Laura Cemin is a Helsinki-based Italian artist active in the fields of visual and performing arts. Her work, often presented in galleries and non-traditional performance spaces, brings together elements of performance, writing, and temporality with the intention of testing the boundaries between dance and visual art. She received a Master in Fine Arts (2019) from Umeå Art Academy and holds a degree in Ballet and Contemporary dance (2011).
While in residency, I will extend my ongoing research on the intersection between language and movement by orienting my practice towards larger-scale and collaborative projects. In the spring and summer, I worked on a group performance titled “How the land lies” presented during OpenArt Biennial, Örebro (SE), and a duo exhibition “How to tame a wild tongue”, that opened in Tallinn (EE) in July. Both projects were created in collaboration with Oslo-based artist Bianca Hisse.
Laura Cemin’s residency is part of the HIAP Residency Programme for Finnish and Finland-based artists and art professionals.
