El Boga Residency
With the support of Prohelvetia, the Swiss Arts Council, Peter will spend a three-week residency in Mompox where he seeks to be inspired by the Colombian nature, its society, its challenges and their cultural manifestation. He wants to explore how his art reacts, repels or connects to the new stimuli. His computer-generated films will integrate and generate new landscapes.
