Berlin Art Residency
My Art Residency Opportunity in September 2016
I completed an Art Residency for 2 weeks in Berlin at Huttenpalast - an eclectic warehouse with retro caravans, and an art studio upstairs. After many coffees, late nights and aching muscles, I completed the art installation and then transported it to Studio Baustelle Art Gallery where my artwork was exhibited for one month. Following the exhibition, the art installation was returned to Huttenpalast where I donated the artwork to, and it lives permanently in Berlin.
The art installation was titled "Connected" which represents the connection between people - how sometimes we want to isolate ourselves and hide away, when what we really need is connection. I used recycled t-shirt fabric to create my own style called "drawing with yarn". The artwork was 2.5 metres tall by 1.2 metres wide.
Solo Gallery Exhibition at Studio Baustelle
My art installation was exhibited at Studio Baustelle Gallery for one month, and there was an opening night on the 17th September with live music, a bathtub full of yarn with an interactive art inside the gallery (where people took a piece of yarn and added to the hanging interactive art piece - no rules!). There were also small pieces of my work for sale in the second window.
