Selina Oakes (she/her, b. England) is an artist curator, researcher and writer with an interest in the potential of bodily attunements and hydrofeminist discourses in reactivating senses of socio-ecological relation and resilience. Her current research engages with waters, particularly those undulating in the Baltic Sea, as agential forces which shape and are shaped by societies. She works with various media including photography, camera-less photography, film, sound, poetry and drawing, and incorporates embodied and participatory techniques into her practice. In 2021, she graduated from the Masters programme in Visual Cultures, Curating and Contemporary Art at Aalto University and, in 2022, she has been working with Hippolyte Gallery and the Association of Photographic Artists. She is currently Assistant Curator and Editor at Contemporary Art Archipelago, where she supports workshops and produces interviews with artists and scientists. She writes and edits contemporary artistic and curatorial texts, and is available for proof-reading and editorial assignments. Selina is interested in collaborating with multi and transdisciplinary creatives, particularly on ecologically-engaged and site-sensitive projects.
