Artist AnnaMaria Kardos' 'micro-residency' at the Institute

The Institute recently hosted a 'micro-residency' by artist AnnaMaria Kardos, the results of which are now on display.

International London based artist AnnaMaria Kardos made new site-responsive installations during a micro-residency at the UCL Institute of Archaeology.

  • Being of a temporary nature each setting negotiates institutional mechanisms by injecting a playful layer to structure, instructions and the otherwise standard layouts. The chair installations comment with humour on everyday routines and the workplace agenda.

AnnaMaria investigates educational, corporate and public settings. Working across media and functional spaces her site-related interventions and sculptures critically engage with issues rooted in the institutional context. Looking beyond the veneer of how we manoeuvre, she references behaviour, routines and decision making - inseparably with a layer of humour.

AnnaMaria initiates institutional residencies for her on-going series of installations. Her work has been nominated for art prizes and exhibitions.
