CTR is a cultural village that moving for diverse enjoy.

Culture is the spiritual value that only mankind can produce and consume, and it is the essence of infinite possibilities that are maintained and developed through various learning. Also, only culture will be the true value that proves the fundamental development and survival of mankind. The civilization achieved by the accumulation of knowledge cannot be a measure of human value and development. We need wisdom on how to use it and the intelligence to lead it, and this complex phenomenon of wisdom and intelligence can be called culture. In other words, we need a culture that meets or overpowers civilization rather than mankind that is made up of only civilization and mankind that has only developed civilization.


For this reason,  CTR freely reinterprets various cultures of the past and present, transcending times and borders, and recreates a new culture based on this. And the process also attempts a diverse and free-spirited approach beyond the existing framework. CTR produces and distributes various projects freely. CTRForm Architecture Studio proposes various structures from human scale to urban scale through research on economic, social, and cultural forms as well as shapes and spaces. CTRSound pursues music with an independent spirit that has stepped back from competition and economic logic. In addition, Onepiece Magazine, Playground project, and Earthrun project were conducted. All CTR projects are published after being organized in CTRPrint. In addition, CTR operates the cultural space Jebidabang for natural exchanges and experiments with creators in various fields, and CTRCabinet for various exhibitions and events. All cultural contents of CTR are always created on the premise of enjoyment and extraordinary interest.

The'EarthRunFestival', where you can feel how enjoyable it is to go around without purpose, started in 2007 at Nanji Hangang Park in Seoul, and since 2017, it has held a magical feast for one day on Sangsu street every year. The Roaming Festival is a'half step' back from competition and economic logic. As you can see from the name of the festival, it was designed with the intent to play comfortably, relax, enjoy, and feel the atmosphere of the neighborhood for just one day in busy daily life. Watching performances that start quietly all over the streets, participating in programs like street yoga and lounging, wandering around the neighborhood without a purpose, and looking completely at every nook and cranny of the neighborhood you've never found.

Program

+ EarthRun Running is a game who's who compete go slowly. If you look around and take a slow pace, you are the finish line.

+ EarthRun Golf is an urban golf that uses the terrain throughout the streets. Follow the rolling balls to greet the store clerk and a cat.

+ EarthRun Street Golf Focus!  yoga. Ignore the envious gaze of people passing by. 

+ EarthRun Strret Gigs Think of a live gigs in front of a convenience store. At the beauty salon we went to yesterday, at a regular bar table, someone is singing today

EarthRun Project

1/12

The EarthRun Project is a tour program that shares the joy of wandering.

 

People who don't want to go to art galleries or events large and small gather together and set out for the day's destination. However, the purpose of the EarthRun project is to roam. You can arrive at the exhibition hall, stop at another place in the middle, or change directions. ​It is not a boring tour where you reach your destination in the fastest way, achieve a predetermined goal, and break up.

The EarthRun Project enjoys going.

The inside and outside are divided by the act of'wearing on', and the created space is contrasted with a private space where I can be seen purely and a public space where rationality hides me, like a girl in a beautiful dress. The contradictory image reminds me of the word home through the borders that illuminate the space where I and I are and the outside objects that are peeked beyond it.

'Worry' means'what I always wanted to abandon'. And what I want to throw away is so-called'garbage'. This is in line with the past of Nanjido. Collect trash on the trash island and make a kind of giant trash can.

In other words, from the idea that I want to throw away my ‘worry’ as trash, I tried to make this container a ‘place where people throw away worries.’
