My intention is to go over personal archives, to rethink my current practice and to try to realise my further steps without specified result behind it. So, my residency would be a process of looking back with an aim to better understand the future of personal practice. I might prepare a presentation of my existing practice and confront it with my current institutional experiences and working conditions. As I often create spontaneous works based on impressions of urban explorations, it might happen that I will anyway produce some simple in-situ and studio works during my residency.
