Studio Marina Hulzenga

a spatial design and art studio


Designing spatial experiences that connect and inspire change. Specializing in exhibit and installation design, we translate narrative and knowledge into a variety of immersive spaces through storytelling; inviting others to experience the celebration of histories, listen to the land and its people, and constantly engage the philosophical, conceptual, and social dialogues of our spatial surroundings. Absorbed in collecting and research as a means to creativity, our work focuses on uncovering details and connections that challenge our spatial narratives. In both designing for clients or self-initiated projects, we value in depth research, being guided by process and activating conversations.

ARCHIVE OF HAPPENINGS FROM PRESENT TO PAST: all  project  exhibition  residency  award

HIVE Residency at The FARM Studio

Location: Andore, Rajasthan, India
Curator: Shannon Conney
Participating Artists: Samuel Draper, Simrat Dugal, Shelley Etkin, Jared Gradinger, Claudia Hill, Navtej Johar, Roberto Martinez, Clara Birnbaum Pantzerhielm, and Monique Romeiko

HIVE India felt like a vessel, a vessel carefully hand thrown and beautifully crafted. With much hope, love and energy infused into its skin. But what filled this vessel was yet unknown. Its contents were only revealed by the coming together of the open consciousness of both the artists and the land we met with. The caring and curious energy created by the artists allowed for the exploration of new, even unformed ideas and offerings, giving great space to the present moment. It was an expansion and exchange of consciousness so beautiful and moving, a continuum of collective breath in and out.

Curator’s residency vision:
The concept of the HIVE is to give the opportunity of Time to expand our resources, share in discoveries and generate vibrancy in our own work and those of each other. As we are all engaged in professional contexts and often in a production-based milieu one might find we are lacking in Time for genuine conversations and artistic experimentation and inquisitive exchange. The HIVE offers an environment open source exchange through active research in a non-production atmosphere.”
