Story of experience of risk, relocation and/or exile

Artist’s account: Due to the constant threat of rocket fire since 24 February 2022, I was under constant stress, worrying about my life and the lives of my relatives. I felt that my creative and emotional states needed to change. I decided to take on the residency opportunity provided by Artists at Risk and Na Poshti to restore myself.

This programme is organized by Perpetuum Mobile (PM) as part of the Artists at Risk (AR)-Network in partnership with UNESCO and with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Teiger Foundation.
