NO ARTISTS ALLOWED

 

No artists are allowed here. Not to watch, not to make, not to pretend to know what this is about. This is about play. Experimenting. Experiencing. Wishful thinking. The future. The past. Transparency. Freedom. Accessibility.

 

The boundaries that exist concerning the art world and market is an illusion. The emperor’s new clothes. We are playing with ideas of craft vs art, childlike views and experiences illustrated by one thousand paper cranes. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a Thousand Origami Cranes will be granted a wish by the Gods. The Children’s Peace Monument commemorates thousands of child victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. Thousands of origami cranes are offered to this memorial in the desire of a nuclear war-free world.

 

Our wish of peace with a Thousand Origami Cranes can be interpreted as ‘art for everyone’. The pigeons projected onto the cranes create a linear tension, the juxtaposition of live birds on the ground onto lifeless paper ones hanging from above.
