"As far as I am concerned, this residency was very positive for me, I had the feeling to be part of a micro-society for 6 months alongside the other residents of the Cité. I really appreciated the international context of the residency, its decompartmentalized character, where various artistic practices, and geographical and cultural origins mix. Moreover, I was able to take advantage of this time of residence to develop my research, by having in particular the opportunity to consult various funds of archives or libraries because it is typically the kind of things to which I do not have access since the small rural commune where I live. What I remember about this residency is the rich and stimulating encounters that pushed me out of my comfort zone!"
