Studio

Introduction

Lijiang Studio’s residency at Lashihai is in the town of Hainan, on the south end of Lashi lake. The residency is immediately adjacent to a local family’s house, to whom we are very closely connected. Because of this particular situation we are interested in work that can be relevant both here and elsewhere.

Recently

Mara Goldman and Maxfield Gassman created the Book of Static, tuning in to the coughs and licks of chants and rants and chatter and babble, the fade-ins and -outs of lilting songs and brash drums, the jetplane hum that we later understood was jamming...

Annie Rollins made experiments with shadow puppets for puppet shows to be performed in ghost towns.

Yung Chang worked on the script for his next film Eggplant, and treated residents and neighbors to a screening of his recent film, The Gatekeeper.

Rokko Juhasz and Nancy Liu organized Only Time Casts Shadows, a performance encounter culminating in the burial of a time capsule holding traces of the invited artist's performances.

Madeline Finn has been painting the people, objects, landforms, and conversations she has encountered at the studio.

And on August 13th, 2016 we once again danced the Qilin dance at the studio. local painter Mu Wenzhang is working a pair of huge Qilin themed murals at the entrance to the studio.

工作室

简介

丽江工作室位于丽江拉市海海南,与旁边一户当地人家有着紧密的合作关系。我们对能同时在当地和外地引起共鸣的作品感兴趣。

近期消息

Mara Goldman和Maxfield Gassman在作品《静电之书》中,调试自己组装的天线,接收着咳嗽声、丝丝念诵、絮语、唠叨和牢骚,断断续续的歌声、击鼓声、喷气式飞机的轰鸣声……随后我们才明白,他们是在玩信号干扰。

Annie Rollins探索皮影戏的可能,准备日后在“鬼城”里上演。

张侨勇为他的下一部电影《茄子》撰写剧本,并为进驻艺术家和村民们播放了他近期的电影《生命守门人》。

Rokko Juhasz和刘南茜组织了“只有时间留下影子”行为艺术遭遇群展。最终,参展艺术家行为的蛛丝马迹被封入“时间囊”,埋藏在地下。

人、物、地貌和对话,Madeline Finn把自己在工作室的遭遇画进了画里。

2016年8月13日,工作室又一次上演“麒麟舞”。当地画师木文章正在工作室入口的墙壁上绘制两幅麒麟主题的壁画。

Facilities

The Lashihai residency currently has 4 small double private bedrooms, and a dormitory with 4 beds. The residency has a shared kitchen and eating area, two showers, two sinks, and a special dry composting toilet. As it occupies a traditional family dwelling, living and working space has limited privacy. Meals are provided, as is wireless internet. 

The studio spaces are shared as part of this traditional three-building dwelling. There are a lot of odds and ends but currently not much special equipment. We do have bicycles. If you have specific questions about working, please get in touch.

Program Fees

Artists pay for their own airfare, internal transportation in China, appropriate insurance, production or project expenses. Lijiang Studio provides food, accommodation, and a certain amount of facilitation.
