Kelly Akashi
From self-consuming flames of dripping wax candles to the ephemeral light filtering through blown glass objects, Kelly Akashi’s (Headlands Artist in Residence, 2019) sculptures often exist in a perpetual state of metamorphosis. Even hands cast in bronze seem poised to caress or to beckon if only given a moment.

During her residency at Headlands, Akashi will continue exploring notions of transformation through observation of the Headlands landscape and its geological and biological changes. The resulting research will inform new photographs and sculptures that will be shared through Project Space.

Anna Fitch & Banker White
For Anna Fitch & Banker White (Headlands Artist in Residence, 2019), filmmaking is a social act. The duo regard the subjects of their documentaries as collaborators—a unique relationship that ultimately pushes both parties beyond their comfort zones and creates something wholly different than what would have been possible individually.

During their residency, Fitch & White will be working on their multiplatform documentary, “Heaven Through the Backdoor.” Told through the stories of Yolanda Shae, a close friend of the filmmakers’, the film blends intimate documentary footage with cinematic interpretations to explore the emotional complexities surrounding the death of those closest to you, and of facing one’s own mortality.

Project Space is located on the third floor of Building 944 and is currently accessible only by stairs.
