- Residency period: Spring 2021
- Neringa Forest Architecture Residency
Agata Marzecova is a researcher in ecology, photography, and new media based in Tallinn. As an environmental scientist, she has participated in a range of research projects that have analysed changes in lakes and their catchments during the transition from the Holocene to Anthropocene periods. In recent years, she has become increasingly involved in art-science collaborations which explore the porous boundaries between the science, aesthetics, technology, and politics of environments. As part of the Neringa Forest Architecture residency, Marzecova explores the relationship between research methodologies and forest knowledge. Her research departs from ‘forest’ as a general category to examine how certain types of forest came to be regarded as ‘better’ than others and how different practices and values contribute to the emergence of different forest ecosystems.
