DF arrived in Bergen via Copenhagen for the start of his mini residency with BAG.
Met some of the artists at the BAG studio in the busy docks area with some of the visiting artists form the USF international residency scheme, for a lovely communal lunch.
Then up to the roof of Imi's nearby flat with the Bergen artists to watch the sun set, aided by a rather nice bottle of Ardmore whisky.
