Where do we stand now?

A location is not a single location anymore

Land is not simply a geographical location

The relationship between between land and ancestors is blurred

A body is not an identified body

Spaces are losing a their physical location/specificity

Borders have now melted away

The physical contact that used to bridge the bodies, objects and lands is no longer meaningful everything is circulating in between

The land is now a multiplicity and the vernacular is becoming a fluid identity

We exist everywhere without any presence

What does locality/localization mean in this fluid time?

Where do we stand now for our co-existence, co-creation and co-breathing?

In this residency, we will try to co-create “POLYTOPIA” through different creative approaches to
locality, physicality, environment, gender, community and technology,
together with people of various backgrounds and identities
