Chronus Art Center (CAC) is pleased to co-organize the Harddiskmuseum Meeting and Artists Communitywith artist Solim芍n L車pez during his spring residency at CAC. Harddiskmuseum is an experimental art project founded by L車pez in 2016. Transforming the conventional definition of museum into a new social and cultural context, the project has incorporated 50-plus collaborative participants to date and traveling around various cities spanning Madrid, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, among others. This spring, Harddiskmuseum, in collaboration with <CAC_Lab>, will launch its first presentation in Asia and invite the local media artists to participate and introduce their artistic practices in the space of Harddiskmuseum.
Harddiskmuseum subverts the notion of museum as a solid architecture and experiments with a new possibility of sheltering art and culture in a more expansive and intangible space that grounds on interactive art systems and grows with collective imagination. By establishing a mobile hard disk and compiling creative productions, files, and other forms of traces in the framework, every participant is able to play with different roles in the project, starting from editors, graphic designers, illuminators, caretakers, museum directors, curators and of course artists. At the same time, the hard disk does not only enable information to be archived and organized into folders, but also reanimated as a complex universe that reveals multitude of information, increasing and connecting across peripheral devices.
L車pez explores the art structure in today＊s technological era by joining the discourse of different social facades closely related to art, and by combining new exhibition models that would ignite richer ideas and reflections.
