MAECP Open Lecture Series presents:

Lucy Davis, Migrant Ecologies


Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki

Lucy Davis will present a series of initiatives by The Migrant Ecologies Project and talk about how non-human actors, species and materials make their presence felt during the research process and in the final the work. The Migrant Ecologies Project embraces concerned explorers, curious collectors, daughters of woodcutters, miners of memories and art by nature. The project evolves through and around past and present movements and migrations of naturecultures in art and life in Southeast Asia.

Lucy Davis is a visual artist, art writer, Associate Professor and founder of The Migrant Ecologies Project. Her practice encircles animal and plant studies, natural histories, nature in art and visual culture, materiality and memory — primarily but not exclusively in Southeast Asia. From 2005-2016 she was full time faculty at the School of Art Design & Media Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. She will be artist in residence with the Centre for Contemporary Art CCA Singapore in April-May 2017.
