It's not even the first of May but we have already welcomed our first artist in residence to Glenfiddich. Joyce Ho flew in from Taipei city yesterday morning. Despite the unfounded warnings of snow displayed at Huntly on my way to collect her at Aberdeen airport Joyce still managed to enjoy a fine warm first day settling into sunny Speyside.
A graduate of the University of Iowa, Joyce is an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis in painting, sculpture and theatre and has exhibited at such venues as Kobe Biennale, Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai, Today Art Museum and Museum of Fine Arts Shanghai. She has worked as a scenic artist with the avant-garde performance group Riverbed Theatre on productions at Taiwan’s National Experimental Theatre and the Avignon-Off Festival in France.
Joyce is the tenth Taiwanese artist to spend a summer in residence at Glenfiddich and once again was selected to join the residency with kind assistance from our long term partners there, IT Park.
