40 days & 40 nights

A corner of my bedroom becomes the place of production, daily a 1 minute black & white video is produced and posted on Instagram.  Being back 'home' amongst family demands revisits into the past through the gates of intimate space.  May-Jun 2020

centre d'art Marnay Art Center

Marnay-Sur-Seine, France

This residency unfortunately closed, so I am thankful that I had those 4 months granted with a bursary as an artist, and then to have worked with this wonderful team.  Studio and environment was spacious.  Days were filled with swimming in the Seine, visiting the nearby nuclear power plant, enjoying the spring bloom with the locals, and working with the history of the building.
