Throughout November 2018, I will take part in the Helsinki International Curatorial Programme (HICP), co-organised by Frame Contemporary Art Finland and the HIAP Helsinki International Artist Programme. The result of its selection came few weeks ago and my application was selected among other four selected curators/artists for this year HIAP residency programme.
During my HICP residency at HIAP, I will undertake a curatorial research project questioning the contemporary art practices related to ecological and environmental issues. My research focuses on “forest,” “paper,” and how these relate to contemporary art practices. The main question is what kind of criticality and practices examine the aforementioned issues within the contemporary art. The research will involve studio and site visits, as well as archival research. I expect a series of discussion and public events as the outcome of this research.
