As the readers of this blog my remember, beginning of 2018 I undertook a 3 months residency at x-church in Gainsborough. My proposition to the community was to explore the question What does it mean to be a resident? For this I spent time with everybody who was willing to let her join in and become, if only temporary, part of their lives. The wish to understand better what it means to be a UK resident stems from my increasing anxiety about the status of EU citizens post Brexit. Having lived longer in England than in Austria, the country of her birth, the place I identify with most is not a particular country but Europe as a whole. For me as a migrant and future EU guest-worker it is therefore not easy to define what means to be a resident within the borders of a nation state.
From 28th January to 5th February the outcome of my project at x-church will be shown at Project Space Plus at Lincoln University . I am also very pleased that, with the support of x-church, I am able to host Chateau Marcus, the pop-up gallery that I was able to set up during my residency.
