Previous Residencies at Bluecoat

Salma Noor and Sufea Mohamad Noor

Salma Noor and Sufea Mohamad Noor collaborate on experimental ways of making contemporary arts relatable to individuals and communities outside of the arts expert circle. This form of practice is done through through workshops and identifying collaborative processes that would allow participants to further develop their skills. Together, the artists have collectively worked for Assemble and Granby Workshop, Liverpool Biennial, Tate Liverpool as well as Wolstenholme Creative Space.

Salma produces digital collages and site-specific work using found common objects. Her work examines vacant architectural spaces. Sufea produces prints, sculptures and happenings that explore how art can be used as a tool for acquiring knowledge and skills to enrich our daily lives and to understand the mechanisms of our world. She is interested in the cross collaboration between learn.


Jamaican Pulse Residency: Di-Andre Caprice Davis and Leasho Johnson

Bluecoat is delighted to welcome two artists from Jamaica, Di-Andre Caprice Davis and Leasho Johnson, whose work each revolves around the politics of seeing and ownership of the female experience. Invited to the UK in partnership with the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and New Local Space, Kingston, Jamaica. The artists will undertake a two week residency in Liverpool hosted by Bluecoat, from 27 June - 10 July.

Di-Andre Caprice Davis was born in Kingston, Jamaica. She often uses digital techniques in her work, as well as new technologies, such as animation and digital image manipulation. Davis uses collaging techniques to transform still images and video into looping and hypnotic GIFs. She currently lives and works in Kingston.

Check out Davis' tumblr page to see her artwork.

Leasho Johnson is a painter and graphic designer, whose work is strongly influenced by the contradictions he experienced living and growing up in Jamaica. His paintings, which combine a pop-art aesthetic with cartoonish figures and realistic imagery, are a social commentary that allow him to break down what he sees as contentious and disturbing issues. In his own words, Johnson is a 'Jamaican Contemporary Artist'.

Rosalind Nashashibi

Rosalind Nashashibi works with film, sculpture, print and photography. Her films, in particular, reveal the rhythms and patterns of everyday life and explore the boundaries between reality and fiction. Working in 16mm film, her early works focused on real situations, but did not reveal stories about her subjects, rather, she is fascinated by the rituals played out by social groups and the individual's place within the society. 

Nashashibi studied at Sheffield Hallam University and Glasgow School of Art.  She has exhibited widely and solo shows include Tate Britain, London (2004); Kunsthalle, Basel (2004); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2007); Presentation House, Vancouver (2008); ICA, London and Bergen Kunsthall, Norway (2009); Murray Guy, New York (2013); and Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp (2013). In 2003 Nashashibi was the first woman to be awarded the Beck’s Futures Art Prize. In 2007 she exhibited as part of Scotland + Venice at the 52nd Venice Biennale. In 2014 she was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Visual Arts Award.
