Tereza Jindrová is a curator and art writer. In general, she is interested in methods of creating curatorial ‘frames’ to layer different interactions between artists, artworks and the public. Recently she has focused on the topic of human-animal relations, environmentalism, rational and irrational aspects of healing, irrational beliefs and magic, and gender stereotypes in the context of artistic creativity.
In the past two years, she curated Alexandra Pirici’s performative project Delicate Instruments of Engagement at National Gallery, Prague; Healing at Czech Centre Berlin; performance project of Barbora Kleinhamplová at Art in General, New York; or Apparatus for a Utopian Image at EFA Project Space, New York.
The residency is realised in context of HICP – Helsinki International Curatorial Programme, a collaboration between Frame Contemporary Art Finland and HIAP.
During the residency in HIAP I want to focus on research connected with my forthcoming shows and program at the Entrance Gallery, an artist-run space I’m collaborating with. I’m especially interested in artistic and curatorial practices in connection with (eco)feminism and environmentalism because these spheres of thinking are often present in the context of Northern Europe.
I’d like to set up a temporary reading group for sharing texts and knowledge about ecology, feminism and human-animal relations. With the assistance of HIAP, I am planning to network with local art professionals – artists, curators, writers to discuss and explore the mentioned topics and themes.
