Porapara – Stone & Water International artists residency program-2010

  • ASIAN ARTIST EXCHANGE RESIDENCY PROGRAM Stone and water (SK) and Porapara Space for Artists.

Supplement Space STONE&WATER is a nonprofit multi-arts space
situated on the footholds of Anyang River and non-operating
space of Seoksu Market, claiming to support “art in every day”
based on “public realm”, “locality” and “ecology”. Its aim
is to propel various experimental artistic activities and
projects through which art and life meet. The representative
projects that STONE&WATER directed in the last 8 years
include the opening exhibition “Living Furniture Exhibition”
in 2002, “Revival Exhibition” in 2003 which used the old
Anyang police station and jail, “2004 Anyang River Project-FLOW”
which linked the shutdown Samdeok Papermill and Anyang River
in 2004, “Seoksu Market Project” from 2005-2007, and “Educational
Art Project” from 2006-2007. Through developing the various art
and cultural programs through such activities, STONE&WATER has
contributed to the development in art and culture of the local
area, as well as having an impact on not only the art world but
in many areas of society.

Managing the international residency program which makes a close
contact with the local community through transforming the idle
space within the traditional Seoksu Market in Anyang into a
creative space, STONE&WATER has organized a project since 2007
that merges residency programs, festivals, education, and volunteer
programs under the name “Seoksu Art Project (SAP)”.
The SAP has been performing the role of a “global” platform of
communication between the local and the global and establishing
itself as a core mid-to-long-term project of STONE&WATER, which
encompasses various artistic activities initiated by the
an institution so far.
