My name is Lisa Minaeva, I’m a video artist and writer based in Moscow. Fruska gora was my first experience of staying in the art residency, and one can’t dream of a better one. It’s a very peaceful, comfortable and spacious place situated in the national park, equipped with everything one might need. The residency also has a garden full of all sorts of fruits which helps a lot to broaden one’s daily menu.Dimitrije was the greatest host ever, very thoughtful and welcoming and always ready to help with the food, transportation, useful information and contacts – basically with everything; also a great researcher and personality always interesting to talk to.Being there I was able to get distracted from the daily routine and concentrate on writing process, which helped me to write half of the book I intend to complete later this year. Futhermore, getting to know the people from art sphere in Belgrade and Novi Sad with Dimitrije’s help laid the foundation for the further collaboration on Serbian soil.
