Claire Zakiewicz is the current artist in residence at Greenpoint’s Mothership NYC. During her residency period Claire will be producing a new series of paintings and writing about the Aesthetics of Imperfection for a publication edited by Andy Hamilton, Professor of Philosophy at Britain’s Durham University. She will also be collaborating with writer, performer and Meisner specialist Dannie Lu-Carr through drawing and performance poetry. For the weekend of the Greenpoint Open Studios Claire will collaborate with the Mothership’s in-house performance artist and shaman Siw Laurent for a live ensemble titled How Salty: a performance about the art of submission and resourcefulness in the unconscious at 6pm on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3. Her painting studio will be open all weekend and throughout July by appointment.
Claire has been living between New York and London since 2013. For more than twenty years she has exhibited and performed regularly throughout the UK, USA and Norway and will be exhibiting in Venice this September for the second time. Her works have been shown at Tate Tanks and Tate Modern (London) for the exhibitions Tweet Me Up, and Label curated by Tracey Moberly and she has undertaken residencies at PointB Worklodge and Bill Young’s Dance studio (New York) and at USF (Bergen). She studied Fine Art in London and Cambridge as an undergraduate before completing a research-based Masters of Fine Art degree where she explored the physical and metaphorical relationships between sound and drawing.
