Para Site—with people as a basic formative element—is a collective of diverseness. Diversity is common to the artistic practices of its members, as well as to the activities generated by the art around (para) many different sites such as conventional gallery space, the Internet, in publications and the local community.
‘Untitled’ is the possibility for further development. Para Site itself is a process of making. It is a continuous sense of history, even at a PAUSE we review our past and prepare for the future. ‘Untitled’ also declares that Para Site’s diverse activities are mutually inextricable and none of greater import, although individuality is greatly respected.
Our whole project is a collective development of ideas. Based on a response to a curatorial proposal for a physical reconstruction of Para Site in Gwangju, an interior section (by ), conceived as the mainstay of the Para Site structure, will physically and conceptually unfurl to display our works and activities.
In ‘Extension/ Expansion’, the diverse activities of Para Site members have been integrated to demonstrate the close and intimate relationship among people, and between people and the site. It also furthers our notion of the transformation and dislocation of Para Site at a new context, the international biennale.
