GlogauAIR resident from November 2017 to January 2018
I believe personally a beauty of architecture is the best among the other art genres.
As it is essentially different between excitement from 3-dimensional spaces to be obtained through movement of our bodies and heads and excitement from 2-dimensional paintings.
However, sometimes architecture would be burdened by something apart from the artistry of space.
For instance, architectural structures and equipment come under this disturbing category.
Also, in an area of architecture, as the final decision-maker would be a client not an architect, the creation-right would be restricted deeply by clients.
Sometimes an architect who could build the PANTHEON would make a BARN eventually. So I want to be a client of my architecture.
I’m desperate to explore a possibility of ‘architectural sculpture’ in an area of freedom; art.
From now on I want to call it ‘sculpitecture’ as a compound word sculpture and architecture.
It is not an existing sculpture to be appreciated from a distance but a sculpture could be appreciated for audiences to enter a sculpture like architecture.
In conclusion, to approach architecture just in a view of pure formative arts without those restrictions is the essence of my work.
It is a quite different experience between making digital works personally and doing actual exhibitions to the public. So what I seek most in the residency is to make physical artworks instead of digital works and to hold several exhibitions.
When I divide 3 months residency period into 3 parts, in the first month I will produce and exhibit two artworks which I made just in digital images. These would be attached images no. 1~2 and no. 6~9.
What I anticipate from participating in the residency is to make ideas just in my head to be real and to learn how to exhibit them effectively. Actually as I didn’t graduate from an art college, I want to experience various exhibitions by myself. So in the early phase of the residency I’ll concentrate on making the existing (but not realized physically) works instead of producing totally new one.
In the second and last month, I have a plan to treat a new main project. To deal with an aesthetic of architecture in an area of sculpture, human~scale is needed necessarily. So how to make a sculpture like architecture, but not like real architecture, is a big issue of sculpitecture.
Proposing some solutions about the issue is an essential key of sculpitecture I am seeking.
At this moment, I have concluded two ways to solve it. The first way is to use optical illusion of perspective with just small models. And I could make a photograph to look like a real architecture. The second way is to make a sculpture in a gallery by using actual human~scale. The latter is more challenging than the former and it would be a main work during the residency.
And I want to talk about not just a project for this year but for the next 5 years.
There is a common misconception about me. That is, I’ll quit architecture for sculpture. But this is totally misunderstanding about my life~plan. I have a plan to make a positive interaction between architecture and sculpture.
