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 nomadic global 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 considered mobility from the perspective of non-human, earthly and extra-terrestrial circulations such as plants, birds, planets and stars.
Presented publicly in an Open Studio event at Gasworks at the end of the residency (23 – 26 May 2019), the collaborative research remains accessible in Gasworks Curatorial Residents’ online research archive. The publicly available Research Archive is organised according to the questions that guided the residency project.
The project included commissions by: 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’ was 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.
