Orcadia: A Fenris and Ragnar Story

We (Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn) will be presenting two events to accompany our work in the exhibition Scotland Small? at the Royal Scottish Academy in two weeks. Here is some information about the events:  

Orcadia: A Fenris and Ragnar Story  
Film screening & Q&A  
Saturday 2 July 2022 
Hawthornden Lecture Theatre | Royal Scottish Academy  
Free | Registration required 
2 – 3pm  

 

Orcadia: A Fenris and Ragnar Story is a short documentary film by Scottish filmmaker Glen Thomson. The film follows artists James Alexander McKenzie and Daniel O’Dempsey as they navigate life on the Orcadian Isles and chronicles their immersion in its rich culture. They discuss the impact Orkney has had on them, and the philosophy behind Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn. Orcadia documents McKenzie and O’Dempsey’s collaborative practice, and the first two acts of the experimental play that they developed during their residency.  

Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn: Act 4  
Live Performance  
Sunday 3 July  
RSA Lower Galleries  
Free | Registration required  
1 – 1:30pm 

Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn will employ their body of work exhibited in Scotland Small? as props, backdrop, and stage for Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn: Act 4. The fourth act, they describe as “a stage act of performing alter egos and experimental performance.” 

Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn is an artist collective consisting of James Alexander McKenzie and Daniel O’Dempsey as abiding contributors and includes anyone that the pair collaborate with when operating as Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn. It is a vehicle for experimentation, collaboration and developing ideas within the realms of fine art, performance art, spoken word, poetry, music, and theatre.

Drawers Off Series 2

Drawers Off is BACK, the show where talented amateur artists get to show the world what they can do in a life drawing competition.

Presented by Jenny Eclair  – The celebratory, fun and encouraging show will once again showcase a broad range of amateur artists as they express themselves and improve their skills, at times using artistic techniques they may not have tried before. Each day they’ll all be aiming their easels at a different near-naked life-model.

Each week 5 artists will start with a blank canvas as they compete over 5 days to create 5 unique pieces. Each day they’ll score each other’s work, and the winner’s creation will be placed in the ‘Drawers Off’ winners gallery. At the end of the week the artist whose work is voted as the best by the group could win up to £1,000.

To apply, all you need to do is click the Etribez link or email the below address.
