Purpose of the residency 

To explore the notion of process/processing in the context of the Japanese philosophy and ethics of making things, and in correspondence with performance as an art practice. On the one hand, this exploration involves, the close observation of the elements of space, body, materials, and duration in crafts traditions, and on the other, it is an effort to connect to the supernatural dimensions of what takes place in the Japanese workspace. Eventually, the aim is to see how these findings would influence the series of performances that I’m currently working on, and manifest themselves on different levels in my art practice. 

Plan during the residency
・Study the concepts according to the work plan.
・Pay visits to my fellow Tokyo-based artists, craft workers, and related museums and institutions.
・Establish contacts for future collaborations.
・Carry on with the ongoing performance project.
・Perform one or two of the ideas live in the city of Tokyo on a couple of occasions.
