3 creators, 3 projects: What you can do with a month (or three) in residency with AIR 3331 (Tokyo, Japan)

July 6, 2017 / Staff Blog

One draw of a self-initiated residency is the chance to work from scratch: from conceptualizing your project to doing hands-on exploration, and the final satisfaction of sharing your work -all with the added adventure of being in central Tokyo.

Here, the AIR 3331 residence program (run by the independent arts and community hub 3331 Arts Chiyoda) is a base for artists, curators and researchers from varied countries and practices. While playing host to such a wide array of people can be a challenge, it also makes space for unexpected encounters - the life source of creativity!

To go along with our current open call, let's take a look at how three creators achieved their projects:


Sunwoo Kim (Korea)
Residency length: 1 month

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 18.18.59.png

Fresh to Tokyo, Sunwoo began wandering the streets for imagery. Returning to Nishikicho Studio at the end of the day, the influence of the area on his new work was immediate. Working towards presenting his work at the shared open studio, Sunwoo met other artists working in Tokyo and even joined local cultural events like Kanda Festival. Sunwoo capped his residency with an artist talk, connecting 3331 Arts Chiyoda with his work with Eulji Design Art Project in Seoul. But it didn't end in Japan! Talks with 3331 Arts Chiyoda director and artist, Masato Nakamura lead to further discussion in Seoul... might this be the start of an international collaboration?!


Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge (Canada)
Residency length: 2 months

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 18.30.20.png

Evelyne dedicated her extra time in residency to not one, but three artwork series, which continue to develop today! Enlisting the support of AIR 3331 to spread the word, Evelyne independently sought out participants for her video series "Les Attentes", which was filmed in Nishikicho Studio, among other countries. Between shoots, her out-of-studio exploration spread from the most humble corners of 3331 Arts Chiyoda's renovated school building, to the seemingly infinite train system, researching spaces and filling her notebook with maps and memos. In culmination, her open studio featured a window-facing video projection from the residence bedroom. To facilitate the interaction, AIR 3331 staff went door-to-door to neighboring businesses and residences to inform of the public presentation -the reaction to a room seemingly filling with water was unforgettable!


Fiona McGurk (Scotland)
Residency length: 3 months

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 18.34.47.png

If your schedule allows, three months might be the best way to digs as deep as possible into the Tokyo art scene. There are numerous community events, exhibition receptions, an art fair and art festival held through 3331 Arts Chiyoda that change with the seasons.

After experimenting with her materials in Nishikicho Studio, Fiona rented extra space for a workshop inside 3331 Arts Chiyoda, where a diverse range of passers-by gather, each contributing bits of thoughts and words to her installation. As part of the Trans Arts Tokyo festival surrounding the residency in the Fall, Fiona opened her studio to the public, interacting with visitors. Finally, her in-studio exhibition caught the attention of community paper Gooddays, who chronicled her response to the local area.
