Project 304, in collaboration with Alliance Francaise International Art School, Bangkok and Plastique Kinetic Worms (PKW), Singapore, will organize a visual art travelling exhibitions, "ParallelWORLD". A process oriented project, ParallelWORLD attempts to exploit the possibilities and to explore the new paradigm provided by the juxtaposition of vitual and physical space. By creating scenario of having one exhibiton in two cities, inter-connected with what exist in the virtural real, therefore now the works are located ( in full or parts) in the website and in two or more different physical spaces and contexts. Each show consisted of three simontaneous art exhibitions in three different places. One of the space in Singapore; one in another city and linked by the third in cyberspace. This show will be a subsequent event between Plastique Kinetic Worms in Singapore apaces throughout the Asian and European region as followed: PARA/SITE- Hong Kong, GLASSBOX - Paris, CELESTE & ELIOT KUNSTASALON - Zurich, PROJECT 304 - Bangkok, CEMETI FOUNDATION - York Jargata.
During the period of this exhibition in Bangkok, ParallelWORLD will run simultaneously with an exhibitiion celebrated the 2nd year of existense of Plastique Kinetic Worms in Singapore. An installation in Bangkok will serve as a vehicle or conole for access to ParallelWORLD website. It will be the nerve center where one can download images from the the ParallelWORLD website and images from Bangkok.
In short, ParallelWORLD will function as virtual art space consisted of three parts; 1. Website as link; As the show moves from one event to another (each event locating at two physical spaces simultaneously), the virtual space will seve both as a link to what is happening in the two spaces as well as between one event and the next. This accumulated memories and knowledge will provide greater richness and diversity. 2. Webiste as Gallery: In this show, we plan to launch the website of PKW, which will serve as the third gallery sites for works of the artists, as well as a meeting point for various locations. 3. CD-ROM. With each event, we proposed to compile the works, through and critic to produce a CD-ROM. Such as the end of the series, the collection of CD-ROM will be a form of documentation, allowing for one to trace the development of ideas, the refinement of process, and the exploration of subject.
