UA Miniresidencies: Anastasia (A) Khodyreva & Camille Auer

A sharing, a demo, a discussion, an outcome – Anastasia (A) Khodyreva’s and Camille Auer’s residency period for UA Miniresidencies culminates in a public event in Outo Olo where the artists share some of their process and work. Free admission!

During their residency, Anastasia (A) and Camille have unpacked the video and photographic material they collected to complete “terminal socialities,” an experimental audio-visual work that studies quotidian experiences of marginalisation lived by migratised bodies that maintain terminals harbouring proudly green Finnish passenger ferries.

“terminal socialities” senses the harbours and ferries as inter-connected physical, spacio-temporaland socio-political architectures that, among their other roles, also maintain discriminatory social choreography. Precisely, a terminal is figured as a porous container that muddies together many shades of whiteness, class, citizenship, relationships of labour, capital, neocolonial environmentalism and greenwashing, social suffocation, plastic buckets, disgust, and control often transmitted with walkie-talkies. The piece asks where a terminal begins and ends. It studies the liminal spacetimes maintenance workers inhabit between surges of passengers.

The collaborative piece emerges as an extension of Anastasia (A) ’s performance created for New Performance Turku Biennial 2023 and their several years of maintenance work in Viking Lineharbours and ferries.

Anastasia (A) Khodyreva is a Russian-born turkulainen non-binary artist, writer, and researcher who works with text, performance, fleeting aesthetic gestures, and collective readings. They wholeheartedly believe in independent publishing. In their practice, they are curious about creating critical atmospheres of sensing and being, poetics and politics of touch, dreamy ecologies of multispecies relationships, affective labour of friendships and other intimacies and collaborations as doings-in-common, often — with Camille Auer.

Camille Auer is such a fucking bitch. No. She’s a poet. A writer. She has been an artist. She has worked with moving image and sound, performance, installation, words and concepts. She emerges when someone is being transphobic, to be a bitch. Camille Auer once abandoned her artcareer for three years to study birds and ornithological literature to figure out what kind of biases humans have in their knowledge of birds. Turns out, many. Then she, of course, made an artwork about it. Because when you’re in the art game, you’re in the art game. Fuck.



The space is wheelchair-accessible with assistance. There is a movable ramp that covers the two steps in the entrance. The door is 67 cm wide. The nearest accessible toilet is a public one at Dallapé park.

UA Miniresidencies is a series of short residencies that aims to enable and support artists’ and makers’ research or work in progress in a soft, light, and communal way. The long term dream is to alleviate the urgent need for working spaces, enrich the local grassroots scene and create expanded structures of support.
