Surplace artspace is an independent working space that promotes contemporary art and artistic techniques, blurring the boundaries of the stereotypical roles of the artist, the administrator, the critic, the art gallery manager etc.. The work of art is the core of this experiment. The method of display simply showcases two of three artworks of the same artists, or two works artworks made by different artists, or group shows.  By so doing, audiences perceive discursive interactions between ideas and souls, the similarities and differences of which may create assonance or clashes. Everyone knows when an exhibition starts, no one knows when it ends. The meaning of surplus, therefore, is a sort of “infra-mince”.
