Today I’m starting my first research for the Fragility project in Bogliasco, near Genova in Italy. I’m gonna be here and work for 4 weeks in a new environment exploring the fragility of my body and life. The target of this residence is to find some themes & ideas that I could explore later one during the workshop-auditions in Porto, Luxemburg, Riga and Bucharest.
Thank you Bogliasco Foundation for offering us this opportunity.
