5Art Space x Xiao Yin Farm
Residency
 
 
近几年,驻地计划在艺术家及艺术委托间越来越流行。艺术家得以离开祖国,接受文化冲击,得到更多新鲜体验与创作灵感,并回馈于艺术创作。不同地区的艺术家聚集一起,分享他们的经历及丰富彼此的创作力驻地艺术计划也可看成是一种实验方式,不仅使艺术实践者获得新鲜经历,而且为画廊与艺术机构提供一种新颖的模式,供其探索。另外,当地的艺术家亦受益于异国艺术家带来的新灵感。
 

In recent years, residency programs have become increasingly popular among artists and art institutions.Owing to the globalization, artists have chances to step out of their own countries, reacting with the culture shock from fresh experiences and produce more striking and refreshing works. Artists from different areas and fields gather together, share their experiences and harvest the fruits of their creativity.

 
 
      
 
 
与北京及上海相比,广州的艺术经济会较为保守。虽是如此,但位于珠江边的广州,享受产品经济发达的优越性,这为艺术的创作提供丰富的素材。另外,广州以丰富的休闲娱乐活动出名,也许着来自当地相对宽容的政治氛围。一言蔽之,广州是一个居住与创作艺术的好地方。
 

Comparing with Beijing and Shanghai, the art ecosystem in Guangzhou might be less active. However, located in Pearl River Delta, Guangzhou enjoys the superiority of having a rich manufacture economy which offers a great variety of materials to produce art works. Additionally, Guangzhou is famous for its relaxing daily life, partly because of the local tolerant political atmosphere. In a word, Guangzhou is a perfect place for living and creating art.

 
 
  
海鸥岛位于广州的南部,珠江江口处。岛上有四个村庄,村民仍保持耕种捕鱼的谋生传统,过着一种简单又朴实的生活。小茵渔场坐落于村落间,带有无花果农场与18个常驻工作室,交给有经验的团队运营,由小茵旅馆与5Art建立,本次驻留计划意在为来自世界各地的艺术家打造一个家园。艺术家在岛上生活,可从当地居民的生活方式中吸取灵感,并领略岛上的自然风光。由于艺术与生活密切相关,我们希望艺术家得到更多观念并能付诸实践。
 
Gull island is located in the southeast Guangzhou and at the river mouth of Pearl River. There are four villages on the island and residents there still remain the farming, fishing, hunting traditions and live a simple and humble life.XiaoyinFishing Farm sits in between the villages , equipped with fig farm and 18 resident studios and is run by  an experienced team. Established by XiaoyinFishing Lodge and 5Art Space,  this resident program aims to create a home for artists from all over the world. Artists can dwell among the locals, draw their inspiration from the living ways or take advantages of the natural scenes on the island. As art is closely intersected with life here , we hope more artistic ideas could be put into practice.
