The Artist-in-Residence Program provides local and visiting artists, curators, and researchers with accomodation and studio facilities at the Tile Factory, providing a unique space for the creation, development and exchange of creative ideas and projects. The program serves most of all as a meeting place for artists: facilitating creative encounters, discussions and the exchange of experiences, and then opening these up to the public, acting as a conduit to the outside world.

In a sense, the residency acts as an incubator for the creation and exchange of ideas, experiences and representations. In the course of residency, our public - both within the region and further afield - are encouraged to engage with activities planned to help create awareness of one's own cultural difference and uniqueness. Each artist is given the opportunity to propose and focus on a particular project while in residence, which may be influenced or inspired by the reality of daily life in the city, the country and the region. Opportunities to work with local artists and the local community during the residencies will be plentiful and strongly encouraged.  

Applications are currently closed.

Lan Hungh

Seven Shanzhai Pieces (working title) is a two part durational performance, part of the 2011 Jerusalem Show: On/Off Language.  Lan Hungh approaches “language” from an artistic point of view as a communicative media and as a means for defining things in an art context. His multidisciplinary training and background forces him to rethink the existence of a categorized system. System avoids confusion and helps for communication, but artists will break it anyway because of the desire of making innovation, and someone will put this new thing in a new invented category.

----------------------------------------------

Lan Hungh graduated from Taiwan University of Arts. Hungh's practice consists of performance, music, installations, videos, sculptures and curating. He explores the concept of everyday and life's intimacies. With a mixture of cultures, his performance functions as a diary and incorporates his personal experience of music and movement.

Here is his definition of "performance art":  when the process becomes more interesting or important than the result, the result is the process. We call it "performance" today, because we haven't found any better category to put it in.
