Triangle Arts Association’s artist-in-residence Pia Männikkö’s oeuvre can be characterized through sculptural mass and movement. For Männikkö’s artistic practice the concepts of body and space are not only mere starting points, something from which something else may be found, experimented, and contested. They are the primary concepts that establish the ontology of her art, and through which all the decisions and details can be grounded and understood.
For the first half of the 2016, two more artists will be starting their residency at Triangle Arts Association in Dumbo, Brooklyn.

The artists will also be granted an apartment for their time in the residency. The periods of residency at Triangle are three months long.
