Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host artist Liddy Scheffknecht. Born in 1980 in Dornbirn, Austria, Scheffknecht uses light and shadow as mediums to create her photos and installations. She makes "shadow-paintings" and uses natural light trough windows as much as artificial ones, with help of video projectors. She is specially interested in manifestations of the passing of time, and plays with optic illusion to trouble the viewer’s perception. This way, she creates a surreal ambiance which questions the immobility of photography. Liddy currently lives and works in Wien and will be staying in Studio Amarillo during July 2023.
