An Intuition, special taste for the unexpected, will take shape through a game with the situation through performances, readings or other interventions. The main goal of this process is to immerse ourselves in uncertain positions opening a new way of thinking: the forms’ analysis built by encounters, exchanges and hospitality in that case. My project comes from a perception.

When it is still a mysterious area to talk about spirituality, our bodies become our direct subject of examining, a path to our mind. What exactly can we read from our bodies? In the fragmented and hollow everyday living, what kind of functioning is in our body and mind? This is the beginning of this project. I want to start a exploration journey from my own bodily experiencing.

Our One Work Exhibition Project perpetuates the objective (spirit/aim) with which Open-Contemporary Art Center was founded. We introduce contemporary artists who possess a creative vocabulary by having them participate in year-round alternative exhibitions, in which a single piece is exhibited at a time. We invite curators to select the works of five or six artists for every exhibition — each lasting from Tuesday to Thursday. During the exhibition,  artists conduct dialogues with the audience by inviting them to speak. Through conversing with other artists, the creators may re-examine their works. Also, following the conclusion of all exhibitions, we will invite professional art critics along will all participating artists to hold a large seminar concerning the project series.
