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
POLYTOPIA – It’s not a Utopia or a Dystopia, neither a Heterotopia
