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.

This map visualises layers of the territory of Alberta we normally never witness. Stripping the map of all common elements such as cities, roads, and waterways, this new map leaves, or rather, adds three layers of Indigenous spaces. Presenting the First Nations reserves, Métis settlements and Treaties within the territory of Alberta tells of an entirely different mapped landscape.

The pigments were made from the natural plant and soil materials of this land, hand painting a map that directly reflects the landscape and the memories it holds.
