Topography of the Mind - Artist Talk & Open Studio by Residence Artist Sam Doctor

where-night-falls-3.jpg

Sydney based artist Sam Doctor is joining 3331's residence program throughout August. His art practice centering on video, sculpture, photography and performance can be seen as an ongoing confrontation between humankind and the environment, highlighting the fragility of mankind in the face of natural forces, exposing the Faustian side of human nature and our will to contain what cannot be contained.

"Surveying over six years of my previous works, it is striking to what extent landscaped has assumed a variety of different functions and faces. The work from 2006, Places we have never been documented landscapes ranging from mountains, mist and glacial terrains. Where night falls all day long (2008) depicted rock faces, a quarry and the remnants of burnt-out buildings. Furthermore my recent work A Song for the Stone Breakers (2011), I captured the landscape of a live sulphuric volcano billowing sallow smoke and ash surrounded by a steely, turquoise-coloured acid lake. In each of these cases landscape is used as a contemplative surface, a communicative mechanism, and a vehicle for conveying a complex and sometimes conflicted emotive state."
Sam Doctor

Through his residency Sam Doctor has been researching the emotional, spiritual and psychological states that landscape can provoke, exploring these through an experiential journey into the mystical practices of Japanese mountain asceticism. Through arduous mountain climbs combined with the peace and beauty of the natural world, he attempts to purify his perception, revitalize his energy and reconnect with his truest, while at the same time connecting and interacting with the high velocity of Tokyo's urban life, questioning how one might integrate with both environments without a sense of disengagement from one location to another; or if in fact one world revolves around the other. The outcomes of these investigations will be presented in an open studio to be held on 26th August.

3331 is glad to welcome artist Sam Doctor to the residence program for the month of August.

More updates on their way.

Profile
Sam Doctor b.1977 Sydney Australia lives and works in Sydney. He graduated from Sydney University, Sydney College of the Arts with Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honors) in 2006, and has currently finished A Masters of Research in Visual Arts. Doctor has exhibited extensively in both Sydney and Melbourne, in galleries including Chalk Horse and Sherman Galleries. His work has also been screened at Federation Square in Melbourne. More recently, Doctor has shown at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art and at the project space at CACSA in Adelaide. Doctor's art practice can be seen as an ongoing confrontation between humankind and the environment, highlighting the fragility of mankind in the face of natural forces, exposing the Faustian side of human nature and our will to contain what cannot be contained. His practice incorporates a range of artistic strategies: video, sculpture, photography and performance. Doctor also regularly collaborates with musical composers to construct soundscapes that either complement or feature as integral
parts of his work.

Residence Plan
Sam Doctor will be researching the emotional, spiritual and psychological States that landscape can provoke while conducting a residency at 3331. In particular his conceptual and practical framework will consist of an experiential journey into the mystical practices of Japanese mountain asceticism. He will try and seek experiential truth from the arduous climbs in sacred mountains. Through the peace and beauty of the natural world, he will purify his perception, revitalize his energy and reconnect with his truest. Although he will also have to return and connect and interact with the high velocity of Tokyo's urban life, the outcome will be a questioning of how one might integrate with both environments without a sense of disengagement from one location to another; or if in fact one world revolves around the other.

Residence Artist -Rob Ball - Closing Reception Event

July 3, 2012 / Open Residence / AIR3331

rob_photo.jpg

Sunday 8 July, 2pm

3331 Arts CYD welcomes you to a closing event to mark the conclusion of the residency of Australian artist, Rob Ball. For the past month, Rob has been working from the basement of 3331 Arts CYD on a mould-making production project, casting 'unburnables' (non-recyclable waste, including outmoded electronic technology. After making moulds, and casting prototypes, Rob took the sculptural objects to public spaces throughout Akihabara where he photographed them amongst retail outlets and consumers of electronic goods.
The project aims to prompt inquiry into the divergent relationship of old and new, the desired and the abandoned, while also investigating phenomenological considerations raised by assembling the cast objects in public space.
During the Closing Reception Rob will present an installation of sculptural prototypes, which will be recast for an exhibition at c3 Contemporary Artspace in Melbourne Australia in November 2012.
Light refreshments will be provided.

Residence Program: 1st February - 31st March 2012
Exhibition: 3rd March - 25th March 2012 12:00-19:00 3331 Arts Chiyoda Main Gallery B

In an artist in residence (AIR) program artists stay and make work in a specific location, building an intimate relationship with the people and place and release many of the stories, the history, the culture which is contained within the locality.

In this AIR3331 residence program being held at 3331 Arts Chiyoda acclaimed artists from India, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia take the first steps in a long term research project. In their 1 month stay what will they encounter? Who will they meet? How will they form a relationship with the neighbourhood?

In this exhibition the artists will present interviews, research documentation, plans for project development, while using the gallery as an open studio space in which visitors may engage with the live creation and investigations of the artists, this opportunity of exchange being a vital process for the artists.

Let's anticipate "An Alternative Tokyo" to be uncovered by these artists as they interact with the people of Tokyo, its international communities, experts and 3331 visitors, in an eclectic mix of people and places.

Sala Wong is a New Media artist. Her work manifests itself in digital media, installation, sculpture, wearable art, computer-controlled environments, and locative media. Her large-scale multimedia installations explore real and virtual spaces through augmentation. Most recently, her work investigates issues of diversity by means of documentary and intervention in public urban spaces. Her research concerns the interaction of spaces and everyday life. Space is the medium in which we sense and perceive the world. It is understood and shaped in countless ways. Throughout history, our grasp of space has continually evolved to the extent now that we not only comfortable conceiving of it - but also navigating it - in both concrete and abstract terms. Thus, space is an essential aspect of her research, and is expressed in her work in many different ways. She produces conceptually oriented art works that evaluate social, political and cultural issues by distilling the complexity of contemporary life into concise yet open-ended aesthetic experiences. Indeterminacy, site-specificity, interaction, process, participation and experience all play a part in her artistic practice. Sala Wong is currently associate professor at Indiana State University teaching Digital Art.

Peter Williams was born in Canada and currently resides in the United States. He is a New Media artist whose work playfully and poetically interprets and expresses the complications and contradictions of popular culture and media. Specializing in moving images, generative and participatory art, he makes work that is unstable - meeting, averting and translating the viewer's gaze. Contemporary media is elastic and chimerical; it more and more resembles us. Through his art, Williams struggles with this ever-deepening recursion. He is currently assistant professor at DePauw University teaching Digital and New Media Art.

Sala and Peter's work has been shown in Russia, Thailand, Japan, USA, Canada, Finland, Estonia, Czech Republic Singapore and Hong Kong.

Collaborative duo, Bianca Looney and Lucas Chirnside (aka SMLWRLD) will be artists in residence at 3331 Arts CYD during March / April 2011. SMLWRLD engages with research based art and design projects ranging in scale from small hand-crafted objects to integrated urban artworks and architecture. Their focus is on site specific processes and an engagement with the landscape, be it social, urban or natural

SMLWRLD will undertake their residency at 3331 fresh from completing the Zoetrope Bridge artwork commissioned by the City of Frankston for Major Projects Victoria. Other recent projects include the furniture system Polytopia collected by a US fashion label after a successful exhibition at the Design Museum London. SMLWRLD are currently working on a range of private and public commissions in Australia and Asia.

During their residency SMLWRLD plan to build on their Geophil manifesto which is an ongoing series of speculative urban landscapes. In the process of exploring Tokyo, where streets seldom bear names and addresses are often located via landmarks, SMLWRLD plans to engage with the local practices of giving and receiving directions. In the age of Google Maps they will return to the hand drawn sketch, questioning to what extent this phenomena still exists and what power these personal expressions have over the landscape of the city. Through participating in brief hand drawn exchanges SMLWRLD hope to document Tokyo's mapping vernacular, retrieving fragments of a speculative map made by Tokyo, in Tokyo.

In the process of collecting and recombining material, SMLWRLD are seeking alternative views and interpretations of place that emerge from a 'local' perspective. The results of their research will be translated via drawings, clippings, assemblages and stories, developed in an open studio environment within the creative hub of 3331 Arts CYD.

Mark has a wide ranging practice from sculpture, to performance, to netart and shows confidence in all of these vocabularies. Particularly in his performance work he has been exploring the line between one's own being and that of an imaginary character, how one is able to transform oneself through taking on a character in a performative context but how the line between persona and seld can "bleed" into one another to a point where they can not be extricated. He has particulary engaged in this discourse through participation in an event organized by performance artist Brody Condon in LA.

Mark is not only an artist but also a curator and arts consultant. He is involved in a number of large scale projects in Ireland and runs his own creative arts organization. He cast an insightful and critical eye over the art scene in Tokyo, offering his own informed response to what he has been met with here. Taking on the stimulation from the city and its creative channels Mark has also pursued a number of artistic experiments using the simple materials he finds around him.

Blank Noise is a volunteer led community arts collective that builds public discourse towards the issue of street sexual harassment; 'eve teasing'.

In its current phase Blank Noise takes the form of a public conversation. We build testimonials of street sexual harassment and disperse them back in the public. We try and engage the 3 groups ; the spectator, the survivor and the potential perpetrator while stressing that the 3 roles are interchangeable i.e. the perpetrator is a victim in one kind of view etc. The Internet is a medium that allows us to tread on this territory.

We seek to establish street sexual harassment as an issue that concerns male attitudes as much as it is a woman's issue. Blank Noise also seeks to define boundaries between wooing ,flirting, harassment, violation. There are Blank Noise blogs that invite spectators, survivors and men to share their understanding of street sexual harassment.

I believe human problems remains the same since the prehistoric time, it has always been about survival. Few things needed for human to be able to live are air, water, food, shelter, and clothes (depend on the climate). These necessities were the foundation of the birth of culture. I have been doing some works and projects using food or meal as the basic idea because these are the common thing anyone can relate to, food are the root of many problems but also a trigger of many great inventions. It seems like modern cultures has grown very complex so they need to face longer process to survive, people have to have a job to earn some money so they can buy food to survive where in the past or more traditional societies people grow or hunt their food.

Japan has been a role model for some developing countries in ASIA like Indonesia for its modernity and advance technology achievement. Electronic goods and gadgets probably one of the symbols of the modern society. But the recession seems to have great impact on them, it's interesting to learn why and how this recession change or maybe gave birth to new thinking about survival among this community.

Yamoka Sakiko

I define my art-works as sculptures depicting action and time and relationship between artist and audience, artist and materials, in which I attempt to create an example of the human condition. Human beings are contradictory creatures. When one is giving a presentation of any kind to one's society, it is necessary to unify thoughts and focus in order to avoid conflict; however, by doing so, one ends up losing a second or a third sense. I am interested with these senses that can be got rid of "extra senses". In my art-works, I often involve an audience and materials, neither of which I can control well. Audience is a kind of others in a society for me. And most of materials I chose are everyday necessities for us. Both are typical objects for human condition in our life.

Elisabeth pursues a highly participatory and socially engaged practice which questions the structures and social norms of society. Elisabeth Smolarz has been involved in a long term project "The One Hundred Dollar Project" which is being carried out in all the G8+5 member countries, questioning what people will do for one hundred dollars for 1 hour of work. This project is to be realized as a large scale video installation, and Japan will form the 10th installment. Smolarz collaborated with Tokyo residents in the realization of this project, asking them "What will you do for $100?"

WAKE UP/ MAKE UP
I am looking for women who will allow me to photograph them right when they wake up and once they put make up on. You do not need to wear a lot make up. The project just shows the difference between the private and public image.
About the Project:
In 2003 I have started the Wake Up/ Make Up Project. Each morning I take a picture of myself immediately after I wake up and once I have put make up on and am ready to leave my apartment.
The project stems from the realization that women only show their unadorned self to a selected group of people. For most women it is only the close family that sees them without make up. The project grew to include other women. The ongoing photography project highlights the difference of the public image and the private one.

Art Matters 

April & May 2011

Japan has suffered a great deal from the devastating earthquake and tsunami and we are all led to question what is important to us at this time. And as we consider such things we can only come to an even stronger conclusion as to the significance of art. It is a time to prove this significance.

3331 is calling for artists who wish to undertake this challenge and present their own reading of the power of art. In a time of difficulty what makes art matter? What role can art play in our lives? What meaning can it hold for us? We invite artists to face these questions and pursue personal answers at a time when such matters can not be ignored.

3331 is able to provide accommodation and studio facilities for artists, as well as an opportunity to give a presentation with regard their work to a select audience/general public, along with thorough support being offered towards the artists' projects.

If you are interested to join this program please contact Emma Ota at info@en.3331.jp +81 3-6803-2441 as soon as possible
