|FREE MANIFESTA: PROJECTS: IDP PAPER PLANE|
|IDP PAPER PLANE|
IIDP proposes to distribute a page containing the shape of a paper plane that one can easily tear away, fold following the lines and than send or keep. The paper plane is part of IDP a project research on the theme of utopy and ideal place.
The ideal place is different for each one of us. It can exist for someone and be utopic for some others.
Therefore the plane is a symbol of something flying everywhere and nowhere and, at the same time it talks about mobility and openess.
One can decide be part of IDP project network by sending back ones ideal place scenarios, ideas, projects or researchs using the postal or e-mail address printed on the paper plane sheet.
Or one can send the paper plane wherever he likes, for instance through the air or by normal mail.The paper plane will be printed in 500 copies on A4 format and distributed for free in all the locations of the Free Manifesta during the month of August 2002.
HOW TO LOCATE
The paper plane will be printed in 500 copies on A4 format and distributed for free in all the locations of the Free Manifesta during the month of August 2002.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
IDP project research.
IDP looks at art as an ideal place that offers itself as a possible neutral meeting point between different social and cultural realities. As a cooperative international network of people from different fields, IDP proposes various public actions in which people are invited, more or less consciously, to experience their contexts from different points of view. IDP look at art as a space of possibility and openess, which can introduce a reflection by activating a process. It functions thanks to concepts of diffusion and hospitality. It can be active where it would be invited by those people which are part of the network.
Utopy and Ideal Place.
As the history has demonstrated, the utopia has no possibility to become concrete and universal, therefore the concept of ideal place cannot be unique. But, how can we think about utopia today? Of course it has no more the image of an isolated happy island, rather we can see it from another point of view. Thus in the contemporary reality it becomes not a single island with one bridge (Thomas Moores Utopia) but a whole of bridges/people altogether connected one to the other. This map of "bridges"is not related to fixed geographical or territorial contexts but is itself a space outside from boundaries, inbetween from cultures and disciplines, a transversal space.
