“Whether people can set themselves free from acquired ways of thinking and information in order to start thinking from scratch without their influence and create a new start point is the issue at the heart of my artistic approach in my time as a flying artist. Not just the result, but particularly the process, the path to returning to this new starting point, is very important and valuable for me.”Hassan Sheidaei, artist-in-residence 2022/2023
