DRAÍOCHT INCUBATE is a new series of short studio residencies for emerging, early career artists, curators and collectives who wish to have time and space to research, test new ideas, and develop new work. We are delighted to announce four new Incubation artists whose diverse practices chime with Draíocht’s interest in interdisciplinary practice; visual culture and new technologies; socially engaged and collaborative practices; visual arts practice for children and young people.

Ella Bertilsson and Ulla Juske are a Swedish-Estonian artist duo based in Dublin. They are interested in gathering narratives that explore the boundary of fact and fiction in relation to specific communities or places. Interviews and conversations with people working in various professions become a catalyst for developing installations that are exploring the relationship between time and memory, place and identity.  During their Incubate Residency, Ella and Ulla are audio-recording stories and memories of people who live and work in Blanchardstown. The project is evolving around cultural identity where collective memory and oral history stands in focus.
