PROTOZINE: A Few in Many Places 2021 

View online & download PDF

Protocinema presents A Few In Many Places, a multi-city group exhibition which addresses on-going collapses and cycles of violence, through various forms of collectivity. Taking place in Seoul, Bangkok, Istanbul, New York, Santurce, and Guatemala City, all of these interventions use sustainable exhibition-making models of reducing exploitation (of natural resources, labor and knowledge) and consumption (no shipping or flying). This year, collaborators present works on continuing inequalities happening in both physical and digital realms. Developed by Protocinema in 2020, A Few In Many Places maintains a foot in physical real-life, small and safe get-togethers in each community while utilizing far-reaching digital support structures, to be both hyper-local and globally interconnected. Each chapter is site-responsive while speaking across the regions and produced in a format that allows for forms of engagement under various conditions of lockdowns or other contingent situations. 

In Santurce, Seoul, and Guatemala City, the artists will engage with the different communities and silenced histories through manifold ways. In Santurce, Escuela de Oficios, the collective platform of Jorge González’s practice, will present a series of interventions and in-person programs in collaboration with Organización del Pueblo Indígena Can-jíbaro de Borikén (CAN). Their project, Bateyes del Chibal, focuses on engaging with communal belonging within the context of ceremonial plazas, in Borikén (Puerto Rico), ancestrally called bateys by indigenous and Afro-descendent people in the Caribbean. In Seoul, Welcome to Ogasawara navigates trans-boundary waters of both the literal sea and the “sea” of current internet conditions which are now even more fragmented by boundaries of nationality, ethnicity, or citizenship. The collective will present a multi-platform online-and-offline project in the Champs-Elysee Shopping Plaza in the Euljiro district. In Guatemala City, the project will take place in Pagoda Imaginaria, developed by artist and organizer Esvin Alarcon Lam, who has invited artists Antonio Pichillá and Camilla Juárez to develop a collective exhibition: Pichillá presents an installation following his tradition as a spiritual healer from the Mayan culture. Juárez’s installation, video, and photographs document the performance titled Light Caravan, performed on 5 March 2021, as an act of women lighting other women on the streets of Guatemala City; and Lam, who reflects on the global botanical histories and how they are interlaced with the colonial expeditions financed by the Agricultural Department of the USA, presents a sound installation accompanied by raw bamboo grafted with natural flowers.

A Few In Many Places in Bangkok, Istanbul, and New York will focus on the image in its myriad forms as a site of collective investigation and re-learning as well as a tool to unhinge the cycles of violence. In Bangkok, Komtouch Dew Napattaloong works with broken cameras for photographs and video-audio installation along with sound work by Thanart Rasanon. The project continues the artist’s long-term investigation into the politics of movement and belonging, through an engagement with urban refugees and asylum-seekers, who in Thailand have no specific domestic legal framework for protection. In Istanbul, the exhibition takes vision, body, and movement as subject-matters, and as sensory metaphors of cycles, re-cycles, and breaks those cycles. Zeynep Kayan, with her video works using her body, replays endless repetitions of small physical movements, recalling somatic knowledge, which our bodies carry and transmit for generations. ARK, an on-going collaborative work by Kathryn Hamilton and Deniz Tortum explores the ways that contemporary technologies have provided the framework for understanding the relationship between the body and the world. For the New York chapter of the exhibition, Lila Nazemian in collaboration with Vartan Avakian, Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh, and Kristine Khouri members of the Arab Image Foundation (AIF) will explore histories of (forced) migration, memory and material culture through their intervention situated in a house on Colonels Row, Governors Island. Through photography, research texts, and film, artists as well as participants from the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies’ (NYU) Practitioner-in-Residence workshop (entitled: Unravelling Collections and Practices: Rights Materialities and Photographic Agency), will share ideas of and proposals to consider repatriation, rightful ownership, custodianship and control over culture and data.  

A Few In Many Places is accompanied by a new edition of ProtoZine including the texts by the curatorial group Collective Rewilding (Sara Garzón, Ameli Klein, and Sabina Oroshi), philosopher Erik Bordeleau and a collaborative essay connecting two city interventions (Santurce and Istanbul) and five collaborators Kathryn Hamilton / Deniz Tortum, Zeynep Kayan, Jorge González, Mari Spirito

Unas Cuantas En Various Lugares 
A Few In Many Places  
08 de mayo - 08 de agosto de 2021

Seoul, Bangkok, Istanbul, New York, Santurce, Guatemala City

Co-curated by Mari Spirito and Abhijan Toto, A Few In Many Places includes collaborators: 

Unas Cuantas en Varios Lugares, curada de forma conjunta por Mari Spirito y Abhijan Toto, incluye colaboradores:Gahee Park, Gim Ikhyun, Miji Lee, Welcome to Ogasawara (Hyun Woomin, Min Guhong Manufacturing, Park Daham, Yuri An, Yun Choi), Komtouch Dew Napattaloong, Thanart Rasanon, Alper Turan, Zeynep Kayan, Kathryn Hamilton, Deniz Tortum, Lila Nazemian, Vartan Avakian, Kristine Khouri, Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh, Embajada, Jorge González Santos, Esvin Alarcón Lam, Antonio Pichillá, Camilla Juárez.  

Protocinema presenta Unas Cuantas en Varios Lugares, una exposición grupal a presentarse en múltiples ciudades que aborda colapsos en proceso y ciclos de violencia a través de varias formas de colectividad. En todas las intervenciones, las cuales se darán en Seúl, Bangkok, Estambul, Nueva York, varios sitios de Puerto Rico y Ciudad de Guatemala, se emplean modelos sustentables para la celebración de exposiciones, con los cuales se busca reducir la explotación (de recursos naturales, labor y conocimiento) y el consumo (no se recurre a transporte marítimo o aéreo). Este año, los colaboradores presentan obras que tratan sobre inequidades que continúan existiendo tanto en ambientes físicos como digitales. Unas Cuantas en Varios Lugares, un trabajo desarrollado por Protocinema en el 2020, recurre a reuniones pequeñas y seguras dadas en ambientes físicos de cada comunidad, pero a la vez utiliza estructuras digitales de soporte de amplio alcance. El resultado es un evento que por un lado es híper local, pero al mismo tiempo genera conexiones a nivel global. 

En Santurce, Seúl y Ciudad de Guatemala, los artistas desarrollarán diversas interacciones con las diferentes comunidades y narrativas históricas que han sido silenciadas. En Santurce, Escuela de Oficios, la plataforma colectiva de la práctica de Jorge González, presentará una serie de intervenciones y programas presenciales en colaboración con la Organización del Pueblo Indígena Can-jíbaro de Borikén (CAN). Su proyecto conjunto, Bateyes del Chibal, se enfoca en abordar el sentido de pertenencia comunal dentro del contexto de las plazas ceremoniales en Borikén (Puerto Rico), antiguamente llamadas bateyes por los pueblos indígenas y afrodescendientes del Caribe. En Seúl, Welcome to Ogasawara navega entre las aguas del mar concreto, en su sentido literal, y el “mar” creado por las condiciones actuales del internet, que hoy en día están aún más fragmentadas por fronteras marcadas por la nacionalidad, la etnicidad y la ciudadanía. El colectivo presentará un proyecto en múltiples plataformas, el cual combinará elementos análogos con elementos en línea, en el centro comercial Champs-Elysee Shopping Plaza, localizado en el distrito Euljiro. En Ciudad de Guatemala, el proyecto se dará en Pagoda Imaginaria. Este será desarrollado por el artista y organizador Esvin Alarcón Lam, quien ha invitado a los artistas Antonio Pichillá y Camilla Juárez para crear una exhibición colectiva. Pichillá presenta una instalación siguiendo su tradición como curandero espiritual de la cultura maya. La instalación, vídeo y fotografías de Juárez documentan el performance titulado Light Caravan, llevado a cabo el cinco de marzo de 2021 como un acto en el cual mujeres iluminaban a otras mujeres en las calles de Ciudad de Guatemala. Lam, quien reflexiona sobre las historias globales relacionadas a la botánica y cómo estas se entrelazan con las expediciones coloniales financiadas por el Departamento de Agricultura de los EE. UU., presenta una instalación sonora acompañada de bambú crudo injertado con flores naturales.

Algunes en Muchos Lugares, a presentarse en Bangkok, Estambul, y Nueva York, se enfocará en la imágen en sus múltiples formas como lugar de investigación colectiva y reaprendizaje, además de como herramienta para desarticular ciclos de violencia. En Bangkok, Komtouch Dew Napattaloong trabaja con cámaras rotas para producir fotografías, y crea además instalaciones de audio y vídeo, acompañadas de audio producido por Thanart Rasanon. Este proyecto es una continuación de la investigación a largo plazo del artista sobre las políticas de movimiento y la pertenencia a través de interacciones con refugiados urbanos y personas que solicitan asilo, quienes en Tailandia no cuentan con un marco legal doméstico que les brinde protección. En Estambul, la exhibición adopta como materia temática la visión, el cuerpo y el movimiento, usándolos como metáforas sensoriales de ciclos, repeticiones de estos ciclos, y quebrantamientos de los mismos. Zeynep Kayan, mediante trabajos de vídeo en los cuales usa su cuerpo, presenta repeticiones infinitas de pequeños movimientos físicos, lo cual evoca el conocimiento somático que nuestros cuerpos cargan y transmiten a través de las generaciones. ARK, un trabajo colaborativo en curso de Kathryn Hamilton y Deniz Tortum, explora cómo las tecnologías contemporáneas han establecido los parámetros para entender la relación entre el cuerpo y el mundo. En la sesión que tendrá lugar en Nueva York, Lila Nazemian, en colaboración con Vartan Avakian, Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh y Kristine Khouri, miembros de la Fundación Árabe para la Imagen (AIF por sus siglas en inglés), explorarán narrativas históricas de migraciones (forzosas), memoria y cultura material por medio de su intervención situada en una casa en Colonels Row, Governors Island. Usando fotografía, textos investigativos y película, artistas y participantes del taller de practicantes en residencia titulado Unravelling Collections and Practices: Rights Materialities and Photographic Agency, del Centro Hagop Kevorkian Para los Estudios del Oriente Próximo (NYU), compartirán ideas sobre la repatriación, la propiedad legítima, la protección de recursos y el control sobre la cultura y los datos. Presentarán además propuestas sobre cómo estos temas deben atenderse.   Algunes en Muchos Lugares estará acompañado por una nueva edición de ProtoZine, la cual incluye textos creados por comisión que presentan una variedad de perspectivas diferentes. Estos fueron escritos por: Laura Raicovich, curadora y autora; Erik Bordeleau, filósofo; Collective Rewilding, así como textos desarrollados por parejas de curadores: Mari Spirito y Jorge Gonzales Santos; Gim Ikhyun & Miji Lee, y Esvin Alarcón Lam; Lila Nazemian y Abhijan Toto. Los textos de ProtoZine y los programas públicos en curso se presentarán a lo largo de la exhibición.

지도 위 수많은 축
A Few In Many Places 
2021년 5월 8일 - 8월 8일 

Seoul, Bangkok, Istanbul, New York, Santurce, Guatemala City

«지도 위 수많은 축»은 큐레이터 마리 스피리토아비잔 토토가 공동 기획하였으며 이외 여러 협업자들과 함께 합니다. 

우리는 바다에서 왔다(김익현 & 현우민, 민구홍 매뉴팩처링, 박가희, 박다함, 안유리, 이미지, 최윤), 콤투크 디우 나팟타룽, 따낫 라싸농, 아르퍼 투란, 제이넵 카얀, 캐서린 해밀턴, 데니즈 토텀, 라일라 나제미안, 발탄 아바키안, 크리스틴 코쿠리, 야스민 아이드사비, 엠바야다, 공동체 CAN, 조지 곤잘레스 산토스, 에스빈 알라콘 람, 안토니오 피칠라, 카멜리아 후아레즈

프로토시네마는 다양한 공동체적 형식을 통해 현재 우리가 경험하는 붕괴, 연속되는 폭력에 주목하는 멀티 도시 단체전 «지도 위 수많은 축»을 소개합니다. 전시는 서울, 방콕, 이스탄불, 뉴욕, 산투스, 과테말라시티에서 이루어지는 모든 협업에 천연 자원, 노동, 지식의 착취와 선박 및 항공 운송 등의 소비를 지양하는 지속가능한 전시 만들기의 모델을 적용합니다. 올해의 협업자들은 물리적인 환경과 디지털 환경을 막론하고 연쇄적으로 발생하는 불균형에 관한 작업을 전개합니다. 2020년부터 프로토시네마에 의해 발전되어온 전시 «지도 위 수많은 축»은 초지역적이며 동시에 세계적인 연결을 위해 광범위한 디지털 연결망을 보조적으로 사용하는 한편, 물리적인 현실에 발을 디디고 각 지역에서 소규모의 안전한 만남을 지속합니다. 각 도시의 챕터는 특정 장소에 반응하면서도 전반적인 지역에 대해 이야기하며 봉쇄 및 기타 비상 상황 등 여러 조건 속에서도 참여적인 방식을 만들어냅니다. 

산투스, 서울, 과테말라시티의 작가들은 확장된 방식으로 각기 다른 공동체와 침묵당한 역사에 대해 다룹니다. 산투스에서 조지 곤잘레스의 공동체 플랫폼인 Escuela de Oficios는 공동체 CAN(Organización del Pueblo Indígena Can-jíbaro de Borikén)과 함께 일련의 협업과 대면 프로그램들을 소개할 예정입니다. 그들의 프로젝트 ‹Bateyes del Chibal›는 보리켄(푸에르토 리코의 옛 이름)에 위치한 의식의 광장(ceremonial plaza)이 지닌 역사적 맥락에서 카브리해 원주민이자  아프리카계 후손인 그들의 선조들에 의해 ‘Bateyes’라고 불리던 공동의 소속감에 주목한다. 서울의 ⭊우리는 바다에서 왔다⥵는 국적, 인종, 시민권 등에 의해 그 어느때보다 더 분절된 지도 위 공해(公海)와 인터넷 환경을 은유하는 공해를 항해합니다. 이 항해를 위해 구성된 일시적 공동체는 을지로에 위치한 샹제리제 지하상가를 중심으로 온라인과 오프라인을 오가는 멀티플랫폼 프로젝트를 선보입니다. 과테말라시티의 프로젝트는 파고다 이메지나리아에서 펼쳐질 예정이며 이곳을 설립한 작가이자 운영자 에스빈 알라콘 람이 공동의 전시에 함께할 작가 안토니오 피칠라카멜리아 후아레즈를 초청하여 시작됩니다. 피칠라는 마야 문명의 정신적 치료사로서의 전통을 따르는 설치 작업을 선보입니다. 후아레즈의 설치, 영상, 사진 작업은 지난 2021년 3월 5일, 길거리에서 한 여성이 다른 여성에게 빛을 비추는 행위로 이루어졌던 ‹Light Caravan›이라는 퍼포먼스에 대한 기록을 담고 있습니다. 세계 식물의 역사와 이것이 미국 농업부가 자금을 지원하는 ‘식민지 탐험’과 어떻게 얽혀 있는지 되짚어 보는 작업을 하는 람은 자연의 꽃이 접목된 생 대나무가 어우러진 사운드 설치를 선보입니다.

방콕, 이스탄불, 뉴욕의 «지도 위 수많은 축»은 공동의 연구와 다시-배움(re-learning)을 위한 장소일 뿐만 아니라 폭력의 순환을 흩트리는 도구로서 무수한 형태의 이미지에 주목하고자 한다. 방콕에서 콤투크 디우 나팟타룽따낫 라싸농의 사운드 작업과 함께 사진, 영상, 오디오 설치를 위해 고장난 카메라로 작업합니다. 이 프로젝트는 태국에서 특정한 법의 보호를 받지 못하는 도시 난민 및 망명 신청자들과의 관계맺음을 통해 이동 및 소속의 정치에 대해 연구하는 작가의 장기적인 실천의 일환으로 지속됩니다. 이스탄불에서 이루어지는 전시는 시각, 신체, 움직임을 주제이자 순환, 재순환, 그리고 순환을 다시 깨뜨리기 위한 감각적 은유로 이용합니다. 제이넵 카얀은 작가의 신체를 이용한 영상 작업을 통해 작은 몸짓을 끝없이 반복하며 우리 몸이 수 세대에 걸쳐 전달하고 운송하는 신체적 지식을 회상합니다. 캐서린 해밀턴데니즈 토텀이 함께하는 콜렉티브 ARK는 우리 몸과 세계 사이의 관계를 이해하기 위한 틀로서 현대 기술이 제공한 여러 방식들에 대해 탐구합니다. 전시를 구성하는 또 다른 챕터인 뉴욕에서는 라일라 나제미안과 아랍이미지재단(AIF)의 구성원 발탄 아바키안, 야스민 아이드사비, 크리스틴 코쿠리와 협업하여 거버너스 섬에 위치한 콜로넬스 하우스에서 (강제)이주, 기억, 물질 문화의 역사에 대해 이야기 할 예정입니다. 이들은 또 사진, 연구 대상인 텍스트, 영상 뿐만 아니라 뉴욕대학교 내에 위치한 중동 연구센터(Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, NYU)의 관내 연구자 워크숍 ‹소장품과 실천 풀어보기: 권리의 중대성과 사진 대행사› 참여자들과 함께 송환, 정당한 소유권, 관리인의 임무, 문화 및 데이터의 통제 등에 대한 생각과 제안을 공유하는 시간을 가질 예정입니다. «지도 위 수많은 축»은 큐레이터이자 작가인 로라 라이코비치, 철학자 에릭 보르디라우, 콜렉티브 리와일딩의 다채로운 관점이 담긴 커미션 텍스트와 여섯 도시에서 짝을 이룬 큐레이터들, 마리 스피리토조지 곤잘레스 산토스, 김익현 & 이미지에스빈 알라콘 람, 라일라 나제미안아비잔 토토가 생산한 텍스트가 담긴 프로토 진(ProtoZine)의 새로운 에디션을 함께 선보입니다. 프로토 진의 텍스트와 연계 프로그램은 전시기간 동안 차례대로 공개됩니다.
