I can make great art. 

             Patti Smith did it. 

    Lou Reed did it. 

I’m living in Chelsea Hotel. 

                I’m Basquiat.

        I’m a beautiful loser.

                    Just a kid.

I’m trapped in New York City.

    Art bursting through my veins.

            I’m breathing it.

    I’m shitting it.

           I’d starve for it.

        I’d squat for it.

                I’d die for it.

        Wouldn’t you?


During a winter-long residency in Brooklyn, ten obsessive female artists succumb to the darkness of their creative fascinations.

Residency is a genre-bending docu-horror feature shot and directed by filmmaker Winnie Cheung during the Locker Room’s second annual lockdown residency program.

The film is produced by the Locker Room, a femme-owned creative house that comprises an art collective, a recording studio, and a gallery based in Brooklyn, New York.


Filmed in Brooklyn, NY

Premiered at International Film Festival Rotterdam 2023 as part of their “Bright Future” program

“Resurrects the collective spirit that once defined New York City’s artistic ecosystem.” | ArtForum

“Inspired by DIY Punk cinema, Residency recalls Richard Lowenstein’s Dogs in Space (1986) or Gaspar Noé's Climax (2018), where the absence of natural light illuminates the fusion of colours, shapes, movements and sounds generated by the omnipresent creative flow, inducing a hallucinogenic and transient experience where practice and exhibition are in constant flux.” | IFFR

“It builds in energy in a foreboding way until it smashes out of the documentary format into something frightful and unashamedly camp. I love the low budget NY No Wave aesthetic and the spotlight on artists, musicians, fashion designers, where those behind and in front of the camera intermingle, until the final girl is left to make sense of it all.”
| Michelle Carey, SXSW Sydney
