About the curator
Artist/curator/researcher Krien Clevis has developed the concept ‘TRANSITION ZONE’ as part of her Postdoc at the Lector ship Autonomy and Public Sphere in the Arts (AOK) of the Arts Faculty in Maastricht. This concept is an extension of her promotion research. In her thesis ‘LOCVS’ (2013) she investigated the notion and quality of ‘place’, and confronted and contaminated this artistic research with archaeological debates about place. She examined the physical and qualitative characteristics of place, specifically at places with historical meaning. These are changing places, marked by new layers, aspects of time and space that are constantly being overwritten as a process of continuous change. 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. The preliminary investigation for this project was done (May 2015 – May 2016) within the context of the Lector ship AOK and fits within her targets.
