    Art Photography from Glasgow School of Art (2015) and more recently her MFA from Valand Art Academy (2020).

  • Michele Brody

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2022

    Michele Brody is a mixed-media environmental artist based in The Bronx. Her work is inspired by the range of communities she has come in contact with while living and working as an artist-in-residence throughout the United States and abroad. Her practice is informed by a desire to understand how we manage the constant state of entropy we live in, and the ephemeral qualities of memory and experience within the constant flux of life. During her time at Hospitalfield she plans to focus on her writing as she prepares to publish books documenting two long-term projects. These include: a series of travelogues she has been writing since 1998 when she first started working as an artist-in-residence in France. The second is an interactive community-based project of sharing tea and stories titled “Reflections in Tea.”

  • Paula Lopez Zambrano

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2022

    Taking the form of exhibitions, screenings, public programmes, residencies and texts, Paula Lopez Zambrano’s research centres on the relationship between curatorial practice and theory. Zambrano is working within the intersections of post-colonial, de-colonial, feminist and queer studies, looking into strategies of disruption, resistance and re-enactment within performance, moving image and sound art. These approaches combine interests in philosophy, art theory and contemporary art, focusing on notions of embodiment, materiality and ontology.

    Zambrano has developed a strong interest in time and temporality, conceiving the accidental, discontinuous and counter-temporal as modes of curatorial research.
