Current BA (Hons) Fine Art students, Ezgi Kaya and Po Alamaa were selected for the VPK residency project in Milan, Italy.

The VPK residency project is commissioned by Course Leader, Richard Waring, curated by Ex-voto and is run in collaboration with Viafarini-in-residence, Spazio Tilde and VisualcontainerTV – supported by Non Riservato. This year’s residency was run in the Viafarini Spaces and was focused on the relationship between video art practice and performative processes.

The opportunity sees two students from the Fine Art Course go to Milan for 15 days to take part in artist-lead workshops. These workshops are designed to influence creative ideas and stimulate new outcomes in the form of video work. The selected students are also given their own time to explore the city and see what inspirations it has to offer.

“At the start of the residency, we took advantage of the city and explored some of Milan’s sights, we absolutely had to take a couple days to check out Fatazione Prada and Hangar Bicocca, they are both contemporary art galleries in Milan” – Po Alamaa.
