PROGRAM

OPENING <HAVE NO WORDS>

HAVE NO WORDS is to explore the power/subversive power of art. The International participants will join the network group conference and on air live workshop. For 12hours they will see each other on their screens and listen to surrounding noise and sounds, but they will not talk. The way the participants perform and celebrate keeping silent is up to them and their technical possibilities. The performance is to celebrate the idea of international networking and cooperation in art projects. It is to establish the connection visually and in thought, reflexion and contemplation rather than in exchanging ideas through language and talk. Keeping silent face to face publicly for many hours means communicating by defying communication with spoken language, it may lead to unexpected action, ideas and response.

WORKSHOP REPORT NEPAL

TNeF workshop In Nepal, DANCE AND ART Therapy was a 24 hour workshop for the school students which aim to provide mental relief for the kids who experienced the devastated earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015. The earthquake had affected the whole country very badly the reason why most of the schools were not able to open for long time and only few were opened but parents were afraid to send their children because the country was feeling aftershocks continuously.

 

We divided 24 hours in to two and did one session in Nepal Adarsha Secondary School, which is a local government school in Kathmandu and another session in Bikalpa art center. Nepal Adarsha Secondary School generously supported us by allowing us to conduct our workshop with grade 6 and 7 students. The workshop took place on June 29~July 1 and July 6~8. All the students actively participated the workshop and showed their grate interest on dance and art therapy workshop.

 

At Bikalpa Art Center, we conducted the workshop every Saturdays for three hours. The workshop took place on 4, 11, 18 July. Though the number of student in Bikalpa Art Center is not as big as in Nepal Adarsha Secondary School, the participants enjoyed and showed their talent on a very high level.

 

The workshop dealt with earthquake and its effect on people’s life. The participants express their feelings through dance, drama, paintings and crafts.

Story

Against the background that main characters write a letter for celebrating the Parents’ Day which exists in Korea but not in Mongolia, the first scene is that Buderru and Toya, two main characters, write a letter to Boono. Buderru is poor but happy since he lives together with all other family members in harmony. On the other hand, Toya is rich but lives only with his mother since the parents divorced. Toya ignores Buderru but Buderru accidently discovers the letter that Toya wrote to his father and delivers letter to Toya’s father so Toya meets his father in decades.

She missed Mongolia in Russia but went to Korea and missed Mongolia again for a long period of time in Korea.

ZOLA POWER

Zola Chair causing self-variation by forgetting its duty!

Zola Chair causing self-variation since it cannot be just a chair any more! A driving shaft of neo-liberalism which runs like being crazy is out of myself(person) and repeats running continuously. Therefore, the artist focuses on the current situation and external environmental factors to make people living in the era of resignation go through self-variation. Therefore, the artist proposes other people to recognize that they go through self-variation, see what they think ‘valuable’ from a different perspective, and move and relocate what they see newly under this object project.
