From April 15 to May 20 2019, I attended Rucka Arts Residency (pronounced “root-ska”) in the town of Cēsis, Latvia, and lived with seven international artists of varying art practices in a big old house. We hung out together, took short holidays in Rīga together, cooked a couple of feasts, and participated in each other’s art projects and workshops.
Our home at Rucka Residency is a large 100-year-old house, where we each had our own bedrooms, and shared the bathrooms, kitchen, and other common areas. From working at the desk beside my bedroom window, I’d look outside and see this structure which was partially destroyed during a fire at the house in 2017. Soon enough I was inspired to draw this building and fill it with penguins to symbolise our home at Rucka.
