The crossed-residences program established by the City of Strasbourg, gives every year the opportunity for several artists to enrich their personal and professional development through an experience in a foreign country. In this context, in 2012, the City of Strasbourg welcomed the Polish artist Dorota Walentynowicz. Few months later, Patrick Bogner, photograph from Strasbourg, developed an artistic project over several trips to Gdansk. The residences are supervised by the Apollonia association and “Laznia” Center for Contemporary Art in Gdansk.
In his artistic work, Jia Qiu is currently developing the theme of “the fiction without author”, referring to Guy Debord and Michel de Certeau essays. He analyses the effects of urban space on the emotional behavior.
