Open doors day / Katarzyna Pitek / Jonathan Stavleu / Guest performers

Saturday, April 1, 2023 

13:30 – 16:30 Open doors day at the Copper Leg Art Residency. Katarzyna Pitek and Jonathan Stavleu present their art. Guest performers are Erik Alalooga and Janno Bergmann.

Katarzyna Pitek is a painter from Poland. Her works are primarily figurative paintings. Thus, the main subject is a human treated sketchily, marked only with color spots or a barely outlined line. For her, an oil painting is like a quick note, an impression.  

In September 2022, she defended her artistic diploma with honors at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. In addition to painting, she is also fascinated by artistic glass. Her diploma consisted of the main part – glass works “Notes on explorations” and from the painting cycle “Movements”. 

At the Copper Leg Art Residency, she’s working on a large-format painting that will record her stay here.

Jonathan Stavleu is a Dutch artist. His practice is mostly focused on making site-specific installations. For the Copperleg Residency, he wants to explore the relationship between archeology and abandoned industrial structures. Possibly leading to old 20th-century structures being displayed in an archeological context. 

The guest performers will be this time Erik Alalooga and Janno Bergmann. Tandem presents the cooperation project “Cleaning Voice” born in January at the Copper Leg Art Residency.

See you on Saturday!

Open doors day / Marion Bruinenber / Henri Hütt

Sunday, February 19, 2023

13:30 – 16:30 Open day at the Copper Leg Art Residency. Marion Bruinenberg and Henri Hütt present their art.


Marion Bruinenberg is a writer from the Netherlands. Her work focuses firstly on the need for human connection, as it calls for a revolution of empathy. Secondly, while taking a critical view of the social, political, and cultural issues that surround us, she writes about the power of nature and our role and place in it. Her nomination for one of the Dutch most prestigious Essay Awards led to a bidding war between several publishing agencies, which was won by Podium. Her debut novel, Nieuweling (Newcomer), was published in 2022 and was well received in the press, which gave rise to radio interviews, literary performances, and award nominations. At Copper Leg Art Residency, she is working on her second novel.


Henri Hütt is a (performing) artist from Estonia. His spectrum of artwork contains predominantly technological performative acts, sound-performances, staged exhibitions, curating, writing, installative performances, and other unattainable formats.

He graduated from the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy of Culture with a major in choreography and has a master’s degree in performance art from the Estonian Academy of Arts. Henri’s artistic examples include performances, which connect all theatre spaces in Estonia as well as the microtonal flickering of an empty space.

At the Copper Leg Art Residency, Henri deals with giving a voice to those who are not normally listened to or who/what cannot be usually heard. The performative act snippet that he is going to present is called “Safe space for the mistaken ones “.
