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 art created in collaboration with non/humans, placed in the virtual reality?

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 a visual artist who 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. Currently, 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 did a photography work that became a result of extensive online and field investigations, and a collage of documents, photographs, and texts that explore the role of visual presentation in creating and sustaining conflicts within the ideological status quo. Next to her artisitc interventions, Mari has been publishing her work exepnsively in such issues as Time Magazine, The New Yorks Times, Le Monde, e-flux, VICE, and number of other venues. She has also been awarded art residencies at IASPIS Stockholm, and Cité des Art in Paris.
