Art Residency of Hannes Egger (IT) in the Ústí nad Labem House of Arts

#1 Art Residence at the Ústí nad Labem House of Arts

Artist Hannes Egger implemented a residency during November and December 2022 at the Ústí nad Labem House of Arts. He focused on the experience of performing with students of the Faculty of Art and Design at J. E. Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem (CZ) and also prepared an Artist Talk for the public (November 1, 2022), where he spoke about his artworks and creative processes. On December 7, he performed an artwork for the opening of the exhibition Gardening of Soul: Introduction called Potatoes Soup (Terra Project) as another result of his residence. The performance was about eating together, sharing and digesting. While researching for the Project Terra (installation – video, objects), which is about the First World War, he came across a war cookbook from Upper Austria from 1915. He cooked the potato soup according this recipe and served it during the performance.
