两位瑞士艺术家将从2009年12月到2010年4月在中国工作,与此同时两名中国艺术家将在瑞士的工作室(科学实验室)工作。他们在居住期间的成果将于2010年10月至12月间在瑞士“Culturescapes”艺术节上以适当的方式呈现给公众。

艺术家及其项目

“艺术家在科学实验室”的评委会于2009年8月从众多的申请中选拔而出,由以下四位中国和瑞士艺术家组成:

Alexandre JOLY(日内瓦)

Artists-in-Labs: The China/Swiss Residence Exchange
ZHdK

Many artists are currently exploring scientific, technologic and cultural developments of the 21st century and are engaged in critical discussions about ethics. The «Artists-in-Labs» programme aims at producing and sharing common ideas, at expanding of dialogue and opening eyes for contributions to the major challenges of our time by artists and scientists. The programme gives artists from all disciplines a chance to work in a scientific laboratory during a given time. The programme directors are seeking opportunities for cooperation with leading laboratories and intending to stimulate the creativity of the artists as good as possible. Key issues are the search of interpretations of nature, matter and human needs, but also to reflect on the interest in understanding, discovering and creating in order to develop sustainable new ideas.

The programme «Artists-in-Labs» has been established in 2004. For the first time since its inception, a non-Western country has been added to the programme for the new period of 2009/2010. Selected artists from China and Switzerland will thus be offered a five months stay in Swiss and Chinese scientific institutions respectively. The focus will be on research fields such as environment, water, permafrost and biology.

Dates

From December 2009 to April 2010 two Swiss artists will work in scientific labs in China, while two Chinese artists will stay in two labs in Switzerland. The results of their residencies are planned to be shown during the festival Culturescapes between October and December 2010 in Switzerland.


The artists and their projects
After the application deadline and evaluation period in August 2009 the Artists-in-Labs jury decided to grant residencies to the following four artists from Switzerland and China:

Alexandre JOLY, artist, Geneva -> Chengdu Institute of Biology (CIB), Chengdu (Sichuan Province)
Aline VEILLAT, artist, Basel -> Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment (IMHE), Chengdu (Sichuan Province)
Aniu, photographer, Shenzhen -> Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (EAWAG), Dübendorf (Canton of Zurich)
LIAO Wenfeng, photographer, Shanghai -> Swiss Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL), Birmensdorf (Canton of Zurich)
