Make yourself at home, 2019.
Within my own research about new ways to document the process of inhabiting a
space, I converted a free room in my apartment into a production and residence space for artists which allowed them to develop their ideas from tests to final production. I supported their residencies with documentation which was later exhibited at the Schiller Museum within the Imaginary Bauhaus group exhibition. The space was open for six months and received 7 artists.
Large format prints and frottages of the space along with schemes illustrating the changes it has undergone are used as data to understand the secrets of dwelling. In perspective, the project brings awareness to the way our spaces are configured in order to better plan the objects and actions needed when a space has a specific purpose, be it a private room or a public square.
This is an ongoing investigation in which, through the creation of the artistic residence, the relationship between the artist's work and their process is also studied. In the longer term, such a practice would allow participants to understand the possibilities of creating a more precise exhibition for their works.
