Residents / Interdisciplinary Residency May 2022

  • Agnieszka Mastalerz

    Interdisciplinary Residency May 2022

    Young female artist based in Warsaw, Poland. While working mainly with video, installation, and performance, she focuses on mechanisms of control and processes influencing and exploiting an individual. She uses her poetic visual language to analyse restrictive rules established within intimate relationships, communities, states, or companies, and towards the natural environment.

    Graduate of the Studio of Spatial Activities by Mirosław Bałka at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (2018), visiting student of Candice Breitz and Eli Cortiñas at Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig (DAAD scholarship for 2019/20), previously of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin at the HFBK in Hamburg (2017/18). She also holds a degree in cultural studies from the University of Warsaw (2015).

    Her works were presented in Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Starak Family Foundation in Warsaw (2019), Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Fondation Hippocrène in Paris (2018), Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (laureate of the 16. Hestia Artistic Journey Competition, 2017), and Otwock Studio (2016). At the beginning of 2020 Agnieszka was a resident of AiR Futura, Prague.

    In Hospitalfield Agnieszka Mastalerz will develop her idea of a performance based on an intimate relation between people who make an effort to rescue one another from an approaching crisis. The work draws mainly from an essay by Zygmunt Bauman: From Pilgrim to Tourist – or a Short History of Identity.

  • Alexis Hudgins

    Interdisciplinary Residency May 2022

    Alexis Hudgins’ practice co-opts methods used in the production of reality TV to generate new forms through installation, video, performance and writing. Using her experience as a producer for reality television and artist Paul McCarthy, her work considers the often overlooked workers, practices, and sites of labor behind the production of both reality television and contemporary art—each requiring a distinct set of labor skills. She is currently living in London while finishing her dissertation for a PhD in art history, theory and criticism with a concentration in art practice at University of California, San Diego.

  • Joanna Acevedo

    Interdisciplinary Residency May 2022

    Joanna Acevedo is writer living and working in New York City. She is an MFA Candidate in Fiction at New York University. She received her BA in Literary Studies and BFA in Illustration from the New School in 2019.
    Her writing deals with the intersection between sex, gender, and mental illness. Her novel, Charlieland, is about obsession, forgiveness, and love for the Tinder generation in New York City. Her work has been seen in Seventh Wave Magazine, Flying Island Literary Journal, Barnhouse Literary Journal, and others. She currently teaches fiction and poetry at New York University and is a 2020-2021 NYU Goldwater Fellow.

  • Lisette Frimannslund

    Interdisciplinary Residency May 2022

    Lisette Frimannslund is a visual artist from Bergen, Norway, now based in The Netherlands. She holds a MSc in Industrial Design Engineering from the TU Delft (2004) and a BFA from The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (2014).

    Her main focus lies in the connections between perception, memory, place and movement. She combines elements of photography, drawing, writing and painting; sometimes in the form of an itinerary; a part fact, part fiction travelogue through time, space, memory or mind.

    Currently moving towards making artist books, time at Hospitalfield will be spent on two publications where both words and image play a role.
