Anne’s experience at Belgrade AIR:
I had the idea to make a video about borders and identity. I was introduced by Gordana Zikic to many Serbian artists and curators and then I recorded their thoughts on borders and how they have shaped their identity living in Serbia, where borders have been changing and visa restrictions limited travel across borders. It was amazing how much I was able to accomplish in such a short residency, just two weeks; it was all because of Gordana’s help! Since then, I have begun several collaborative projects with artists that I met while I was at the residency in Belgrade. I have also submitted the video work, Hopscotch, which I made there, for the Transeuropa festival, which will be held in Belgrade this year. Wish me luck in being selected. It was a great experience, transformative in many ways. I made some lifelong connections there. I have been to many residencies and this was one of the ones that had the most impact on my art and career.
