Projectinfo

During the residency I will continue working on a series of short video stories for a project started in Vienna in 2012.

Documentation

I spent a month in Vienna visiting the Museums and the exhibitions around, working on old projects and developing some new ideas. As there was not much time for a new body of work but enough for dialogue and connections, I also meet some artist friends living in Vienna or coming in residencies from other parts of the world.  Together we’ve enjoyed the autumn exhibitions in Vienna, exploring the public, commercial or underground galleries of the city. The residency was really interesting for me as I met new people and saw new things, thus I am sure that some of the ideas developed in the residency will most probably have an echo in my future projects and exhibitions.
