"Money is not everything" to "Think
Suvivart is a framework that focuses on economy and community
in order to "survive" (in Latin, SUR + vivre
: surpass and live) in severe society.
Survivart will directly address the keyword "money",
which has been avoided to discuss openly and honestly in
Japanese art scene. We especially support young artists'
activity through managing and promoting exhibitions or
projects, and focusing on community networks.
We, survaivart, back to the original concept that the word "art" indicates
--- education, culture, and craft, and search a new and unprecedented way of
expression which is released from the narrow range of " art" that current
Japanese society has. We will try to open and combine various genres, testes,
and crafts, and create new frameworks through connecting several networks.
We correct "survival" way of various people based on continuous research
of their way of overcoming obstacles that irregularly and unexpectedly occurs
in life (a daily life including artistic activity and economic activity). Our
research is very open and contemporary that allows everyone to share the same
information. We select the most appropriate media, such as electricity, paperwork,
or visual, depending on each content, and introduce in a handy and portable way
to fit for "survival". We will construct and introduce researches as
an objective outcome of each frameworks and projects, and as a real survival
When an artist tries continuous artist activity, economic condition will take
an important and role and influence on his/her activity. However, Survivart suggests
not to consider such economic severe condition pessimistically, but to positively
accept part-time work and earn for their lives and activities. In such idea,
it may be also acceptable not to rely on existing markets, but to evaluate freely
based on oneีs value and taste. Artistic activity and economic activity are the
same status in terms of essential in everyday life. In other words, to live and
survive in a society as a single individual meets the needs of the times of free
expression, and it is also universal. It is totally acceptable to consider working
as one of the way and source of artistic creation, study, and presentation.
We, survivart, do not have money as well. Surivart project is also for our survival
of our own life.
