Artistic Survival Tactics
The art project titled “Study on artistic survival methodology” is designed to explore ways of art serving as catalyst for making the world a better place. We want it to suggest how to translate life (ordinary life) into art worldwide for the sake of numerous people who have been thoroughly marginalized from the benefits of capitalism as widening gap between the rich and the poor and unheard class society start to grip the world.
The world history has seen a number of movements set towards finding a meeting point between real life and art and thereby delivering all people an equal opportunity to enjoy art, including Arts and Crafts Movement, promulgated by William Morris in late 19thcentury,and Bauhaus getting popularin Weimar, Germany, inearly 20th century. Now is the time for artists to infiltrate and get melted into ordinary life and display artworks mirroring reality as it is which we believe may contribute to creating better living conditions for all.
We, participating in 2015 D’Avignon OFF, experimented with the subject by using a number of objects(such as food, utensil and waste) as musical instrument, spontaneously weaving on-going incidents into a scenario to stage a play on the spot and displaying yoga performance designed to relax muscles getting rigid in the course of paid work under the cause of flashmop. We further moved onto agree that such attempt should be on display in a more concrete and practical way.
