Incheon Art Platform (IAP) is pleased to announce the artists-in-residence for 2016. For IAP’s seventh year of artist residency, 35 teams of artists are selected after the open call in November 2015 and the selection process in the following December. Artists from seven different countries that include South Korea, Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Canada, and Poland, were selected through an international open call for which competition rate was as high as 16.2 to 1. The selected artists will stay in the city of Incheon from three months to a full year.

Incheon Foundation for Arts & Culture, the parent organization of IAP, expressed its high expectations for the results of the program as a number of selected artists show interest in the locality of Incheon, which is a harbor city, while many of them are also based in Incheon.

Among the participating artists, Mackerel Safranski is planning to reflect the urbanism of Incheon, the history and landscape of the city and their meanings under the backdrop of Incheon as a city where the old part of the city and the new city coexist. Seo Haeyoung will produce a series of works that connect and record the past and the present of Baega-do island, which is the hometown of the artist’s mother. Poet Kang Jeyoon will create a storytelling project based on his research of culture in islands such as Gyodong-do and Baengnyeong-do islands. Curator Chae Eunyoung will present her research on art criticism and curating the locality, which will be accompanied by a publication.

The international artists are also planning to present works based on their research in Incheon. Based on their practice of performance with a focus on traditional mythology, The Bite Back Movement (UK) is planning to present a work where the collected stories about gods and spirits in Incheon is reconstructed under the global context. Eric Scott Nelson (US) will present a performance throughout the city using his light-weight art sculptures. Other artists such as Wojciech Gilewicz and Grace Euna Kim are also planning to present works that take forms of public intervention or installation “in situ.”

During the residency period, an open studio for the public will be provided. The artists in the IAP residency will present the process of their work and share their creative outcomes with the visitors to their studios.
