Schuppert is a curator and academic. Since 2010, she has been working as an independent curator delivering numerous exhibitions in Finland, Germany and Northern Ireland in both galleries and museums. She successfully completed a practice-based PhD in curating (2016, Ulster University). Her research explored the critical potential of artistic interventions into photographic archives and the curator’s role in this process.
The focus of Schuppert’s curatorial practice is commissioning new context and site-specific works in any medium. She is interested in time and its cyclicality; how the past, present and future coexists in and through works of art. Last year, Schuppert was curator-in-residence at PS2 gallery in Belfast, where she curated three exhibitions, two of which consisted of newly commissioned work. While the “Materialities of History” exhibition was funded by BFI and commissioned by NIScreen, “Of Objects and Me” was done in collaboration with Belfast Photo Festival.
