Major project:

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky is a collaborative and interdisciplinary project taking place at Gasworks, London. A group of international curating students has initiated the first curatorial residency at Gasworks to run alongside the institution’s long-established international artist residency programme. Over an eight month period the curators-in-residence are transforming Gasworks’ Participation Space into a temporary research studio, questioning what it means to be a resident in both the art world and the wider geopolitical context of restricted mobility.

Engaging with artists, botanists, astrologers, writers, and a constellation of other constituents, the project proposes new ways of encountering both human and non-human journeys. The Open Studio between 23–26 May 2019, will showcase to the public the newly commissioned works and research by seven invited artists: Xinhao Cheng, Helena Hunter, Mati Jhurry, Romy Kießling, Marissa Malik, Niccolò Moronato and Fatima Uzdenova. Offering a multiplicity of perspectives upon patterns of human and non-human movement, the project embodies both collective research and speculation.

Info

  • Jing Jin is a curator and a writer who will graduate with a Masters degree from the Royal College of Art in Curating Contemporary Art in 2019. Jing is interested in experience-based exhibitions which create consensus among a general audience while encouraging dissensus and different interpretations. She hopes to transcend the divisions between different cultures, nations and backgrounds with the power of narrative. In believing in the equal power relationship between the narrator and the receiver, she attempts to explore the potential meaning of contemporary curating, using it as a platform to reflect diverse experiences and thinking processes.

    Jing has plenty experience working with artists, galleries and museums. She will be based in China after her graduation and will continue her writing practice in the future.
