Soeng Joeng Toi at SYNNIKA

 

SoengJoengToi (SJT) is a platform in Guangzhou (CHN) founded in 2017. It stems from the needs of artists for a mutual practice space. SJT is located in Changgang subway station, Haizhu District, embedded in a community of local inhabitants. So far, 13 long-term practice projects have been stationed at SJT. The newly founded SYNNIKA space in Frankfurt am Main invites SJT to setup a temporary branch of its organization in Frankfurt. At SYNNIKA the group presents its membership model as well as their artistic practice. The installation features various SJT-related projects such as Fong Fo, Folding Room, Traveller, the Band Hellkitty, BenGuangDaHuaLang, Theater 44, with various newspapers, catalogs, self-published zines, publications and videos. On Friday, August 2, 2019 at 17:00, an introduction by independent curator and SJT-Member Li Xiaotian will offer the public an opportunity to have a first view as well as conversations with the artists, followed by an opening event with drinks and food at 19:00. On the day after the opening SJT will host a discussion on the current political conflicts in the Chinese Pearl River Delta.

Regular opening times: Sundays and Tuesdays from 16:00 – 18:00, and by appointment (hello@synnika.space)

SoengJoengToi (SJT) wurde 2017 in Guangzhou (CHN) von Künstler*innen gegründet, die auf der Suche waren, nach einem gemeinsamen und öffentlichen Arbeitsraum. Seit dem befindet sich SJT in der Nähe der Changgang U-Bahn-Station, im Haizhu District, eingebettet in eine Community aus lokalen Bewohner*innen des Viertels. Bis jetzt wurden 13 Langzeitprojekte bei SJT realisiert. Der neugegründete SYNNIKA-Raum in Frankfurt am Main lädt SJT ein eine temporäre Zweigstelle in den eigenen Räumlichkeiten zu eröffnen. Die Gruppe wird ihr Teilhabemodel präsentieren sowie Arbeiten ihrer künstlerischen Praxis. Ihre Installation im SYNNIKA-Raum zeigt verschiedene laufende Projekte: Fong Fo, Folding Room, Traveller, die Band Hellkitty, BenGuangDaHuaLang, Theater 44, sowie verschiedene Zeitungen, Kataloge, selbst publizierte Magazine und andere Publikationen und Videos. Am Freitag, den 2. August, 2019 wird Li Xiaotian als unabhängige Kuratorin und SJT-Mitglied eine Einführung in die SJT-Installation im SYNNIKA-Raum geben sowie die Künstler*innen aus Guangzhou vorstellen, gefolgt von einer Eröffnungsveranstaltung mit Essen und Getränken ab 19:00. Am Tag nach der Eröffnung wird SJT einen Workshop zu den aktuellen politischen Konflikten im chinesischen Perlflussdelta geben. Am Dienstag den 13.
