China residency - AIR Guanlan
I was invited to work three months in the Guanlan printmaking base in South China as an independent artist in residence. Board and accommodation in one of the antique Chinese houses is offered in exchange for a portion of the produced work. The houses, galleries and printmaking studio are located in a restored Haka village in the Guangdong province famous for its endless industry and crazy food habits. The base is treated as a gated community and is something of a local tourist attraction for workers and visitors from all around the country. Words fall short to describe all the experiences I had. Pictures will have to do for now.
