Ulla Juske (EST/IRE) has been collaborating with Ella Bertilsson (SWE/IRE) since her postgraduate studies at the Fine Art Media department ‘Art in the Digital World’ at NCAD and has continued to do so over the last two years.

Their practice is strongly associated with narrative-based interpretations that explore boundaries between fact and fiction and challenges the perception of time in relation to a specific community, place or setting. This notion is closely related to memory and how it intertwines and changes with time. Interviews and conversations with people connected to the subjects they are investigating are crucial to the research and become a catalyst for developing new work.

They produce site-specific audio-installations where the location mirrors the subject matter, which enables the audience to experience a setting outside the confines of a gallery.

Juske and Bertilsson undertook a residency from July-Sept 2016 with the Association of Icelandic Artists (SIM) in Reykjavik, Iceland. The same year, they received Kulturkontakt Nord’s Mobility Award. Both artists are members of the Black Church Print Studio in Dublin.
