Theertha

Theertha 是一位藝術家領導的計劃,成立於2000年,總部位於斯里蘭卡的科倫坡。

Theertha 是位於斯里蘭卡的藝術家自營空間。自2000年成立以來,Theertha 進行大量的藝術活動。由11位視覺藝術家發起,透過斯里蘭卡國際藝術家研討會促進國際藝術交流,並擴大其活動範圍,包括藝術教師培訓、出版藝術/文化刊物、藝術家工作坊,及國際和本地展覽。透過這些活動,Theertha 帶來正面影響,在藝術學生和科倫坡的藝術家社區以及該地區的某些社區中喚起人們對當代藝術及其意識形態的認識。透過他們的藝術出版物,他們還試圖將有關當代藝術/文化問題的討論擴大傳播至整個斯里蘭卡。

Theertha 支持90年代潮流的藝術,挑戰了藝術創作中的現有美學、方法論和意識形態,一直強調並鼓勵藝術家的創新和實驗思想。Theertha 展示了一些當代藝術家的創新作品。Theertha 贊助斯里蘭卡較新的藝術形式,例如行為藝術和裝置藝術,使其獲得擴大及發展的機會。

這些年來,Theertha 需要展覽空間的活動大增,與此同時,斯里蘭卡藝術界不斷壯大,全球化擴大了藝術家的目標,抱負和需求,可為本地和國際觀眾提供更大的知名度和藝術展示機制的設施難以滿足國際標準和要求。 因此,Theertha 於2007年建立了自己的藝術空間替代方案 “紅點畫廊”,以展示計劃中產生的實驗性藝術和當代藝術。

為了替本地藝術家開闢機遇並保持國際聯繫,Theertha 投入了大量的精力,資源和專業知識,與國際藝術經理,藝術家,藝術機構和資助機構建立密切的關係。 Theertha 透過定期舉行的國際藝術研討會和駐場活動,促進了藝術家的流動性。 透過這些活動,Theertha 成為 “Network” 的創始合夥人,Network 是一家聯合南亞藝術機構的組織,包含巴基斯坦(Vasl),印度(Khoj),尼泊爾(Sutra)和孟加拉(Britto Arts Trust) 。 在Theertha 成立的15年中,還聯合了其他藝術機構,這讓國際和斯里蘭卡接軌並有許多有趣且創新的合作。

目前,Theertha 位於斯里蘭卡 Borella 的 D. S. Senanayake Mawatha 39 / 4A。

Theertha is an artists’ led initiative, found in 2000, based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Theertha is an autonomous, artist-led non-profit initiative based in Colombo. Theertha has undertaken a considerable amount of art activities since its inception in 2000. First, started by 11 visual artists to facilitate international art exchange through international artist workshops in Sri Lanka, it has expanded its activities to include art education through art teacher training, publications on art/culture, workshops for artists, international and local exhibitions. Through these activities, Theertha has intervened positively to create awareness on the contemporary art and its ideologies among the art students and the artists’ community-based in Colombo and selected communities in the regional areas. Through their art publication, they also have tried to disseminate discussions on current art/ culture issues to a larger community within Sri Lanka.

Theertha, who support the art of the 90’s trend which challenged the existing aesthetics, methodologies, and ideology in art making has always emphasized and encouraged innovative and experimental ideas among artists. Theertha has showcased some of the innovative artworks done by contemporary artists. Through the patronage of Theertha the relatively new art forms to Sri Lanka such as performance art and installation got the opportunity and forums to expand and evolve.

Theertha activities that need exhibition spaces increased considerably over the years, While, Sri Lankan art community grew and the global connections have expanded the goals, aspirations, and needs of artists, the infrastructure to support greater visibility and art presentations mechanisms to local and international audiences have been slow to meet international standards and requirements. Therefore, Theertha established its own alternative art space ‘Red Dot Gallery’ in 2007 in order to showcase the experimental and contemporary art produced within its programs.

To open up avenues for local artists and maintain connection internationally Theertha invests a considerable amount of their energy, resources, and expertise on building up close relations with international art managers, artists, art institutions and funding bodies. Theertha facilitated artists’ mobility through its regularly held international art workshops and residencies. As a result of these activities, Theertha was able to be a founding partner of the ‘Network’, a South Asia based network of artists with Pakistan (Vasl), India (Khoj), Nepal (Sutra) and Bangladesh (Britto Arts Trust). Other networks have been formed and connections expanded over the 15 years of Theertha’s existence, which has resulted in interesting and innovative collaborations internationally and in Sri Lanka.

At present Theertha is housed at 39/4A, D. S. Senanayake Mawatha, Borella, Sri Lanka.

Shunya Collective

Shunya Collective

Shunya 的意思是無、零、不存在、空,也是遠離短暫政體與社會的一群個體。2012年,原先在孟買的 Nikhil Raunak、Amol Patil、Sachin Bonde、Poonam Jain、Yogesh Barve、Rupali Patil、Prabhakar Pachpute 在 Clark House Initiative 相遇,當時成員們剛從印度三所不同的大學畢業,來自藝術領域不同的學科。他們藉由參數探索藝術場景的可能性與建築的不同特性。實踐 Shunya 的方式並不限於展演空間,更可向外延伸到社區建築,成為某種抵抗含義:製作壁畫、張貼藝術家創作的海報於公共空間、進行公共表演、在公共空間展示文件或發放文宣,使得平常沒機會接觸的人們有更多詮釋的空間。什麼是社區的聲音?當社區聲音從不同的地形迴響並於現有的政治、社會變化和時間的基礎上牽動我們,什麼是重要的? 集體行為真的是集體嗎?作者身份的作用為何?我們應如何認知?

┃了解更多:Shunya Collective-Facebook

Shunya means void, cipher, non- existence or it could mean vacant as well. Shunya can also be a group of secluding individual existence in transitory politics and society. Initially based in Bombay the group of people: Nikhil Raunak, Amol Patil, Sachin Bonde, Poonam Jain, Yogesh Barve, Rupali Patil and Prabhakar Pachpute who met gradually at Clark House Initiative in 2012. The members were recent graduates from three different universities in India perceiving multi-disciplinary subjects in art. The group explores the possibilities of participation in an art scene that closed door through and architecture of discrimination, based on parameters.The practice of Shunya is not restricted in the form of exhibition space. It’s output stretches to the community architecture, which becomes part of the resistance. Making murals, using posters made by artist and sticking them on public walls and performance. Taking archive and using it in public spaces or distributing pamphlets, keeping it open to the interpretation for those who hardly have access to it.
