Zodiak – Center for New Dance and HAM have invited six dance artists or artist groups, selected through an open call, to work at Tennispalatsi’s HAM Corner. The residency will take place during HAM’s Dance! – Movement in the Visual Arts 1880–2020 exhibition, which depicts dance, dance-like movement, and corporeality in visual arts. Through the artists-in-residency, dance becomes a concrete part of the exhibition.
Various professionals in dance and other arts will be working in the residency. In their work, the audience may find relations with the exhibition’s themes of movement and corporeality. Two-week residencies will run from 5 April to 26 June 2022. The work is coloured by an open relationship with the audience and interaction with the surrounding city space.
Ham Corner provides space for artistic experiments tied in with the exhibition and interaction with the city space. Big windows make the residency space half-public, providing the audience and passers-by an opportunity to observe the artists at work.
The selections were made by a team including Harri Kuorelahti, Artistic director of Zodiak; Heidi Mikkola, Curator of Education at HAM and choreographer Sara Grotenfelt. The following artists and artist groups will be working in HAM Corner space during the spring and summer.
