The residency at Gachang Art Studio in Daegu in the middle of Korea was a most exciting experience. I stayed there in the summer at a former school which was designated as cultural hub for Korean and international artists. The residency was funded by the government so I received a monthly pocket money. Adam, an Irish video-artist was the only other non Korean and we became close friends in a joint effort to defy the circumstances. The exhibition was quite an success and an invitation for further show in Busan followed.
