About the Artist:
Va Residency hosts Dutch artist Eamonn Harnett in January and February 2016. Eamonn Harnett (b. 1989) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam and recently finished his residency at De-Ateliers, Amsterdam. Eamonn constructs ways of connection with the natural world within a moment of ecological crisis. By researching spiritual believe systems and ritual practices he aims to replenish the natural world with a sacredness that he feels has been lost.
In his tow-months stay at Va Residency, he spent two weeks with Bakhtiari nomads in Masjed Soleiman to follow his projects about nature and rituals and Nomads’ lifestyle in Iran.
