What did you take away from 2020 and what do you hope for 2021?
2020 was a rollercoaster, I learned to be more patient and to slow the pace at times and I learned to use a lot of software to make animations! I was reminded that even the most unwanted changes can produce new, positive approaches. I saw how much people working in the arts believe in what they do. I hope 2021 can carry the forward-thinking changes that need to happen and we don’t collapse back into redundant old ways. After postponing for a year, I am ready for the adventure of the Max Mara Prize residency in Italy in 2021 and being open to lot of new experiences.
The Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery is a biannual award established in 2005.
The aim of the Prize is to promote and support female artists based in the UK, enabling artists to develop their potential with the gift of time and space.
The winner is awarded a six month Italian residency tailored to fit the artist and their winning proposal for the Prize. During the residency the artist has the opportunity to realise an ambitious new project which is presented in major solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery in London and Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
