Together with Belgian artist Sidney Aelbrecht, Romana Drdovà is invited for a residency of six months in the framework of the annual exchange between AIR Antwerpen and MeetFactory Prague.

Romana Drdovà considers the practice of art, in confrontation with everyday events, as a position of reflection. The art practice of Romana Drdovà focusses on processes of translation and rituals in everyday reality and the errors and misuanderstandings that occur in conversation and perception. Recent and unknown viewpoints on our lives are the mains source of Romana Drdova’s installations and video’s. She focuses on the links and boundaries between European and Asian culture.
