Exchange - Planting the seed - Artist in Residence at Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC), Aomori Public University
26th October - 15th December, 2013 | Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC), Aomori Public University
The Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC) has decided the theme for the 2013 Artist in Residence program: "Exchange―Planting the seed." The 'Artist-in-Residence' (AIR) program expects artists to have firsthand experiences that would otherwise be impossible during short stays such as sightseeing and exhibitions.
The experiences had by living and working at the ACAC for a designated period of time are meant to contribute to the development and deepening of AIR artists' projects. Conversely, AIR is also expected to be a means of contact with novel experiences and new ways of thinking through the artists and their work.
Much more than personal interaction and cultural exchange, this means contact with something deeper, which is why we expect that seeds of coming creations will be planted in each other to bud and bloom somewhere, someday.
These could be called chance encounters filled with opportunity to reconsider and relativize each other's values and what is taken to be common sense. The premise of AIR is based on interaction but extends beyond it; it develops around the theme of creative exchange by thinking again about what we can do through recognition and what lies beyond the interactions we have.
