At Nordiska Gästateljén, Malongen - Nytorget 15A, Stockholm
Welcome to an open house and exhibition mingle for Michal Makaresco’s stay at Nordiska Gästateljén Malongen. Makaresco has produced several new works during her residency that will be exhibited at Malongen. In her practice, she focuses on dark humor and sexual tension between genders through surreal and exposed site-specific installations made with mixed media and photography. Makaresco is interested in exploring relationships and the human psyche with the main focus on testing the boundaries in desire, destruction, romance and the intimacy between creator, subject and spectator. She uses shock-value entertainment as a creative and fun game to challenge any kind of conventional perception. The residency was not only a working space but a temporary home and as the living space, is a crucial environment for art making that doesn't separate art from life. Where the home is like a medium in itself.
 Michal Makaresco earned her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts (2010). Studied photography at Camera Obscura (2005-2006) and in the Advanced Studies Program of HaMidrasha Faculty of the Arts (2017-2018). 
The artist was invited by The Nordic art association (NKF) through Stockholm based independent curator Tal Gilad (b.1985). Communication and production advisors: Isabella Tjäder and Didem Yıldırım.
