Approaching her research materials and media as ‘collaborators’, Lucy Cordes Engelman willingly invites uncontrollable agents into her artistic process. Guided by the work of hydrofeminists and ancient women mystics, this leads her to create playful and engaging encounters. Currently, she is travelling on a boat in the Arctic, as part of her residence at The Arctic Circle.

In her on-going research-based practice Lucy Cordes Engelman (b. 1987, Washington DC) creates sensorial spaces that seek to re-imagine established narratives. Before moving to the Netherlands and graduating from the Master Artistic Research at the KABK in The Hague and the advanced Masters of Research in Art and Design at Sint Lucas Antwerpen, Lucy worked in the film industry of Los Angeles. I meet with her as she is about to head to the Antarctic for a residency program.
