Between late April to early June 2021 I was the resident artist at ︎︎︎The Watch, located in a former East German border watchtower in Schlesischer Busch park, Berlin. Responding to the set theme of “caretaking”, I examined the park environment itself, taking the idea of landscaping as a departure point in order to explore the concept of the Picturesque in the context of contemporary discourses around so-called ‘desirable' and ‘undesirable' habitations within the park.

A video work, The Elements of the Picturesque, is currently being produced out of the artistic research I undertook at the residency. This new work will be completed in September 2021 and is due to be exhibited at The Watch in October at an event to conclude their summer residency programme (event tbc).
