GlogauAIR resident from July 2019 to September 2019
I would like to take textile installation, which I previously explored, and work together with other people in the residency to develop it and execute a public installation under the concept ‘Utopia’.
Everyone has ideal things and dreams in their minds. As Berlin has an abundance of resources and an excellent work environment, it is a dream workplace for artists and I am sure each person came with a distinct ultimate vision. I also share this thought as I want to gain experiences in Berlin.
This not only applies to art, as Berlin is a city that has the power to make people move with ideal thoughts even when it comes to culture. When people come with such ideal ideas, it does result in a gap between individual dreams and reality. This causes the chasm to become even wider, but enables people to see what they could not see before and also dream of other new things based on it. Illusions that follow one after another become connected and turn into a single circle, and that circle functions as an encounter and the link between a stranger and myself.
I want to apply this utopia text as the basis and display various works that contain dreams in places around the city or use touchable or visible senses to create substantial forms and carry out in works where I can commune and interact with people.
I do not simply want to settle it as an individual work, as I wish to develop it as a floating work that continuously becomes connected through others during the residency.
As an artist, I create, arrange or transform my own viewpoint and language into regular patterns. I create a new combination by uniting the surrounding environment with abstract forms. This arrangement provides new experiences that flexibly interact with the audience.
My work is based on an unreachable and distant world: the world of colour and especially fantasy. I say that the secret of life lies in retaining ideality or fantasy and that only dreams can grant us meaning and order to an absurd and evanescent life.
Life is eventually ‘loss’. If you strip it down, life is an unpredictable sequence of loss and torture and we live while constantly losing something. Being born in the world is to be born with death, thereby ultimately leading to death. Although we struggle to live day by day, vanishing is the final point we will get to. We are small entities in the universe and in front of nature. Life is so harsh and relentless.
Only fantasy and ideality make life precious to live in this transient world.
The world of colours is a romantic fantasy that grants the meaning of life and those who indulged in the illusion follow starts rather than shabby land. I would like to share sympathy with other people by creating a single world through conversation with colours.
