THAITAI FEVER - STAGE 3 | how to fix a leaky roof in rainy days

All things are impermanent, carry on decaying and vanishing toward an oblivion and non-existence condition. While we accept and compromise the deterioration, we keep in mind about maintenance, not for a neat appearance but to expand the relationship between human, among scattered forms, and to overcome the conscious mind which was fully engaged.

 

Through the 6 month interrelated experience that occurred here at the OCAC, within the dimension of space and time, it has built a relationship between each different composition inside itself…



This 3rd stage is not only the conversation between space and its proprietor, but also the come-and-go, completed-or-unfinished fiction of every single space traveler.



From 15 August 2012 to 15 February 2013 is the duration of OCAC Bangkok Project. Reviewing this move-in journey from its commencement to the end, there is achievement of material collecting and community connection, while there are still more left to be finished. However, what is more important for us is to remember all the participants we met during the time.


The repair process here also refers to the reading and the maintenance of this space. Therefore, we endeavored to invite each artist and friend who has ever participated in ThaiTai project and the OCAC Bangkok project to join the process. No matter what special roles they played, providing technical profession, creation or simply manpower, we worked together to repair the historical spots left and caused by OCAC move-in project, many ever-hold exhibitions and events.


In this case, the space or building here stands for a media. Summoning its time, the narratives described through having relationship between the participants and stories happened, will be presented in the one-day exhibition together with its opening on 1st February, consists both actual and its fiction during OCAC’s journey.

    Technology Art

    I - Image: technology arts often explore the forms and qualities of images combining technology based machines. To support the re-representation of images we often have to work the computer as an engineer. While constructing, the intervention of tools and new softwares development, and the complex machine languages and image formation become the subject of artmaking.

    Post Document

    In 2006, a new generation of artists tried to develop a new language that can be part of our every-day living, rather than restricted by unchangeable classical procedures. The clues of these can be tracked in the previous Taipei Biennials, like Great Theatre of the World, Do You Believe in Reality?, and also Dirty Yoga in 2006.
