Two research interns have been selected for the FNG research internship programme for 2021. The decisions were made based on the applications and the following points were underlined:
- The point of view of the archives and collections: priority was given to students whose applications were based on a concrete and defined part of the FNG collections and especially to previously unstudied and/or topical materials
- Preparation of the working plan and the research questions related to the chosen collections material
The FNG research intern programme has two aims. The Finnish National Gallery wishes to enhance the study of its collections, including artworks, archives, and objects. At the same time we wish to support students who choose to study subjects based on physical collections and objects, archive material and data.
The research interns at the Finnish National Gallery for 2021 are:
Emmi Halmesvirta, University of Helsinki
Artist Juhana Blomstedt (1937–2010) and his artistic process from the sketches to finished artworks; the sketchbooks and drawings in the Collection of the Finnish National Gallery / Ateneum Art Museum and the Juhana Blomstedt Archive in the Archive Collections of the Finnish National Gallery.
Ida Pakarinen, University of Helsinki
Recycled materials in artworks and art as part of nature; artists and artworks in the Collection of the Finnish National Gallery / Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma (artists and artworks to be chosen and defined later) and making artist interviews that will be included in the Archive Collections of the Finnish National Gallery; related material in the Archive Collections.
The internship period is for three months. All of the interns will have their own in-house tutors to support them with studying their chosen material.
