We have been thinking about these questions all the time：What exactly is art? What is the value of art? Perhaps only through the artist's actual work and thinking, can we get some clues about these questions. So what exactly is the artist's real work? For that, we organized the first "Studio Annual Artist Talk"，hoping through the artists' sharing and thinking could annotate the possibility of the world.For this time, we invited five groups of artists from different countries and work with different disciplines to share their work experience and artistic focus.Carina Hesper and Jan Misker, a couple of artists from the Netherlands, introduced us to their art projects since 2012 in Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, Beijing. Including "Lucky Flowers", "50 Faces", "Like A Pearl In My Hand", etc., and shared their work experience in the STUDIO PROJECT this month and their new inspirations, "If you once go to China, you always come back." Carina concluded.Carina Hesper & Jan MiskerNew Zealander Korean artist Sena Park shared with us the cultural misreadings she experienced in her cross-national and cross-cultural life experience and her inspiration from differences between her stereotypical imagination and the real environment when she was in Mongolia. It can be said that these cultural misreadings have become important nutrients for her artistic creation. In addition, she also shared some new perspectives brought to her by what she saw and heard in China.Zhang Yi shared stories that she called they were still in the "unclear" stage. Including the connection between the traditional chignon and louse, Destroy the Four Olds and broken shoes, and the grandpa's coat that was gradually broke down from generation to generation. Showed that she did not deliberately arrange plans and restrictions, let everything begin naturally, and gradually discover her purpose step by step through the development of the work itself.Ou Ming shared that he started with the pinhole camera model and gradually made his own cameras, accompanied by the experience of darkroom amplification, developing films, experimenting with wet plate collodion. And he was obsessed with creating small scenes and small worlds that seemed can work on their own and filmed them. "Photo is not about copy of the world, but completely another world. The photo is not a fixed image. You can actually arrange and place your idea in this world. A film, just like a tunnel of time and space, arouses your feelings of the time."Christopher Salvito, one member of the Passepartout Duo, told us about their traveling and residency projects. By integrating into different cultures around the world and cooperating with composers, visual artists and dancers, they have been exploring the relationship between the man and the sound. Chris also brought us a short solo from their work "As We Speak".Passepartout Duo (Christopher Salvito )After the artist's talk, there were the party with STUDIO SPACE tour and free talk.What is art? Even though we still can't provide a standard answer, but when we talk about someone's real work, we always get an angle on this question.
Thanks to all the artists for sharing. Thank all the staff for their work. And most importantly, thank the friends who came staying with us for more than 6houres for listening!The full live video will be released later, please stay tuned!
