Studio Marina Hulzenga

a spatial design and art studio

Specializing in exhibit and installation design, Studio Marina Hulzenga translates 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, the studio's work focuses on uncovering details and connections that challenge our spatial narratives. In both designing for clients or self-initiated projects, the studio values in depth research, being guided by process and activating conversation.

The Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency was a unique and immersive artistic experience that took place on the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Dawson City. Along with nine other artists and two guides, we embarked on a canoeing adventure in the Canadian north, exploring this territories’ natural and cultural histories and stories through the lens of art. For 17 days we paddled the Yukon River, camping on its banks and creating the most incredible artistic experience; collecting inspiration, building creative relationships, collaborating on many on-site projects, and learning the many lessons the River graciously had to share.

Also presented an artist talk as part of the Riverside Arts Festival at the end of the canoe journey in Dawson City.
