Dawn 3.0 Kortrijk, Belgium 2023
Kunstencentrum BUDA Residency Project
a City, a Girl, a House
My residency in BUDA (Kortrijk), is an ongoing research on the relations between bodies, cities and homes. The presentation back in the residency is named: "a City, a Girl, a House." With the deep-mapping method, the research further draws a parallel relationship between motherhood and cities through creative interviews, dance videos and live performances.

Interview: My secret place
Originating from the idea of deep mapping, I emphasised one’s connection to the place and culture. Our conversations covered various topics, including puppy love and the city landscape, the past and future of BUDA as a city art organization, the function of community space and art, Flemish identity, as well as the future of Kortrijk.
I found that the entire place was under construction. The first question that came to our minds was “Why?” After the first day of the site visit, my videographer and I decided to pay special attention to the city. We turned it into our creative studio.
“Construction/deconstruction”, "finished/unfinished" become our main theme.
