Danilo Oliveira’s Residency – Week 4 Blog Post

Brazilian artist Danilo Oliveira shares a blog post about the final week of his Fresh Milk residency. Danilo documented his experiences through a visual diary, sharing images and sketches that capture impressions of his time here in a series he has dubbed ‘The Bajan Chronicles’. See more below:


‘The Bajan Chronicles’ consists of images generated during my residency at Fresh Milk, looking at Barbados’ history, everyday life and culture. Of course, one month is not enough to create any kind of deep reflection, but it’s time enough to realize some historical coincidences and explore some cultural and social issues, even in a superficial way. It’s about a foreign view, for a short time, touching on some restrictive issues, and trying to generate questions and reflections out of these.
