Multidisciplinary artist Pippin Frisbie-Calder will spend a month with Waterfall Arts, making art within the framework of her printmaking and studio-based practice, as well as engaging students from Belfast Community Outreach Program in Education (BCOPE) to explore climate change by selecting a locally threatened or extinct species and creating their own unique art projects.
This residency will also provide the artist with space and time to create artwork for a traveling exhibition titled The Future is in Your Hands. Pippin will be designing, carving, and printing thousands of puffins and will offer a printmaking workshop and artist talk to engage participants in concepts of stewardship, human culpability, and climate change.
Pippin’s work seeks to investigate ecosystems and demystify scientific outcomes. By working with biologists and ornithologists, her printmaking explores issues of climate change, extinction, and humanity’s complicated relationship with nature.
