Residence Support “trans_2013-2014″


Period:2014.1.19 - 3.14[55days]

The prefix ‘trans’ means to go beyond, get across, cross, exchange, change and convert.

The Residence Support Program provides a time and place for artists to experience new encounters and carry out experiments to guide their future projects. Participating artists are expected to bring new ideas to the local culture and people while they, in turn, will hopefully acquire new perspectives through these fresh encounters. As a result of the residence program, the artists will convey their new experiences, gathered from the local lifestyle and our particular geographic situation, to their next destination. We hope that the residence program at Akiyoshidai International Art Village becomes a space for artists to go beyond cultural borders and expand their outlooks, exchange their unique understandings and establish relationships with fellow artists.

AIAV has supported over 100 domestic and international artists since its open in 1998. This fiscal year we will invite 6 artists from 6 countries. Over the period of 55 days of their stay, the artists will work on the theme “The Features of This Land”, encountering with Yamaguchi’s environment, culture and local people, all of which are different from their own.
