Where do you come from and how did you get to Prague?
I first came to the Czech Republic to do an artist residency in Tabor, back in 2009. Many things happened while I was there, including a trip that led my mother and I to find long-lost relatives in Slovakia. During that time I fell in love with a man in Tabor and decided to move there and start a life together. That didn’t go well. 8 months later I packed my bags to move to Prague to start work on an art project that I had received funding for from the Ontario government in Canada.
