About the curator
Krien Clevis is an artist/curator/researcher (PhD). She is lecturer at the Faculty of the Arts, Maastricht, where she teaches Artistic Research. In 2015/2016 she developed the concept ‘TRANSITION ZONE’ as part of her Postdoc at the Lectoraat Art, Autonomy and Public Sphere (AOK) of the Arts Faculty in Maastricht, an interdisciplinary research project which focuses on artistic research in collaboration with stakeholders and involved parties at the ENCI-area in transformation. This concept is an extension of her promotion research. In her thesis LOCVS (2013) she investigated the notion and quality of ‘place’ – especially in the power of change – and confronted this artistic research with archaeological debates about place. Her research combines historical/archaeological, artistic and personal exploration of locations, with the aim of adding new or alternative meaning to layered places. She is doing this using a relatively new method in the arts, though currently introduced in the fourth field of academia: Artistic Research.
