call for submissions

Ginza and Koiwa, Tokyo
28th July-18th August 2006

curated by Emma Lewis
In association with Trampoline and Ginza Art Laboratory

Dislocate is an exhibition examining the tensions between the local and the global - the elements and identity of one local space which are simultaneously intersected by countless global links and influences.

Video City
We are making a final call for video based works. These works will be shown on a showreel and others on single monitors. Moving image work submitted will engage with ideas of geographical and cultural dislocation.
Please submit video work on DVD or Mini DV.

Cardboard City
In our attempt to disturb the boundaries between inside and outside, real and virtual space we are going to make a giant city - out of cardboard - in the gallery.

With the idea of overlaying spaces - reconstructing the city - a new urban landscape will be created in the gallery space - containing the work of artists and the contributions of visitors to the exhibition. Contributors to the exhibition are therefore asked to consider potential architecture which may house their work. These will be replicated in the gallery space in cardboard - but artists are encouraged to supply materials to decorate these cardboard structures. We are asking artists to design and ideally make elements of this cardboard city, which may also house small 2D and 3D works. You are invited to research the urbanscape of Tokyo and particularly the areas of Ginza and Koiwa and design your own structure for the city - if you wish to make this yourself please ensure that it flatpacks - shoe box size is optimum. Over the exhibition we expect the city to grow and expand in new ways. If you are interested to contribute to this city please contact the curator

Please note that we will not be able to transport the artists to Tokyo but we will be able to transport the work.

Deadline to submit proposals is May 31st
