Emerging from Finland into the international arena, JONNA KINA is the first recipient of BELOW ZERO, a new contemporary art prize for emergent Finnish artists launched in 2017 by the Finnish Institute and Beaconsfield and made possible by a patron.

Jonna Kina is invited to work within Beaconsfield’s tradition of outward facing, public residency. Artists are encouraged to respond to the unique physical character of the venue and the distinctive creative identity of Beaconsfield. Visual and audio field work carried out by Kina at the site, constitutes raw material for the Below Zero commission; to be developed during the artist’s residency with Beaconsfield, for exhibition from 7 March. A catalogue will be published to celebrate the prize.
