News Release: NML Residency & Nusantara Archive Project, the 2nd year
October 1st, 2018TYPE: Press Release

No Man’s Land Residency & Nusantara Archive Project is an umbrella project that includes the NML Residency Exchange, the Meeting NML (artist’s talk), and the Nusantara Archive publications. These three programs are based on the No Man’s Land (NML) online journal and extended as the archive application through the modes of residency, translation, and collective production.

The artists’ proposals during the first part of the programme, from May 2017 ~ Apr 2018, were materialised in form of an exhibition – PETAMU Project, in collaboration with Open Contemporary Art Center, during which the process involved mapping, exploring the geo-body, and the cultural translation of Nusantara (Malay Archipelago). Meanwhile, the phrasing of “Outer Nanyang” in PETAMU Project can be regarded as a starting point of a de-colonization project that connects the narratives of the local and the regional histories. (See NML #34: Hermeneutics of Nusantara, NML #35: Nusantara: Signifier and its Limitation, and the curatorial essay of PETAMU Project.)

In the second term (Oct 2018 ~ Sept 2019) of NML Residency & Nusantara Archive Project, a group of artists and researchers will extend the research of previous participants. The invited artists-in-residence or researchers for this term include Nuraini Juliastuti (Jogja), Ismail Munhata (Jatiwangi), Jeffrey Lim (Malaysian), Ting Chaong-wen (Taiwan), Sima Wu Ting-Kuen (Taiwan), Chen Fei-Hao (Taiwan), Posak Jodian (Taiwan), for the collective fieldworks or writings. The Observation Team consists of Hoo Fan Chon, Ko-Nien Po (Alice), Cheng Hui-Wen (Fiona), Esther Lin and Wang Po-Wei. A new series of Meeting NML on the 2nd term of NML Residency & Nusantara Archive will be staged at the Et@t or Digital Art Foundation. This project [2nd term] is sponsored by NCAF and hosted by Digital Art Foundation / No Man’s Land; specially thanks to Yizai Seah and Rumah Attap Library & Collective.
