Around this time, I arranged a meeting with The Institution. I had been working on the project for four months, but only met the curator/director of the project three times, and considering I was supposed to be working with them I felt perhaps we should have more contact. In this meeting, I proposed more regular meetings to discuss the project, to get feedback/guidance, and to develop a dialogue, also mentioning that it would be nice to have more contact, as I was quite lonely. The project manager looked at me, surprised, and said: ‘Oh, I thought you were a socially engaged artist – why don’t you just make friends with the people in the village?’
