Minna Pöllänen is a Finnish visual artist living and working in Helsinki and London. Pöllänen’s practice combines sculpture, photography, installation and performance, and her works are often site-specific. The focus of her work is on the politics of space, the act of looking, and more recently, on the economic and societal structures related to market society. She explores these issues through domestic objects and architectural forms. Pöllänen holds an MA (2011) in Fine Art Photography from London College of Communication, and is in residence at Triangle from July – September, 2015.

Nadim Abbas is a visual artist from Hong Kong. His work explores technologies of perception, culminating in the construction of complex set pieces where objects exist in an ambiguous relationship with their own image, and bodies succumb to the seduction of space. He studied sculpture at the Chelsea College of Art and comparative literature at the University of Hong Kong. Abbas is in residence at Triangle from June–October 2015.

Anne Liu is a speculative technologist, artist, lecturer, designer, and researcher. Interfacing the body with the spheres of architecture, prosthetics, and perception, she searches for the epiphanies linking scientific innovation with design fictions to catalyze revelations on a technologically mediated existence. Liu continually seeks to discover the unexpected, through playful experimentation, intuition, and speculative storytelling.

Most recently she completed her tenure as a researcher at Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, where she developed the unit in Sensory Mediation, exploring how information visualization, augmented reality, and other emerging technologies can be harnessed to extend the human sensorium to redefine spatial experience. Liu has a B.A. from Dartmouth College, and received a Masters of Architecture degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She will be continuing her explorations at the Media Lab at MIT this fall and will be in residence at Triangle from June–August 2015.

This spring Triangle invites you to our studios to view works-in-progress and engage directly with the artists whose projects span drawing, installation, painting, pedagogy, performance, photography, sculpture, video and more.

Elina Aho’s drawings and paintings are multidisciplinary and experimental in their approach, emphasizing the physical event and action of mark-making, its gestures and traces.

Greatly influenced by the context of her hometown of Urfa, Turkey, Sinem Dişli’s photography and site-specific installation considers the delicate cycle of life and interruption of it.

Tamar Ettun Moving Company is a group of dancers and actors who perform repetitive strenuous actions based on artist Tamar Ettun’s sculptures. Join them for an experiential movement workshop focusing on empathy.

Marley Freeman’s studio will be transformed every hour on the hour, as art handlers, students, and curators choose and install new selections of her paintings.

Kenya (Robinson)’s artistic alter ego CHEEKY LaSHAE hosts a special karaoke cocktail hour with a performance that muddles the boundaries between audience and performer.

Shane Aslan Selzer shares recent videos and collaborative projects that develop micro-communities where artists can expand on larger social issues such as exchange, critique and failure.

Be sure to join us for special kickoff and closing events: Friday, May 1 at 4:30 pm karaoke and performance by Kenya (Robinson). Sunday, May 3 at 5 pm participatory movement workshop with Tamar Ettun and collaborators Mor Mendel and Sabrina Shapiro.

Triangle is partnering with the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program for joint open studios at 20 Jay Street, so also be sure to stop by Suite 720.
