“[The residency was a] wonderful opportunity to gain insight and feedback from the gallery team. It was my first experience taking on a project of this size. This experience has helped in understanding the technicalities of installing and de-installing the project… Furthermore, the discussions and development of the texts for the exhibition were very helpful in understanding how I can communicate the complexities of my work to a large audience in an approachable manner.”
