Open Interventions for an Open Season
THIS IS TONGUE IN CHEEK / WORK IN PROGRESS
OPEN OPEN SEASON
Artists put in a 8 month project proposal to take over open season and occupy 45 Armenian Street and run its programming as a group of artists from SIngapore.
Question: why are we all working for The Substation for free? ITS A TRAP!!!! TRAP!!!!!!
Artists put in a 8 month project proposal to take over open season and occupy 45 Armenian Street but do not do anything inside it so it is empty. Yah I know its very high conceptual. Sorry the uncle and auntie may not get it, and neither do we. But unusual times call for unusual actions.
Artists write down one word each for themes on slips of paper. All papers are put into a hat. Artists draw one slip of paper each. They are forced to produce a proposal on that topic and submit it to Open Season. No excuses. Oh what is that you say? Did you draw "Nostalgia" as a keyword again for the 17th time in a row? I'm sorry, you'll still have to make a work about "Nostalgia".
We embark on a 4 year performative piece in which we do not go to 45 Armenian Street and insulate ourselves from the news about it. On the 5th year, we finally return to see what it is like.
