Artists at Work: Marius Ritiu and Marta Fišerová Cwiklinski

Marius Ritiu will be in conversation with Kathleen Forde, Artistic Director of Borusan Contemporary in Istanbul, about his recent work which focuses on cosmology, the scale of the universe and the alchemical transformation of everyday objects.

Marta Fišerová Cwiklinski will present her past projects as well as a new project in progress titled The Fourth Greenhouse. Her work highlights the intersection of personal stories, history, the passage of time, and finally their reconstruction by way of storytelling. The Fourth Greenhouse focuses on the enclosure of natural and manmade forms to create an artificial paradise.

Artists at Work: Emily Floyd and Esther Hovers

For Artists at Work, Emily Floyd will launch her new print edition Female Orgasm: a codex of sorts, after Ursula K Le Guin, a typographic response to Le Guin’s invented Kesh language and the term BANHE, meaning “acceptance, inclusion, insight, understanding; female orgasm. To include; to comprehend; to have orgasm (female).” The project belongs to a group of works by Floyd that retrieve Le Guin’s language from an indefinitely deferred future, activating its revolutionary desire in the present. This edition is a collaboration with Experimental Jetset and is produced by Negative Press, with a text supplement by Anneke Jaspers.

Esther Hovers will speak about her photographic practice, as well as her work in progress entitled The Traveling Salesman. She will share her process for this project, which she has developed during her residency at ISCP.

This program is supported, in part, by, Australia Council for the Arts, Creative Victoria, Edward Steichen Award Luxembourg, Hartfield Foundation; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M.
