Here are some words from the artist herself.
The room, or where I live is like a container for me — the container of objects, behavior, perception, emotion, thoughts and dreams. Through this period of residency, which throws me into an unfamiliar environment, I want to explore how the relationships between me and the surroundings are established gradually from different aspects.
