PERFORMING COMMUNITY, ECOLOGICAL ART AND JIRISAN PROJECT

The Jirisan Project (ongoing) was conceived in 2013 as a new form of community art project initiated by artists, curators, religious and community leaders, who tried to foster community revitalization through the mutually interrelated ecological, cosmological, national, and global perspectives and imaginations. With the slogans of “from the region to the nation/world/cosmos” and “from the nation/world/cosmos back to the region,” this project explores the ways in which artists and designers can support and learn from the initiatives of the grassroots inter-religious and community network of Buddhists, Catholics, Protestants, and Cheondogyo, operating in the Jiri mountain region since a decade ago to establish a sustainable rural community. This project also shed a new light on the significance of the reverse immigrations (Gwinong), or “back-to-land” movement of young people who left the city and moved to the countryside to subsist through farming and other activities since the mid- 1990s. The returnee as driving forces of the community and religious network, have turned this rural community into a hub of counter-capitalist, co-operative, and ecological education and social movement, fostering a new socio-economic and philosophical perspective that arose from a profound critique of the unsustainable mode of development the rapidly industrialized country had undergone.
