The first artist in residence that the Loss and Damage Collaboration will host will be Lena Dobowolska and Teo Ormond-Skeaping.
Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond- Skeaping are an artist collaboration from Poland and the United Kingdom working with a combination of photography, artist’s film, virtual reality, installation and research.
Their collaborative artist practice focuses on climate change, including its political ecology, loss and damage, climate-induced migration, slow violence, as well as visual culture’s relationship to the Anthropocene, something which they prefer to call the Capitalocene.
Combining speculative methodologies, like scenario thinking, with documentary investigative practices and participatory storytelling they tell stories that contribute to the act of collective worldbuilding.
Over the course of two years the artistic duo will work to establish the L&DC + AIR and on bringing together policy makers and creative practitioners from both the Global South and North.
