Sara Nanna Jørgensen is an Animation Artist, a Visual Artist from Denmark who stayed with us for one month in February 2017. She works on films and images with her characters. She makes characters with her special materials and her perspective. During her residency, she made three characters inspired by the landscape surrounding Stöðvarfjörður.
She seeks inspiration in dreams, thoughts and memories, she captures impressions, behaviour and moods of people around her and as well from drawings of her surroundings. Then she recreates them. She uses her recreated characters as symbols to act out her thoughts and moods.
The images are a juxtaposition of naturalistic characters and abstract creatures interacting with each other in the setting/stage set. Through implementing poetic fragments from everyday life, she aims to mix symbols, moods and conflicts, all of which relate to the world we inhabit, simultaneously underlining the meaninglessness of life and its conflicts, alongside magical elements and a poetic aesthetic.
