Riikka Kuoppala was born 1980 in Helsinki, Finland and currently lives and works in Brussels. She received her M.F.A from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2010. Kuoppala’s practice mainly consists of narrative films and video installations, which portray fictional mental spaces instead of actual events. The characters in her films often use their memories as stories that help them survive an identity crisis or a trauma. Her work has been exhibited at Le Fresnoy—studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Le MAGASIN, Grenoble; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki. Kuoppala is in residence at Triangle April–June 2016.

The intimate scale of this hands-on learning program allows trainees to work very closely with our staff, get to know all our artists-in-residence, and partake fully in all our community activities—including events, outings to exhibitions and cultural institutions, visiting curator talks, public programs and more.

Residency takes place from July 1–August 31, 2016. Artists are provided with a private workspace, accommodation, basic living expenses, material budget and travel. Administrative and peer support is also provided for all participating artists. Triangle’s founding concept and current programs de-emphasize professionalization and specific outcomes, instead allowing artists generous space, context and community within which to focus on their research, ideas and process.

Justin Joshua Davy is an artist and curator based in Cape Town, South Africa. He holds a bachelors degree in fine art from the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and an honors degree in curatorship from the University of Cape Town. Davy works both as a solo artist and as part of the collective Burning Museum on the overlapping themes of the archive and the contested legacies of colonial history. His practice engages with imposed regimes in the making of identity, often employing performance to unravel everyday (neo)-colonial and religious experiences. He has exhibited most recently at the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in Madrid as part of the exhibition Boundary Objects.

Recent screenings include the New York Film Festival – Projections, TIFF Wavelenghts, CPH:DOX, Videobrasil and Lux Salon.
