  • Nine Dragon Heads 2006 in DMZ & JSA
    the world is my homeland Surinam which commemorate its 30 th year of Independence All these happenings were important for my performance I have seen the opera Der Zaubertflote The Magic Flute this masterpiece of Mozart is also well known for being one of the first important German spoken operas with a clear oriental infiltration with its mystique and symbolic influences That can be noticed by the introduction of an oriental prince who plays the flute and the hilarious bird catcher Papageno I have imagined them in a 18 th century costume decorated with feathers and little bells that recall to shamanism which was specially designed for this event by Dutch artist Marlies Andriaanse The film Chunhyang directed by the Korean filmmaker Kwon Taek Im in 2000 is a story of a Pansori singer and actor who follows the sound of a drummer to perform a singing scenario while he folds up a scarf This duo operetta is a traditional art form in Korea and it specially called my attention a part where the humorous messenger from the mountains swiftly comes to bring a message from the governor s son Mongryon to the heroine Chunhyang To take place in the performance I have commissioned a four meter banner in Korea colourfully showing a magnified drawing of a mountain landscape between two separated nations with the words of the song Cheer up of Bob Marley on top The lyrics are still valid Marley wrote the song to cheer up the people in critical times bringing hope for positive changes Also cheerful is Kaseko dance music The fragment I choose is performed by the saxophonist George Scheermaker This instrumental song was recorded in 1975 the year of the Independence of Suriname Kaseko is a Surinamese dance music that is a fusion of military march beat and European and Afro American rhythms Jessy Rahman The Hague April 2006 translation by Elina Banno Opening Performance Shin Yong Gu Korea up with child at NNSC open remaks Jams Clay USA installation material cannon bean sprouts Ali Bramwell New Zealand Kiss Protocal Kisser Maria Miles at DMZ JSA This work Kiss Protocol was produced during a Nine Dragon Heads event held in the Demilitarised Zone DMZ between the Republic of Korea ROK or South Korea and North Korea in April 2006 This was an historic event while there have been several large exhibition projects using the DMZ as a theme and focus such as Front DMZ none have been held inside the DMZ itself before The project was hosted by the Swiss Embassy and the Swiss and Swedish delegations to the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission NNSC Kiss protocol The work is a protocol device to regulate contact The correct procedure is Step A approach to device Step B place face in range of safety apperture Step C detect kissee Step D initiate kissing contact Step E disengage without further incident The work reflects the inherent paradox of the DMZ situation referring to simultaneous and contradictory desires

  • Nine Dragon Heads
    Listen to the frog Chorus Listen to the singing Fishermen when they pull the nets before it is too late To Jump is a basic need Have no fear Forget your narrow aesthetic political philosophical concept Enjoy Play Find new joy for Art joy for each other The jump is a symbol of overcoming fear and is an attempt to become open minded and tolerant To encounter the unknown and preserve the variety that is still around us Nine Dragon Heads is about to touch the New and the Old gently Nine Dragon Heads is about respect Respect for nature the base of everything respect for variety in culture art philosophy and religion Nine Dragon Heads is about relativation About relativity and stimulation Written Paul Donker Duyvis Open Air Symposium 1 st Period 15 th 18 th Jeju Island Udo Island Chagwido Island Songhaksan Cave Sagye Beach The international Nine Dragon Heads artists were excited about going to make work on Jeju Island This is South Korea s largest island a popular vacation spot Its central ancient volcano Halla is a striking physical feature Along the beaches small sea food restaurants offer numerous meal options The artists mission on Jeju Island was to make installations mostly on the beach and in the sea caves Park and Susanne Muller assembled tents in the sea caves as if seeking double protection from the elements Later they walked the open tents on their backs across the stony beach human legs with colourful giant carapaces picking their way through the rocks Daniela de Magddalena Daniele de Maddalena s squid faced woman danced in her cave amidst a row of transparent wrapped tea lights Her dried squid face mask referenced both local nature and culture the squid s ocean home and the abundant local restaurants where squid is a favoured dish Ali Bramwell built a tiny illuminated city in a derelict seaside concrete bunker Her little buildings rectangles and cylinders glowed in the evening light The crumbly walls sheltered them from the cold evening wind This appealing little construction was something of a beacon that as darkness descended increasingly stood out against the bleak grey beach Meanwhile Harold de Bree installed a long horizontal radio aerial It pulled down ambient signals out of the ether their strange mutterings and beeping a technological counterpoint to the beautiful natural beach Those signals surrounded us this piece reminded us or our own obliviousness to ambient sound John Lyall s small bronze frog from the street market in Insadong found a perch on blue painted scoria Someone s garden wall had been painted a surprising ultramarine And so the frog squatted a puzzling displacement of creature and space John s embroidered and sequined New Zealand native birds roosted in local shrubbery again enacting a curious dislocation of nature Yoko Kajio quietly walked into the cold sea white garments floating gracefully about her The chilly water ebbed gentle about her body her video camera witness to this This romantic action walking into the sea fully clothed at a place where we saw wet suited local women gathering seafood became on her video an elegant dreamy drama Video Link http channel lr fmiu net p 381 Open Air Symposium 2 nd Period 19 th 21 th BUSAN Haewundae Beach Mipo Fiserman Port A few days later the artists relocated to a friendly old hotel overlooking Hyundae beach Busan To visitors from small countries like New Zealand and Switzerland Busan is an enormous city Almost four million people occupy the hundreds of high rise apartment buildings that sprawl up meandering valleys from the sea Tucked away from the city centre in their sea facing high rise overlooking a small pebbly beach and a tiny fishing port the artists made work The plan was to create and exhibit work in small tents on the beach Unfortunately very heavy rain impeded this So a novel alternative was suggested every artist s hotel room would become a little installation space They could then invite guests I ncluding fellow artists to view their work and to enjoy a presentation about themselves as artists in the intimate bedroom spaces Bedroom as public gallery the artists welcomed this idea They spent a day constructing their exhibitions They rearranging their furniture or eliminated it altogether Some set up laptops for presentations of their work Others collected debris from the beach below the hotel to install in their private spaces The bedroom windows were engaged in some work with transparent text in the foregrounds the gray sea and the Busan highrises in the distance The wardrobe the doors walls mirrors every inch of each room was reassessed for its possibilities as a potential display space Yoo Joung Hye Bedroom as public gallery this raises questions of public and private space A hotel room is a temporary haven one s only refuge one s only space for privacy and intimacy in a huge foreign city These are spaces wherein private personal acts take place sleeping washing dressing Now they were to be open to the public gaze Those 20 kilograms of luggage allowed by most airlines were all that the room occupant owns in that space From that resource and whatever they could find in the vicinity the artists carried out their various projects And so each bed room was re assessed as something of a blank canvas or empty installation space Because they were guests there was no permanent imprint of their own personality imprint the space in the choice of colour scheme wall paper furnishings The uniform Love hotel aesthetic was already present with highly ornate furniture and the Korean custom of shoes placed at the doorway Park Harold De Bree Daniela de Magddalena Paul Donker Dyuvis Ali Bramwell Room to Room 23th April Bedrooms as Galleries in Busan South Korea Iliko Zautashvili and Magda Guruli arranged a long white satin banner over their bed Printed upon it in plain black text a litany of words of oppression Nazi
