[CANCELLED] The Making of an Institution — Artistic Research. Talk by Alice Miceli (Brazil), Artist-in-Residence

29 Mar 2017, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Artist-in-Residence Alice Miceli will discuss during her talk her long-term research into both social and natural landscapes that have been inflicted by human-induced trauma. Her interests have culminated in the Chernobyl Project (2007-2011) where she documented the exclusion zone around the Chernobyl’s nuclear disaster, an environment that has been deeply affected by invisible radiation. Miceli’s most recent research project titled In Depth (landmines) (2014-ongoing) focuses on photographic representation of landscapes contaminated with unexplored landmines and on the physical position of the photographer’s body within these fields. Within the Artistic Research component of The Making of an Institution, furthers our understanding into Miceli’s research and artistic process that encompasses formal experimentation, archival research, and investigative travels.

This talk is part of the public programme of The Making of an Institution.

The work of Alice Miceli (b. 1980, Brazil) addresses issues of time, memory, and violence through formal experimentations, archival research, and investigative travels. In her projects In Depth (landmines) (2014—ongoing) and Chernobyl Project (2007—2011), she charts the visual, physical, and cultural manifestations of human-induced trauma inflicted on social and natural landscapes. Her exhibition record includes the 5th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, Russia (2016) and 17th Japan Media Arts Festival, Tokyo, Japan (2014).
