Yoyo Art Bar is a ‘living-site-specific-installation’ work for Koganecho Bazaar 2013 in Yokohama, Japan. The idea is to engage art and community through a sharing space, face-to-face interaction and physical space mediated networking. The work consist of 6 designed stages, installations and activity as an aesthetic relation.

The six stages are Kitchen, Bar, Artist Room, Living Room, Library and Window Gallery. The Kitchen, Bar, Living Room, Library and Window Gallery are designed as a sharing space for resident artists in Koganecho, while the Artist Room is use for Koganecho’s visiting guests.

The openess and sharing space concept is adopted from Indonesian art community culture. This project aims to share the artist’s experience and to challange the incredulousness and the angularity of Japanese culture, yet to develop international art network especially between Asian countries.
