Varvara & Mar is an artist duo formed by Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet in 2009. Often duo’s work is inspired by the digital age. In their practice, they confront social changes and the impact of the technological era. In addition to that, Varvara & Mar are fascinated by kinetics and participation, which are integral parts of their work. Also, they are exploring textile fabrication methods in the age of digital fabrication. They have exhibited their work at the following institutions: MAD, New York; FACT, Liverpool; Barbican Centre, London, Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens, ZKM, Karlsruhe.
Stacey Koosel (b.1982) is the editor of Estonian Art magazine and a contemporary art curator and critic. She recently curated “Hive Mind” an exhibition of Finnish art at Tallinn Art Hall’s two galleries.
