Major project:

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky is a temporary, collaborative research studio at Gasworks exploring what it means to be a resident in both the art world and the wider geopolitical context of restricted movement and borders. From October 2018 until May 2019, as part of their self-appointed curatorial residency, the curators – alongside invited artists, botanists, astrologers and writers – have been considering mobility from the perspective of non-human, earthly and extra-terrestrial circulations such as plants, birds, planets and stars.

The collaborative research is presented publicly in an Open Studio event at Gasworks at the end of the residency (23–26 May 2019), and it remains accessible on their online research archive (http://gcr.rca.ac.uk). The publicly available Research Archive is organised according to the questions that guided the residency project. With: Xinhao Cheng, Helena Hunter, Mati Jhurry, Romy Kiessling, Marissa Malik, Niccolò Moronato, Fatima Uzdenova and Belinda Zhawi.

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky is part of the Curating Contemporary Art MA Graduate Projects 2019, at the Royal College of Art in partnership with Gasworks. The Gasworks Curatorial Residents are Linnéa Bake, Yalda Bidshahri, Carlie Yixuan Chang, Claudia Contu, Victoria Gyuleva, Jing Jin, and Lika Tarkhan-Mouravi.
