Showreels

Showreel / the President's holiday

Let’s just admit the truth! The truth that artists are artists and profits are not created although art factories are built and artistic laborers are hired with a higher cost. The artists can create other products than artworks to maintain the spaces, give salaries that they promised to the laborers, become administrators to earn funds from the government, and play a CEO role for certain period of time. However, such temporary methods and contradictory dramatic situations are not sustainable.

Showreel / Cleaning Performance

“artists are self-employed”.  Art needed to be business so needed to have spaces and people. So employees were hired. Even though spaces and people were prepared, products were not manufactured from 9 am to 6 pm since art industry is not manufacturing industry. That is because art is not a manufacturing industry.   Art is not the business manufacturing products but a special work creating values.

Showreel / Introduction

Salad, a nomadic social enterprise, decided to admit the fact that we are self-employed. A role of CEO, bookkeeper, regular artistic laborer, non-regular artistic laborer, temporarily occupy unused spaces in cities for eight hours from 9 am to 6 pm a day to work for a social enterprise. They practice and work in unused spaces in cities. Their daily works will be so-called social performances. We will not be embarrassed but create artworks even though nobody asks for our artworks. Every space in cities is our stage and every citizen drifting in cities is our actors and actresses and audience.
