Tasarim Bakkali artist's residency in Istanbul in August

Added on by Miguel Sopena.

Very exciting news- I have accepted into the Tasarim Bakkali artist in residency programme in Istanbul (see also here and here) for the month of August. The programme provides accommodation and studio space, with a solo exhibition in the Kadiköy quarter of Istanbul at the end of the residency period.

My plan for the stay is to develop the strand within my practice in which I respond very freely and intuitively to my immediate surroundings (landscapes, cityscapes, the urban environment...) or the ideas and associations waken by those surroundings. This is the case of my Valencia and Dénia series, examples from which can be seen in the Landscapes and Cityscapes section of my website.

I am currently doing as much research as possible in order to optimise the use of time once I get to Istanbul. I plan to diarise my experience on my Instagram account and I will post more details about the progress of the project and the final exhibition here.

Incredibly excited about this opportunity.
