We had to stand on the ground, however. Temporary measures became the New Normal, and our worries moved on from the next day or month to the life of our children on Earth. That is the reason why the 2021 ACC_R stayed on the page of biophilia. The ACC_R Residency Exhibition, Beyond Biophilia, will be held at the ground level of the ACC Creation Space 2. The space without elevation presents the necessary condition for equal coexistence.
In this critical zone, a geographical space where all life on Earth coexists, we now find wind, moss, and garlic. Here, we wish to cast our gaze into the world of the “beyond”—beyond the things that meet our gaze and embrace to the things that have made us who we are today, the ones that sustain the Earth outside our gaze. In imagining dystopia, the power of art sometimes comes across as weak, but art always finds our imagination of the future, and solidarity finds the possibility for change. We hope that this space, with the lives in here, will be an opportunity for you to imagine the world beyond, together.
2021’s ACC_R Residency continued 2020’s theme, “Biophilia (Love of Life),” into a discussion of the relationship between one and the world, and art and technology in pursuit of a better life under the theme “Beyond Biophilia.”
Participants took part in the orientation and workshop programs to share their ideas and creative processes. They exchanged inspirations and completed their work through an expert matching program that provided multilateral and intensive advice about their work. Furthermore, they took part in a research tour, which explored the values of ACC (democracy, human rights, and peace) and established the foundations of constructing and expanding a network between the participants and the Asia Culture Center.
In the future, ACC_R Residency will continue its dedication to being “a window of Asian culture to the world,” and thus, establish a foundation for knowledge, technology, and experience to support creative talent.
ACC_R Creators supports experiments based on art and technology, testing creative and future-oriented ideas. Specialists in various fields, such as artists, researchers, and engineers, are invited to use the infrastructure of ACT Studio to create their own projects and lead the overall process from planning, researching, and production to collaboration and exhibition.
