About this event
Agi was selected as one of the 2015 3Package Deal artists, run by the City of Amsterdam. This means she’ll be living at ClinkNOORD as an Artist-In-Residence (AIR). ClinkNOORD is one of the locations where artists who win the 3Package Deal price can reside.
The aim of the 3Package Deal is to encourage and assist exceptional talent with affordable living and working spaces, development budget and a network. Throughout her time at Clink Agi Haines will be working to develop her artistic practice and create new bodies of work. Whilst there aren’t any specific events planned with Agi right now, keep an eye out for her around the hostel and she’ll be more than happy to have a chat!
About the artist
Agi Haines’ work is focused on the design of the human body. How might people respond to the possibilities of our body as another everyday material and how far can we push our malleable bodies while still being accepted by society?
After completing her masters in the Design Interactions department at the Royal College of Art, she is now undertaking PhD research at Transtechnology Research, funded by Plymouth University. This research sits within a transdisciplinary department called Cognovo – a large scale Marie Curie funded ITN exploring cognitive innovation. Working amongst various artists and scientists who are all focused on creativity and cognition, her inspiration comes from the weird and wonderful things that exist inside us. Questioning how our morbid curiosity for the viscera of life might affect the future of design, not only for the environment but also for us as sentient sacks of flesh within it?
