Error Renewal: Art Revitalizes Communities
Participating Errorists; Karl Hallberg (Sweden) Mikko Laajola (Finland), Sara Milazzo (Finland), Kilian Ochs (Germany) Rauno Õispuu (Estonia), Mika Palonen (Finland) ;Justin Tyler Tate (Canada//USA/Estonia) and Ernest Truely (USA/Estonia) will travel to Turkey to create an art installations in a disused house 1 March to 3 April 2013.
Error will invent new uses for places on both a structural and social level. The result may be a garden, playground, spa or other function that engages the community, where aspects of daily life like eating, rest or play are the critical media of art. The project speaks about home, environment, economy and revitalization in a contemporary art context; a site specific art installation to uplift attitudes about spaces that have become disused through years of turmoil.
Error involves local people in the entire process. Project manager; Seckin Aydin, an artist and art educator in Diyarbakir, organizes the promotion of Error activities and serves as liaison between governmental, commercial or art institutions and the artists. Error engages people through artist talks and lectures offered at the site of the installation and in local schools. Workshops and demonstrations at the location are open to the public and published online. The project will be completed with help from local students and community members.
Error employs an improvisational approach to construction; the location and available materials inform the design, we find elegant solutions for creating installation art. Error uses mostly recycled and repurposed materials. Error’s intention is to create an installation which is a sustainable social focal point in Diyarbakir and to develop ongoing professional relationships with our supporters and partners in southeast Turkey.
A presentation of the completed project will occur Saturday 23 March 2013 at the Ecological House in Sümerpark Diyarbakir.
