Svetlana Bailey has recently been selected to undertake a residency with The International Studio & Curatorial Program.
The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) supports the creative development of artists and curators, and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs. Housed in a former factory in Brooklyn, with 35 light-filled work studios and two galleries, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, founded in 1994. ISCP organises exhibitions, events and offsite projects, which are free and open to all, sustaining a vibrant community of contemporary art practitioners and diverse audiences. Over 1,350 artists and curators from more than 80 countries, including the United States have undertaken residencies at ISCP.
Through installation, drawing and in-camera collage, Svetlana Bailey uses fruit to explore the flesh and gender of human embodiment throughout her work. She uses details and enlarging techniques to create new spatial and form/function relationships between fruit and the body.
Bailey is currently working towards a solo exhibition at Artereal Gallery in August 2020.
