OASIS PROJECT (2004-2007)
Oasis Project is a space revival project which gives new life to abandoned or dead spaces in the city. Oasis Project began in 2004 with a hope to bring life and art together. The purpose of the project is to create a community where its people, including both artists and non-artists, share the same goal of living a community life by using art to transform abandoned spaces into vivid and active spaces. The process of Oasis project includes, both directly and indirectly, art producers, project designers, art theorists, lawyers, community activists, police, journalists and people from the community. Thus this project is a combination of social activism and art activism.
The project aims to expand the production and distribution of art to society through the activity of "art Squat”. The project poses a serious question on private ownership and a peoples' right to use space in a capitalist society. .
Oasis Project wants to create a community where its people lead an active and free life of art by transforming a modern city's deserted places into valuable space for the community.
