Along the way doing shows of my own and of/with others, most notably at Luca Rezzolas' Breed Art Studios and with Linda Cuglia in the neighbourhood of the Temple of Hera."

In-situ is a year-round artist residency in the heart of Hong Kong that fosters international exchange through open call applications.
In-situ is Latin for "in place". Our aim is to support artists with an experimental art practice. We are less focused on the final outcome, but rather, on the process of making, and of discovery. We also don’t ask for detailed project proposals, budgets, or schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed after spending time here, "in-situ".
