I was chosen from 210 submissions, from 36 different and got invited for LABverde art+nature+science Residency at the Adolpho Ducke Forest Reserve in the Amazon near Manaus, that will take place between 20th and 29th of July 2017.
LABverde is a very spacial program that gives an opportunity to the artists to work, learn and create in such an unique environment. The core of the artistic research is based on issues related to the Amazon as well as its importance for the planet's ecological balance. The opportunity to develop innovative studies in the cultural field will be mediated by a high qualified team of specialists within the fields of arts, humanities, biology, ecology and natural science.
Experimentation and knowledge will be the tools used to inspire artistic working processes and contextualise discourses. By appropriating nature, participants are expected to promote aesthetic and poetic expressions that boost a conscious relation between humankind and nature.

I am a last year graduate of Master of Art and Science at Central Saint Martins – University of The Arts in London. I am working in the field of art, choreography, nature, cosmology, astronomy and science. My artistic practice celebrates human physicality at the age of technology. I focus on what current ecological situation means for physicality, sensorial functionality and motorics of our body. I am interested in the idea of human body in relation to the environment and how human approach towards ourselves affects our relation to the nature (and the other way around). I start with the idea that human body, Earth and Universe have similar physicality and the way we approach them defines their functionality.
LABverde is an unique opportunity for me to deepen my artistic research and practice.
