Residencies Studio Sessions: Artist Talk by Alice Miceli (Brazil), Artist-in-Residence

16 Aug 2017, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Studio #01-06, Block 38 Malan Road

In this talk, Artist-in-Residence Alice Miceli will discuss her research on landscapes inscribed with human-induced traumas and how former theatres of war raise issues of visibility, accessibility, and memory. Focusing on two of her major projects—Chernobyl Project (2007–2011), which revolves around the exclusion zone generated by the infamous nuclear disaster and In Depth (landmines) (2014–ongoing), a photographic inquiry into landscapes contaminated with unexplored landmines—Miceli will unravel the multiple methodologies, from archival research and investigative travels to formal experimentation, which frame the traces of trauma in the context of her practice.

The talk will take place in the artist’s studio.

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).
