 'Phishing the Landscape' curated by Berlin-based artists Clementine Roy & Catriona Shaw and with nine international artists at Verksmi∂jan, Hjalteyri in Iceland. 'Ridge' is a site responsive sculptural work made from materials, animals and by people inhabiting the landscape of Hjalteyri, Iceland. A participatory gathering invited the local Sheep farmers Club (Saudfjárraektarfélag Skriduhrepps) to dance on the wool to make felt for the installation.
