Jan is an artist from Korea, currently living in the Netherlands, who joined us for the months of June and July 2017. This has been his second time to the factory, as in March 2016, he travelled the ring road with friends and happened to find himself here in Stöðvarfjörður. After touring the factory with Una, he decided to come back again in the future for creative residency, to be inspired by the nature, and to further work on a continued interest in ambivalence. This is a prevalent theme in Jan´s work, focussing on uncertainty in contradictory moments and feelings.

After some time immersing himself in the landscape, appreciating simplicity and solitude, without the noise of city life and distractions; Jan spent countless hours painting, replicating one significant pattern that has appeared across his works, old and new. Residency at the Fish Factory also offered the space and time for the creation of two large canvas painting, presenting ambivalence in the surroundings and landscape.
