SNF ARTWORKS Curatorial Fellow Ioanna Gerakidi, writer, curatoror and educator will be travelling to Istanbul for a 6-week curatorial residency program at SAHA Association (May-July 2023), where she will get the chance to further develop her research and practice.
During her residency, Ioanna will research the subjects of companionship, kinship, witness and solidarity for writing a lexicon of psalms and spells, of idiolects and neologisms, spoken by the ones whose voices haven’t yet been heard. Through engaging diverse communities, her research longs for inventing, transcribing or legitimizing a language of trauma, suffering, catastrophe, political and personal turmoil.

Ioanna’s residency is supported by ARTWORKS through its founding donor the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
