Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to welcome Finnish artist Hanna Husberg as recipient of the HIAP/TBG+S Residency Exchange 2015. This residency allows Hanna to spend July and August working from a studio at TBG+S in Dublin.
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and HIAP (Helsinki International Artist Programme) are now entering their ninth year of partnership. Since the partnership began in 2007, TBG+S and HIAP have supported a total of 15 artists and curators from Ireland and Finland to undertake new creative work in the cities of Dublin and Helsinki through an exchange programme. In May and June 2015, Barbara Knezevic spent six weeks at the HIAP residency facility on the Island of Suomenlinna, just outside of the city of Helsinki.
Hanna Husberg (b.1981, Finland) is a Stockholm-based artist. She graduated from ENSB-A, Paris in 2007, and is currently a Phd in Practice candidate at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Through a practice of audio-visual and installation projects she investigates how we perceive, and relate to our environment in times of anthropogenic climate change. Together with Laura McLean she conceived the Contingent Movements Archive and Symposium (Maldives Pavilion, 55th Venice Biennale / Adapting in the Anthropocene, UNESCO, Paris, 2013-14). Other recent projects include Human Meteorology (Galleri Mejan, Stockholm / Chateau de Chamarande, 2012) and Being with (CEEAC, Strasbourg, 2015). Hanna is also a participant of Frontiers in Retreat, a research platform in Multidisciplinary Approaches to Ecology in Contemporary Art coordinated by HIAP, Helsinki.
