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.

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

As part of an interdisciplinary working group, I created documentation for the project Nesting-Landing by Shelley Etkin

Location: Berlin, Germany
Client: Offensive Tanz für junges Publikum Berlin
In collaboration with: Shelley Etkin, Parvathi Ramanathan, Ludger Storcks, Nicola van Straaten, Doreen Markert, Lydia Baldwin

“We invited a group of children to collectively build a temporary environment that we weave and inhabit together. How can this process of creating and inhabiting a place together make our diverse relationships with home, migration, and coexistence visible? In an interdisciplinary working group, we explored how our (adult) offerings can correspond to the imaginations and worlds of thought of children and open ourselves to their curiosity and needs. What kind of living space could we build together and how can this process playfully deconstruct claims to property and territory? What dreams do we have related to this place and the places in our life?”
