In November/December 2016 Serena travelled to Mynämäki, Finland to undertake Chapter 2 of From The Outside, In. She was awarded a Saari Residency by the Kone Foundation. In 2016 there were 378 applications from 39 countries.
From the Outside, In (the room waits for your next move) explores how a nomadic body navigates the process of inhabitation in places of “foreignness”. Situated nomadism is a phenomenological interaction between objects, people and spaces in real time. (the room waits for your next move) was developed through living and working within the residency accommodation for the duration of the fellowship, applying the attention and rigour of a physical improvisation practice to the written word, in dialogue with site. This chapter examines the changing dynamics of the site, and the interaction of time and space questioning where the line between art and life begins and ends.
