Pernod Ricard and Villa Vassilieff are delighted to announce the selected 2019 Pernod Ricard Fellows: Patricia Belli, Ingela Ihrman, Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, Michelle Wun Ting Wong

The 2019 Pernod Ricard Fellows were selected by an international Artistic Committee composed of: Colette Barbier (Director, Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris, France), Bernard Blistène (Director MNAM CCI — Centre Pompidou, Paris, France), Mélanie Bouteloup (Director, Bétonsalon — Centre d’art et de recherche & Villa Vassilieff, Paris, France), Diana Campbell Betancourt (Artistic director & Head curator Dhaka Art Summit, Dhaka, Bangladesh), Maria Lind (Director, Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden), Miguel A. López (Co-director, TEOR/éTica, San Jose, Costa Rica)

2019 Pernod Ricard Fellows:

Patricia Belli (1964, Nicaragua) is a visual artist who crosses the mechanical with the natural to build meanings about balance. During her stay, she will be creating sound sculptures, which will explore the polemic of social unrest in Nicaragua.

Ingela Ihrman (1985, Sweden), whose works draw from amateur theatre and science, will use the algae Ulva intestinalis as a link between stomach and fossil fuels. She will also explore the Swedish term “orolig mage” (stomach with agony).

Mimi Cherono Ng’ok (1983, Kenya) will work on the production of a short film based on her previous research about a missing Kenyan student from the 70s and the gaps in historical records.

Michelle Wun Ting Wong (1987, Hong Kong) researches on history of exchange, which can complicate dominant art historical narratives driven by national borders. She will research on artists active in early to mid 20th century, who shared links with Asia and left archival traces in Paris.

Villa Vassilieff & The Pernod Ricard Fellowship
Villa Vassilieff - Pernod Ricard Fellowship is an art center located in a historic alleyway of the Montparnasse neighborhood. Villa Vassilieff was established in the old studio of Marie Vassilieff, a Russian artist close with Picasso, Modigliani and important figures of the European avant-garde of the twentieth century. Today, Villa Vassilieff is an exhibition and coworking space supported by Pernod Ricard. Intended to promote the international art scene, Villa Vassilieff is a place of conviviality linked with the Parisian cultural life where international artists and researchers are hosted in residency through the Pernod Ricard Fellowship.

The Pernod Ricard Fellowship is a residency program founded in 2016 as a result of Pernod Ricard’s historic commitment to artists. A one of a kind residency, the Pernod Ricard Fellowship allows for an extensive research period without any obligation for the creation of artwork. It also offers the residents tailored appointments in the biggest Parisian cultural institutions.

The Pernod Ricard Fellowship in brief:
Four international artists or curators selected per year
Three months residencies in a historic studio renovated for the occasion
Access to unexplored resources
A funding of 20,000 EUR per fellow
