STUDIO VISITS WITH GUEST TUTOR IRATXE JAIO
- BIO: Iratxe Jaio (Spain 1976) is a visual artist based in Rotterdam. After studying in the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, she received her MA in Fine Arts from the Piet Zwart Institute (2002) and completed a two year residency at the Jan van Eyck Academy (2004) in The Netherlands.
Since 2001, she forms an artist duo together with Klaas van Gorkum (The Netherlands 1975). Their practice could be described as a kind of experimental archaeology. It explores the social significance of existing objects and documents, by appropriating and reproducing them within a different context. They have participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions at venues such as Artium Museum in Vitoria-Gasteiz; ADN Platform in Barcelona; FRAC-Aquitaine in Bordeaux; MUSAC in Léon; Tabakalera in Donostia-San Sebastian; Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna; Fabra i Coats in Barcelona; De Appel in Amsterdam; or Konsthall C in Stockholm.
They regularly write essays on topics such as the relation between art and politics, which have been published by different newspapers and online platforms. One of the most recent texts is the essay The Porous Stone, with a reflection on the role that art can play in relation to contested heritage.
