[ENGLISH BELOW]

アーティスト・イン・レジデンスをテーマに全国から集った参加者が講師とともに思考し、多様な実践のあり方を探る、2泊3日の合宿型ワークショップ「AIR CAMP(エアキャンプ)」。3年目となる「AIR CAMP 2017」は、これまで開催してきた北海道・札幌を飛び出し、陸前高田で開催します。
今年度のテーマは、「生活と創造」。東日本大震災から6年を経て、目まぐるしく変化してきた陸前高田において、今一度、AIRの原点と言える「芸術活動を行いながら、どのように生活を創るか」ということについて考えてみることにしました。陸前高田に暮らす人々の心の復興を目的に立ち上げられた「陸前高田AIR」、著しい経済・社会的発展と共に、実験的手法を取り入れた市民主導のプロジェクトを展開する東南アジアのアート・コレクティブなど、様々な地域において、それぞれの視点で取り組むプロジェクトを取り上げ、講師を招きます。AIRにおける「生活と創造」の可能性、地域との関係性、地域の生活から生まれる創造の可能性を、皆さんとともに見出すことができればと考えています。

    アーティスト、アクティヴィスト、The Land Foundation メンバー(タイ)

1980年タイ、バンコク生まれ。タイのアーティスト、アクティヴィスト、またキュレーションも行う。The Land Foundationのメンバー。ウバトサットのアートに対する考えは、彼自身を取り巻く関係性や、生活そのものを理解するために機能している。その主な手法は、一度は破局を体験した人々と集団で協働することによって、社会文化的変化を促進し、理解を深め、協働でのクリエイション意識を共有する活動を行うことである。彼の作品と活動は個としての捉えではなく、集団の中で個性を特定付けられる「中間的」なアーティストの存在として、理解することができる。従来とは違った考え方と実践によって、アートをコミュニティまたは生活の中に浸透させる、発想豊かで遊びに戯れるようなアーティストである。

English speakers are also welcome to join AIR CAMP! Some parts of the lectures will be translated. 


AIR CAMP is an intensive 3-day workshop focusing on artist-in-residence, in which participants explore and think about the possibility of how diverse residency practices could be. This marks the 3rd year of the workshop, and this year it will take place in Rikuzentakata, a city located in the north east of the mainland Japan.  

This year we will focus on ’Everyday Life and Creation’. Rikuzentakata has been making a drastic transition over the past 6 years since it was severely affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. In such context, we wanted to go back to the fundamental question about artist-in-residence – how could we create a living and sustain artistic practices? We invite guest lecturers from art organisations in Japan, Indonesia, Thailand and UK to present and introduce their practices and to share their knowledge and expertise in their own countries and regions and how their practises are associated within and engage with their communities and societies. This workshop is organised in partnership with Rikuzentakata AIR, which was initiated to help relieve local people from the effect of the disasters.


Hisashi Shibata, Director of NPO S-AIR

Guest Organisations


The Land Foundation (Thailand)

http://www.thelandfoundation.org

It all started in 1998, when Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and Kamin Lertchaiprasert acquired a piece of land in a village Near Chiang Mai, Thailand, in order to start a new land use project. An art centre was built there in 2002, and the actual Land Foundation was founded in 2004. It is an alternative society, developing arts based on interaction and information sharing, sustainable agriculture and self-development through meditation. Up to now they have been experimenting community building projects, whose models are even been used overseas.


Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society (Indonesia)

http://www.cemeti.org

Founded in 1988 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia as a site for exchange, providing space for artists to exhibit their work. In 1995, the then newly founded Cemeti Foundation (since 2007 operating independently as Indonesian Visual Art Archive, IVAA) was the first organization to start documenting contemporary visual art in Indonesia.

Now in its 30th year, Cemeti’s artist founders Nindityo Adipurnomo and Mella Jaarsma, have stepped aside from the day-to-day running of the organization, staying on to guide and advise as chairs of the board. As a new team takes the helm, we want to take a moment for public reflection, thinking collectively with you about the possible futures of Cemeti. Part of this process is the changing of Cemeti’s name from the former Cemeti Art House to Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society. Our new subtitle takes as a starting point the idea of “instituting” as a collective social process in which we find forms for shared urgencies and ideologies.


Lifepatch – citizen initiative in art, science and technology (Indonesia)

http://lifepatch.org

Lifepatch is a cross-disciplinary organisation working on art, science and technology. Based in Jakarta, Indonesia, it was formed in 2012 in order to research, explore, and develop the presence of technology, natural resources, and human resources in the surrounding areas. They also made a lot of installation art in festivals, including the Jakarta and Yogyakarta Biennales. Their goal is to provide a wider space for the diversity of member practices and spur the creativity of each member in a role in a collaborative activity. Do It Yourself (DIY) and Do It With Others (DIWO) is the passion that Lifepatch holds in practice to spur the emergence of a new and straightforward pattern and system of individual and community creative processes, as well as interaction between individuals in the community work series. Willing to make more open its activities and development results to the public, Lifepatch initially moved by relying on communication over the internet. As of now, in order to improve the collaboration between various people and communities, and share their development outcomes, they opened a studio aiming to build domestic and international collaboration bridges. They are having many workshops on fermentation process, programming and other technologies. In 2014, they started an art project called “HackteriaLab” using open source, in collaboration with Hackteria Network.


Shinano Primitive Sense Art Festival (Japan)

http://primitive-sense-art.nishimarukan.com/

The eighth year primitive sensory art festival does the festival itself. Festival is a place of meeting beyond genre, crossing generations, the ultimate workshop. Art = stage. Body = dance. Sound = song, music, word spirit. Food = Feast, we create the festival as a total art. Artists as Marebito [spirits from divine realm] who visit from the outside make the festival with people in the land, people visiting the land. We create the “The Water’s Edge Ritual” on the shores of Lake Kisaki, where the water begins.



Organiser


NPO S-AIR

http://s-air.org

NPO S-AIR was established in 1999 with partial funding by The Agency for Cultural Affairs, to run an artist-in-residence programme in Sapporo, Japan. Since it was approved to be a non-profit organisation in 2005, S-AIR started a collaborative residency project with ICC, in which we have been building networks with Japanese and international artists as well as art institutions in Japan and overseas. Until now, S-AIR has hosted 92 participants in total from 36 countries over the period of 18 years.



Partner Organisations


Natsukashii Mirai Sozo Co.

http://www.natsu-mi.jp/

Natsukashii Mirai Sozo Co. is a general incorporated association / social business network cooperation based company working on reconstruction, established in September 2011, aiming to support Rikuzentakata managers, and is considered as Iwate prefecture small to medium companies entrepreneurs association. Their purpose is to build a better social capital future, developing projects solving social issues with the use of local social resources. Aiming to employ about 500 persons, after having promoted several businesses, they are planning to stop their development cooperation activity within 10 years.


Rikuzentakata Artist in Residence Program

http://rikuzentakataair.com/

Initiated in early winter 2013, the Rikuzentakata Artist-in-Residence Program is an initiative that aims to bring domestic and overseas artists who are drawn to Tohoku to reside in its community and, while nestled among the lives of the residents, gather important memories and record and convey their experiences. Mediated through video, music, photos, and dance connecting traditions with the present, the artists researched the thoughts or things of people that have been physically lost, attempting expressions through visual or physical movement to leave behind subtle memories. We hope the program would be a place, in which everyone can reflect on thoughts, the present, past, and the reminiscent future.

Otaru Fable – 小樽寓言 by Chang Yoong Chia
(S-AIR 2016 – RESIDENCY PROGRAMMES – 別冊)

Otaru Fable

S-AIRの記録集は18年間のうち15年間はA5版でしたが、少し大きな変型のサイズに変えました。日本の習慣的な書店のブックカバーのような装丁にし、別冊で昨年の滞在制作で話題となったヨンチア・チャンの帆立貝62枚に描かれた「小樽寓話」を完全収録。

S-AIR catalogue had been an A5 publication during 15 out of 18 years, but we changed for a different size, a bit bigger. It’s wrapped in a kind of “book cover” you always get from Japanese book shops. In a supplement, you can also find a complete edition of Chang Yoong Chia’s “Otaru Fable” series, which was drawn on 62 scallop shells!
