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.
The collective was founded in 2019 when McKenzie and O’Dempsey undertook a collaborative artist residency with the Pier Arts Centre in Orkney in partnership with the Royal Scottish Academy awarded through the RSA Residencies for Scotland scheme. During their residency, McKenzie and O’Dempsey developed an experimental play also titled Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn. Collaborating with local musicians for Acts 1 and 2, they exhibited each of their three acts at different venues in Stromness for the Orcadian public during October 2019.
