ダイロッカン:dai6okkan 2024 | 6okken – Yamanashi, Japan | Residency Art Festival

6okken will hold a month-long residency art festival 'dai 6okkan 2024' from March 1 – 31, 2024. 18 artists are invited to join the artist residency (March 18 – 31) and the art festival (March 30 – 31). 

Since 2022, 6okken has been operating an 'artist-run residence' in Kawaguchiko Town, Yamanashi Prefecture, based in six cottages, where living/expressive activities/management are combined, participating in art festivals across the country, collaborating with art institutions worldwide, and developing and practicing camp-based workshops.

Through cross-disciplinary dialogue with the 'outside', we are working to increase the number of'perspectives that would disappear from the world if we let go of them' and the environment to protect them.

Artists from abroad will participate in the camp, making it a site for artistic practice that transcends language barriers. In addition to the main programme mentioned above, the camp will propagate knowledge, inspiration and networks of new artistic practices from the foot of Mt Fuji through exchange programmes with people from art festivals, universities and cultural organizations from Japan and abroad, community lunches with local people and online transmission throughout the month.

レベルの行動様式をつかさどっています。

October 4 – 6, 2023
Tokyo – Japan 


家を身に纏う 建築がジュエリーになる時

データや情報によって生活が支配される今、私たちは物理的空間との係
を取り戻す必要に迫られています。このワークショップでは、具体的な建築物を考察することで、単なる機能という枠を超え、私たちの内面と外界に安定をもたらす美や装飾を感じさせる構造や形態に対する認識を深めていきます。それぞれが独自のやり方で身体と関わり合うジュエリーと建築というふたつの芸術形態をめぐる新たな拡張されたイマジネーションは、違う素材や次元へと変換されることで、広がりを見せることでしょう。その目的は、新たな認識を通じ、個性や自己イメージに対して建築とジュエリーの双方がもちうる可能性を体験し、理解することにあります。大きなものとごく小さなものである建築とジュエリーが持つスケールは、それぞれが独自の性質のもと、社会におけるやり取りやコミュニケーションの中で交わされる様々なレベルの行動様式をつかさどっています。

スーザン・ピーチ(SCHMUCK  創始者)およびガビ・シリッグ(ベルリン芸術大学 空間および展覧会デザイン講座教授)の2名のドイツ人アーティストによるワークショップ。


wearable houses – how jewellery from architecture grows

At a time when informations and data dominate our lives, there is an urgent need to re-engage with physical space. By exploring specific architectural situations, we will develop an awareness of structures and forms that enable us to perceive beauty and the ornamental, giving stability to our inner and outer world going beyond pure function.

Through transmissions into other materials and dimensions, a new and expanded imagination of jewellery and architecture, two artistic forms that relate to the body in a very specific way, enfolds.

The aim is to experience and understand the potential of both for one's own personality and self-image through new perceptions. From large to very small, jewellery and architecture, in their very own quality, hold a scale for multilayered modes of action in social interaction and communication.

A workshop by the German artists Susan Pietzsch (founder of SCHMUCK2) and Gabi Schillig (Studio for Dialogical Spaces, Berlin & professor for Spatial and Exhibition Design at the Berlin University of the Arts).
