The residency in Solothurn was one of a kind. Situated in the castle midtown I was facing the Aare and still was most of the time for myself alone. Starting in Dezember my family came to visit me for some weeks and soon enough I found some very interesting people I got friends with. For the first time I thought I could speak my native tongue at a residency but the Swiss dialect teached my otherwise. I got along quite well and learned fast to understand the people and follow their conversations.
The exhibition was hosted in a lovely Galerie, S11 and was not only remarkable in its setting but also well attended. All the experimental pieces and materials I was not too used to work with turned out great.
