Is the division built by students themselves at the Student Exhibition?
Yes, students will build the division themselves.
Will the circulation and movement be around the clusters of individual exhibitions or in between them?
Regarding the Exhibition of Countries and Regions, the exhibits are currently planned to be right next to each other. The Student Exhibition will have individual clusters.
Will the surface be flat?
ECR will be indoors and have a flat surface. The Student Exhibition takes place outdoors and therefore there might be uneven surfaces. It is a concrete floor.
What about sound and proximity during the installation? Will PQ provide some sound installation? And how will PQ deal with the division of individual installations as the sounds might interfere with each other?
Artists should be considerate in balancing the volume levels in order to minimise interference between exhibits. Please, create soundproof installations if possible. If not, it is good not to overwhelm the shared space but use a reasonable volume level.
It is unclear whether you want us to have dividing walls. Are you asking us not to include dividing walls?
We prefer not to have dividing walls unless they serve the purpose of the exhibit.
Will there be Internet at the Student Exhibition?
Will there be security at the Student Exhibition or a storage space?
Security will be provided 24/7. Storage space for the outdoor exhibits will not be provided, however you can get in touch with your country’s ECR and ask them to store your equipment at their exhibition location as the ECR spaces will be locked during the night.
How will you deal with the scorchingly hot weather?
We will ensure supplies of drinking water at as many locations as possible. Some individual cooling tools like aerosols or fans might be provided. There will be AC indoors.
When will be the selection of projects and confirmation of the designated projects decided?
PQ Projects have their deadlines and dates of announcing the selected subjects. Please, read the open calls.
Will it be possible to prepare something during the night or the very early morning?
It might be possible if agreed upon in advance. Remember that there is a curfew between 10pm and 6am.
Light design; what lights are we going to use? Can we use our own and can we hang them?
Yes, but you have to bring your own truss or stands. Some lights can be mounted on the pillars indoors, but there will be some weight limitations.
The timeline, space references by May. Is it good to have drawings or plans of spaces by the end of May or is it sufficient to have them by the end of August?
August is fine, but the sooner the better. The sooner we will have a clear outline of your space, the sooner we will be able to designate each area for all the artists.
When will we know the division of spaces?
You will know them in June 2022.
Can we attach anything to the floors or the walls?
It is not possible to use nails or drill into the walls or floors.
Can we use steel wire to hang something on it?
It is not possible to drill into the walls. You can use steel wire, but you need to figure out its attachment without drilling.
Is the neighbour in the designated area attached to our own?
Yes, the spaces are outlined according to the floor plan.
