Janine-Chantal Weger

Residence plan
In the six weeks living and working in Tokyo my plan is to get inspired by the city's vibes and architecture to integrate all that I see into my artwork. I want to experiment with all kinds of media to examine this new urban environment. As I am a painter, I will use this medium mostly and build my own brushes and tools as I normally do. As I will be in another part of the world, there will be the opportunities to try out new painting substances, which I have not used before and work on new objects as well.
