MP5

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

 

For me, living in a space for a period of residency represents a moment in which time is suspended. A new space in which to work, a segment for experimenting and implementing a project to which I have never yet been able to devote my energies.

 

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

 

My work space is a white room and my research is a search for the images that inhabit it.

In this residency I will be doing something that I have never done before. I will be exploring the figure of an artist whose work fascinates me and who is going to serve as a model for a project that I will be producing at the end of the residency, I will establish a relationship, I will be able to interact, and I will allow myself to be guided by this encounter in order to conceive a work.

 

Define “care” in three words 

 

Time

Listening

Concentration
