Yoeri Guépin (he/him) is a visual artist, researcher, and passionate gardener. His projects are long term and collaboratively oriented, involving experimental forms of care, working with embodied knowledge, storytelling, and ecosystems at the margins. His experience of being brought up at a biodynamic farm, helping his parents in the fields from a young age led to an interest in (agri)cultural histories. Guépin holds an MA from the Dutch Art Institute. His work is nominated for the Dolf Henkens Prize (2023) and has recently been exhibited at TENT Rotterdam (2023), the Sharjah Biennale (2023), and Kadist San Francisco (2022). In 2022, he was a fellow at Stiftung Künstlerdorf Schöppingen. He is a resident at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht for 2023-2024
