Purpose of the residency
tokyo ultranature | ultranature in japan
- Nature is one of the topics of ultranature. A research will be dedicated to this theme. Nature is strongly felt in Tokyo: it is revealed by its dedication, its tradition and festivities and on the other hand by its powerful presence and the peculiar geology of its territory. Ultranature will cooperate with its citizens and the institutions to realize artworks concerning their relation to nature.
- Everyday: Ultranature will try to depict its coexisting rhythms and let them react to the artists' different perceptions of time and space. For this proposal desires, projections, fears, dreams will represent a possible approach to a country's feeling and expression.
- Tokyo5seconds is a visual collaboration which invites citizens to dialogue with the artists. An instant display of the working on process will be projected in different, chosen sites of Tokyo.
