Upcoming Residency

From June 13th to July 13th 2018, I was the artist in residence for the Prague Biennale organisation, as part of the Magic Carpets programme. Magic Carpets is a 4 year Creative Europe platform which involves 13 cultural organisations from the EU and other candidate countries, providing a platform for emerging artists to collect local stories and carry them across Europe. Each year, each organisation will host an artist for a one-month residency for them to create a body of work in response to this cultural exchange. In it’s inaugural year, I was put forward by the Folkestone Fringe, UK, and selected for participation by the Prague Biennale in the Czech Republic. During this residency, I created a body of work called Urban Archive, and through that, explored the relationship between tourism and the local residents in Central Prague.

Now that Magic Carpets is in its second year, Folkestone Fringe have invited me to work with their incoming artists and continue my Urban Archive project, this time focusing on the different communities resident in Folkestone. During this residency, I will explore the different layers of the towns urban fabric and try to understand the relationships between that and the towns people. This residency will be broken down into two phases; an initial research period from April 1st to April 14th, followed by a development and production phase from June 1st to June 30th.
