Purpose of the residency

One of the main purposes is to do some research about the Mono-Ha movement that took place in Japan between 1968-1973. Also interested in the Japanese avant-garde art in the 70's. I want to focus in the exploration Mono.Ha did about the existing relation with some aspects of the nature or other objects in the enviorment. This tension between the artist's desire to change things, to change the order of things established independent of the existence of the Artist . I want to try to translate this to my work in the present, which is so changeable and incomprehensible. That tension itself becomes doubtful. Non-intervention in a changeable context. In a digital context also.

The other main purpose is to develop some of the aspects that I started with my last work Lancelot Plissé.
