Cryptic returns to ArtHouse Jersey, connecting new Scottish audio-visual artists and supporting artist opportunities for Jersey artists in Scotland. SHHE and Konx-om-Pax will be in residence at ArtHouse Jersey in June and at the end of the residency will present a short work-in-progress performance of their upcoming works prior to their premieres at Sonica Glasgow 2024.

SHHE is the alias of the Dundee-based Scottish-Portugese artist, musician and producer Su Shaw. Her artistic practice is influenced by environment and ecology, exploring themes of identity and connection at the intersections of sound, space and liminal states. The Moving Tides is an evocative new project utilising voice and modular synthesiser to craft an immersive, multi-speaker sound experience which navigates the complexities of our relationship to the sea.

Konx-om-Pax (aka Tom Scholefield) is a Scottish electronic musician and graphic artist from Glasgow who has worked with the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Lone, Mogwai, Jamie Lidell and Martyn. He is developing his new Cryptic Commission, Uaxuctum, exploring the shared ways in which electronic music and visual art can be programmed to generate an immersive work where the visual and the auditory feed off one another.

The event will be followed by a discussion with the artists.
