video, film photography, and books. She has developed a nomadic practice and is based in various places; most recently at a residency in Porto, Portugal before arriving in Nova Scotia.

Her current project examines natural landforms and the surrounding environment as it responds to rapid change, with an emphasis on the stretching and compression of perceived time. Through the use of a stop-motion video, she documents the natural progression of time intercepted by her own actions as a means of altering the movements of the land. The video she is making while at Red Clay records the changes in the nearby body of water in the Bay of Fundy, and its effects on local geology and erosion along the seaside cliffs.
