Low residency I
I spent almost two weeks in London, doing Low Residency as a part of my course. It wasn’t mandatory, but I felt like I needed to be there and get this experience.
I must admit, I was so scared on my first day; I was so nervous that I thought I will faint any moment. I don’t talk or meet so many people on daily basis (maybe annual), so it was a challenge to me. Funny, the more nervous I am, the more I talk. I guess I managed somehow 🙂
On our first day we had access to get into a new Camberwell College of Arts building and examine it, by gathering footage which inspires us. This was so new to me, but somehow so familiar. I forgot that I used to do this – exploring places with a purpose. At that moment, I wasn’t sure what I was doing, but I felt like I lost and found something. Exploring and experiencing places. Not passing by, but actually going on purpose and analyzing surroundings until you find something.
I will be short, I don’t like collaborative work. I am never able to do what I can or want and I can’t stand for myself either. And if I try, nobody really gets me. So, I’m usually trying to stay on the side. So, first collaboration turned very philosophical and I have no idea what we have created. But it was fun. It was so different.
Overall, every day we were sure we have enough activities, so during such short time – many things happened, which I am still processing.
– Collaborative work
– Group tutorial
– Gallery visits
– Artist talk
– Projection mapping workshop
– Meal at Jonathan’s place
– More gallery visits
– More collaborative work
– Tate Exchange workshops & discussions (so scary)
– More workshops about filling applications and Artist CVs
– More more gallery visits
I think, I need to make other posts about Low residency.
