Collaboration between Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer
Established in 2005
Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer each have distinctive practices—Lucy Skaer as an interdisciplinary, installation artist and Rosalind Nashashibi as a painter and filmmaker—while together they make films under the moniker Nashashibi/Skaer. After meeting in Glasgow, Nashashibi and Skaer began working together in 2005 when they created their first joint work, The Ambassador. Apart from the films they make collaboratively, they also exhibit works from their individual practices together. Jointly, they have created films ranging in subject matter from the historical representation of women, in works of art such as in Why Are You Angry? (2017), to allegories of life and birth, as seen in Lamb (2019).
Rosalind Nashashibi (b. 1973 in Croydon, UK) and Lucy Skaer (b. 1975 in Cambridge, UK) have exhibited as Nashashibi/Skaer with solo exhibtions at S.M.A.K., Ghent (BE); Tate, St. Ives (UK); Musée Matisse, Le Cateau Cambrésis (FR); Musée du Château des ducs de Wurtemberg, Montbéliard (FR); and Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid (ES). Their films have been screened at Documenta 14, Athens (GR) and Kassel (DE), and were shown in various group exhibitions at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (DE); S.M.A.K., Ghent (BE); Tate Modern, London (UK); The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY (US); Tate, St. Ives (UK); Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn (EE); Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA (US) and Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen (DK), amongst others.
