The Project

“A Very Hot Pot”is aresidency projecthostedby Hangzhou’s Inna Art Space, with additional supportfromSchool of Intermedia-Art (China Academy of Art) and the Swiss Arts Council Prohelvetia. 


Participating artists include: BigniaWehrli,Liao Wenfeng, Stefan Baltensperger and David Siepert. The residencylasts forone month. 


The present project has grown out of friendship, which has developedbetween the participating artists. Everything began one New Year’s Eve, in themiddle of Swiss winter. The artists prepared a Chinese-style hotpot to mark thebeginning of the New Year’s Day.There, the nourishing aromas,theboiling soup of the pot itself, the undulating,oral exchanges that took place, along with the unforeseen headaches caused bythe carbon-monoxide fumes — the sparkling stars, the night sky, fireworks andthe rejuvenating effects of a welcoming gust of fresh air… It seems like allthese things somehow contributedto a special bond 


Inside this HOTPOT — the soup itself— between the ingredients a sort ofperpetual harmonisationof flavours and quality occurs — all these things (eventhe carbon-monoxide!)— make theircontribution. 

During the one-month period of the Hangzhou SUPER-HOTPOT residency, theparticipating artists will find new influences — new inspiration maybe similarto afore-described Swiss HOTPOT happening — something thatwill make themvery activeartists within their current living situation –the China of today!
