Who is this for?

Are you looking for fresh insight on your artistic research? Do you need to talk through a concept, or receive some honest advice on your project? Or are you simply fascinated by the art made in collaboration with non/human artists?

During the session, you will have a 30-minute consultation with Mari Bastashevski to discuss anything relating to your work: any ideas you may have, or challenges you may be facing. You can expect an honest, invigorating conversation, which leaves you with plenty of food for thought.

About the artist

Mari is an artist, writer, and a lecturer at Kunstakademie in Trondheim, Norway and Wageningen University, Netherlands. Occasionally, she collaborates across disciplines, and performs random acts of journalism. Twice, she's circumnavigated the world by sea.

At the moment, she spends a lot of time thinking through the tripartite relationship between animals, humans, and technology and working on research that explores how emerging technologies of seeing, such as VR, could become sites of field research into said relationships. 

In the past Mari has exhibited with Bonniers Konsthalle, Maison Populaire, Musée de l’Elysée, HKW Berlin, Art Souterrain, Noorderlicht, and has been published in Time Magazine, The New York Times, Courrier International, Le Monde, e-flux, VICE, and a number of other venues.  She has been awarded art residencies at IASPIS Stockholm, and Cité des Art in Paris.
