Will extreme change in climate and environment trigger an artist's creative output? This winter 2010, the very first collaboration between Studiokura from Fukuoka, Japan and INSTINC from Singapore will be launched. One artist will be chosen to experience this clash of the extremes; a village life in Japan vs. city life in Singapore. Welcome to these two very different but interesting artist residencies! Call for submission is now open.

Profile of Studio Kura, Japan(www.studiokura.info)
Studio Kura is located in the city of Itoshima, a prefecture of Fukuoka. Set against a backdrop of mountains and rice fields in the countryside, the studio itself is housed in a former rice warehouse. Located on a compound amid traditional Japanese homes and gardens, the studio is ideal for artists looking for a peaceful place to make work and engage with Japanese culture.
By train and car, the studio is 40 minutes to Fukuoka, which is the main city in the Island of Kyushu. Artists will be supplied with their own apartment and studio. Available studio space is 20 meters square with newly furbished workshop and living space measuring at approximately 40m square. Food is provided.

Profile of INSTINC, Singapore(www.instinc.com)
Singapore is a unique, dynamic city rich in contrast and colour, you'll find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture here. Brimming with energy, this little island in Southeast Asia embodies the best of both East and West.
INSTINC is located in the heart of the city, in Clarke quay and its intrinsic vision is committed in supporting all forms of contemporary art and fostering friendships and collaborations with other artists. There is an etching press that can print up to 60cm by 90cm here. Artists who have non-toxic printmaking background and an interest to work with the press, either on its own or combine with other media will be given priority in the selection process. We aim to offer artists an opportunity to work in a new surrounding in sunny island Singapore and to interact with local artists and to contemplate upon and develop their practice and be inspired. There is no pressure to deliver finished works, however, artist should make productive use of their time and pro-actively engage with other resident artists and the wider environment.
こんばんは。寒いですね。今年は早起きを心がけていますが、心が折れそうです。ちょっと前まで南国にいたことが本当に夢のようです。一週間も経ってないのにすごく昔のことのように思います。

シンガポールで作った作品と展示のときの写真をいくつかアップします。向こうでは初手描きアニメーションを作りました。まずprocessingでコードを書いてビデオを作り、それをなぞりながら色鉛筆で描いては写真にとり、描いては写真に撮りをひたすら繰り返しアニメーションにしました。

画像はデータが重すぎてアップできませんでした。今度日本で展示するときみてください!

Japanese artist Hirofumi Matsuzaki's first ever solo exhibition in Singapore.

Hirofumi has been living in two countries, Berlin and Japan since 2005. He works with acrylic, paintbrush and computer and is well-known for his intricate, three-dimensional paintings that fluctuate between abstraction and representation.

During Hirofumi’s residency in INSTINC, he will be experimenting with a new body of works titled as "New Connection". For this series, one video and one painting were created. In this video, there will be movement of white balls created through computer-programming. The balls will repeat to connect and diverge from each other. Small paintings will be created from the still shots of this video clip. Eventually, these small paintings will be re-constructed to form one big painting. The minimal form ball, which is like an organic substance, will continue to connect and diverge which showed as a metaphor of modern network society. This is the first time that artist Hirofumi is fusing programming and visual art.

Hirofumi Matsuzaki-JAPAN(PAINTER)

SY:Welcome to Singapore. You told me you have been to Singapore for one day in the past for transit. Now, having been here for about 10 days, what is your second impression of Singapore?
HM: l am very surprised.... I cannot believe that within such a small country,there are so many different ethnic towns like little India, China town, big city etc.

SY: Can you tell us more about your art education and how you became an artist that paints in this style?
HM: I studied painting in Hiroshima. After graduation I studied at Hannover as guest student for 2 semesters and later I got a studio in Berlin Tacheles. So I moved to Berlin and was in there for 4years. As my training is in painting, I wanted to find a way: what I can do with painting at this moment in time.

SY:Generally Japanese are perfectionists and takes pride in all they do, like their packaging design for example. Do you think Japan culture influence your works in some ways?
HM: I didn’t think that Japanese are perfectionists. I think that I am influence in a way but I can’t tell exactly what.

SY: When and how did you discover using Processing-programming? When and why did you decide to incorporate into your body of works?
HM: In 2006, I read a book by John Maeda and was inspired to find out more about programming and eventually discovered processing.

SY: Your new works created @INSTINC are paintings and animations. Tell us more about this, the process ..etc
HM: First, I wrote a program for animation with processing and then using this program, I projected these images and drew the images with color pencil and took a picture for every frame. The animation consists of 2100 still shots. In my works, I’d like to create new relationship between programming and hand-created works.

SY: What is the current state of art in Japan? Are there many installations and videos?
HM: There are many different things. Now, I think there are many influences in the art scene from other fields like web, design, manga and even agriculture! How we work with this, How we connect, is very important, I think.

SY: You started Studiokura- International Residency Program in your home town in 2007... What was the inspiration and motivation behind this?
HM: I want to connect my home town with all over the world! Artists bring new ideas all the time. It’s wonderful!

SY: What is so special about Studio Kura?
HM: studio is ideal for artists looking for a peaceful place to make work and engage with Japanese culture.

SY: How to apply? Is it Open Submission? Or by-invitation only?
HM: You can apply with your portfolio and plan, what you want to do. Visit www.studiokura.info for more information.

SY:Tell us one thing non-art about yourself that we should know about you. (Something that will surprise us)
HM: I like Tiger Beer!

SY: Something that you cannot live without.
HM: Of course art and beer, my girlfriend.

テンプル

こんばんは。近くのインド人街リトル・インディアにいってきました。インドに言ったことないけどたぶんこれを*5したらインドっちゃろうね~とか思いながら散策。いい雰囲気です。いきなりもう一個別の国に来たみたい。バーにはサリーをまとった方がいたりして異国情緒だしまくりです。シンガポールはとても狭い国なのにいろんな人種が入り乱れ面白いです。多様性があり活気があります。ハウステンボスもいっそオランダ人街にしちまえば行きたい気持ちがわきそう。ふらふら飲み飲み歩いていたら駅がどこかわからなくなって帰れなくなりました。。またか。
singa2.jpg

あけましておめでとうございます。

2009年の最後にシンガポールで熱い漢(おとこ)に会いました。素晴らしい出会いがあるたびに、生きててよかったと思います。私もこの漢(おとこ)といずれ絡めるよう命を燃やしてがんばろう。精一杯生きてみようと。

誓いを新たに迎えた2010年最初の朝は壮絶な二日酔いでした。


今年も皆様どうぞよろしくお願いします。
