In the modern world, we are surrounded by what we have created. With the development of technologies, the human ability to intervene in the nature has got to reach the level where the environment became unpredictable. We could build our environment, relying on our images of the future. But there is a feedback cycle where no one knows its beginning. Beyond certain point, it could be hard to determine whether something is significant or only a gone image of the future or a candidate of monuments of failure. An intervention in the environment is to bring unpredictability of the human activities there. In the modern world, we are involved in ourselves. It means that we have lost outside.
As a result, the development has reverted its direction to inside. Now we are not only subjects but also objects of the development. We could be statistically counted, calculated, normalized, standardized and so on. The paradox is that diversity has become a potential obstacle for the modern technology although it is an essential element of our life.
In days gone by, to make something repeatable was the goal of technology as well as human society. In days to come, we will have to find the way to preserve diversity.
Contemporary arts are involved in the similar situation. On the one hand, the art is technology as an accumulation of technique to give things repeatability. On the other hand, its history is an accumulation of diversity of individual imagination. If the art will side only the public development or social significance, it will lose diversity. If it will side only personal situation, it will lose its relation to society.
The art is ambiguous because it intermediate public and person. I believe that such an ambiguity have a potential to change a limitation into a chance. By creating, inventing or defining something in a different way, and by touching individual imagination, the art can move,shift or shake the boundary between public and person. And that is my standpoint as an artist.
In days gone by, to make something repeatable was the completion of art. In days to come, to make something diverse will be the repetition of art.

Frances Cordero de Bolanos
Residence artist from 1st September to 30th September 2016. 2016年9月1日至9月30日期间进驻的艺术家
Frances Cordero de Bolanos is interested in exploring new avenues in mix media for expressing his feelings and thoughts. The use of different media allows for versatility, and it feeds to his urge for trying different things. For instance, rust is a medium that he like to use in his works because it is corrosive, and it degenerates. He find that it allows him to draw abstract portraits of disappearance, loss and death.
Various indigenous groups including our Mayan culture use smoke in rituals, and it is considered sacred. Other religions such as the Catholic Church burn incense during services as a symbolic gesture of prayer and offering; the burning, the smoke along with its smell is akin the presence of God. However, smoke has negative connotations. He see smoke as evidence of destruction, as a result of war assaults. He find it intriguing to see how the smoke begins as a thick mass and then it dissipates as it ascends to the open sky as if it is the material manifestation of the soul’s journey.

"Jan Gaudissabois is a Belgian, who is often on the move, geographically, but also creatively. With a solid passion for painting, and a nod to the avant-garde, he is always drawn into abstraction, as it breathes a certain flair, of honesty, endlessness, reaching beyond the usual confinements. The paint becomes the subject itself, nude, raw, with a certain dramatic edge, an edge of confusion, chaos, mass, never pretends to be anything else but that. "
"Jan Gaudissabois 是 比利时人，经常旅行，极富创造性。怀着对绘画坚实而热烈的激情，以及对先锋派的认同，经常沉浸在抽象艺术的他得以展现自己的天分，并且为了超越艺术的 边 界而毫无保留、无穷无尽地去探索。其抽象的画面就是主题本身，赤裸、原始、戏剧化且带有迷思的边缘，混乱、团块，无需伪装成其他，所见即所得。"
