What does it mean for you to inhabit a space during a residency period?

 

Residency space for me is a space for the excess of shyness, a time to sniff, it is a phase of the familiarization process (or meta-process). Then it becomes the space of excess of production, of production beyond the product, of waste and of learning for its own sake. Residency space is the luxury of being able to think unnecessary thoughts. 

 

How would you define the space of your work and research? What will you investigate on this occasion?

 

What if we wrote a love letter for every goodbye? Returning insistently to this question, I take this opportunity to invite Patrizia Rotonda to think and work with me, because I would like to push myself into the lineage of the traditional love song, and, through love, to reach mourning and collective manifestation of lament and emotion, and see if and how to put them in communication with both the device of the love letter (which comforts me) and with the scenic device (which intimidates me like a sacred space). At the same time, I would like to ask an expert how to build architecture with light, to amplify our feelings.

 

Define “care” in three words

 

listening to oneself, recognising oneself, reaching out (excess, not exchange)
