Villa Eläintarha Artists' Residence

Villa Eläintarha Artists' Residence Villa Eläintarha is an artists' residence for professional artists working in Helsinki. Villa Eläintarha is an artists’ residence maintained by the City of Helsinki.

It is principally intended for foreign nationals and for Finnish artists permanently resident abroad. Eläintarha residencies are available both to artists visiting Helsinki as guests of local organisations and to artists working independently. Artists from all branches of the arts are encouraged to apply. Residency durations may vary from one week to two months, depending on the needs of the artist. With the residency programme, the City of Helsinki seeks to promote the mobility of artists and collaboration and networking between local arts organisations and artists from abroad. In the application process priority is given to community-oriented arts projects and projects who bring art and culture to areas beyond the city centre. More Information:

Helsingin kaupungin ylläpitämä Eläintarhan huvilan taiteilijaresidenssi on suunnattu pääasiassa ulkomaalaisille ja ulkomailla vakinaisesti asuville suomalaisille taiteilijoille. Eläintarhan residenssi on avoinna sekä taiteilijoille jotka tulevat Helsinkiin paikallisten yhdistysten vieraaksi että itsenäisesti työskenteleville taiteilijoille. Huvilan alakerrassa on yleisölle avoin, pysyvä porvariskotinäyttely. Näyttely esittelee huvilan historiaa 1800-luvun lopulta lähtien ja kertoo myös koko Linnunlaulun huvila-alueen historiasta. Näyttelyn kolme huonetta on sisustettu viime vuosisadan vaihteen tyyliin, eletyn elämän jälkiä kätkemättä. Näyttelyssä voit tutustua historialliseen materiaaliin ja aistia vanhan talon tunnelmaa. Ennakkotilauksesta ryhmät saavat esittelyn huvilassa. Tiedustelut Satu Sirén

Leah Beeferman

Our artist in residence Leah Beeferman is an artist from New York, but has been living and working in Finland for the past year. She is currently developing on a, large, ongoing body of work: digital prints, videos, and texts using images and videos of, and ideas about, the Finnish landscape.

About the work, she writes:
"The project was initially inspired by a theory in quantum physics which states that pure emptiness is not actually empty, but quite dense and active. I wanted to explore what these “scientific” terms, emptiness and density, mean in terms of the Finnish winter landscape; to “measure” how empty and dense that landscape is; to locate the density in the “emptiness” of dark, snow, ice, and cold.
But I am also focused on how these questions relate to photography, abstraction, landscape/environment, issues of representation, and observation and experience--- both my own, and the future viewers of the work."

Curator Ulla Taipale spend last week at Villa Eläintarha and tells about her visit in Linnunlaulu:
"November might not be my favourite moment of the year to be in Helsinki -
But, what ever are the conditions outside, Villa Eläintarha offers a place for concentration and inspiration.

This time I was leading a workshop in Biological Arts, together with Marika Hellman
at Aalto Biofilia in Otaniemi. And I was able to test the new metro line from Hakaniemi to Otaniemi, so smart and fast!

We also dismantled the experimental Melliferopolis installation for bees, Hexa-Hive Village with Airstrip for Pollinators at
Tarja Halosen puisto, just next to the Villa. In any case, next May it will be back: Melliferopolis just got the information from the Helsinki city officials that this installation for bees and citizens will have the permission to be exhibited
in the park next summer season, too! Wellcome all pollinators and insect lovers!
And thank you for all the support we have received from Satu Sirén and Eläintarhan Huvila. " @Melliferopolis - Honeybees in Urban Environments
