Marina Hulzenga is greatly influenced by her rural Canadian upbringing, the essence of her work invokes interactions between space, land, history, and environment, also hinting at the reminders we have of our fragile and humble place within such a landscape. A professional background in exhibit design influences her desire to have her projects tell a certain story: to celebrate a history, listen to the land and constantly engage the philosophical, conceptual and social dialogues of our spatial surroundings.
Marina’s work traverses the spheres of spatial design, curation, and design research. Working with a variety of mediums, Marina is absorbed in collecting and research as a means to creativity. Her work focuses on uncovering details and connections within our spatial awareness that are often overlooked. With this approach, she creates spatial experiences that open up a third space for exchange and debate.
Hulzenga is presenting LIMINAL SPACE || AWASITIPAHASKAN, part of the symposium Reconciliation and Resurgence: Heritage Practice in Post-TRC Edmonton on March 3 and 4.
