march 9 – 19, “umarekawaru” pascal viout photography @slope gallery

every time I say “the sea of fukushima” i feel a tingle, but that’s our strength, isn’t it?
like a tingle – chikkuri, chikkuri – I hope this beauty and story touches many people.

our friend, pascal is a french photographer who fell in love at first sight here and has been photographing ever since. that was in 2016 if i remember correctly, just a few weeks later he started a new life in Japan with his partner manon. today, in march of 2022, he is finally showing what he captured in fukushima at the slope gallery. together with the presentation of soichiro mihara’s “blank projects“, “umarekawaru” will be shown at the slope gallery until march 19.  how you can miss this opportunity?!!

march 9 – 19, soichiro mihara “blank projects”- viewing online show@slope gallery

ボードカルチャーから発信される気分のいいアートとアートブックスを紹介するBueno!Books/slope galleryの森本由美さんからの久しぶりのお電話に、あまりにうれしくペラペラと近況をご報告。そうそう、由美さんすごいのですよ、三原聡一郎さんのアート作品が縁側の家に展示されているのですよ、と自慢をしたのは確か1月末のことです。あれよあれよという間にslope galleryが三原さんのオンライン展覧会「空白に満ちた世界」のビューイング会場となることが決まりました。

縁側の家に展示されている《  鈴》は、《空白のプロジェクト/blank project》4連作のひとつで、三原さんが2011年3月11日を契機に、テクノロジーと社会の関係性を考察するために発表してきたもの。福島県の浜通りにある縁側の家に《  鈴》がやって来たことで、三原さんがサーフィンを体験し、その体験を提供するイベント「3月11日に波に乗ろう」が行われる・・・この一連に共感した由美さんの応援企画なる「三原聡一郎オンライン展覧会『空白に満ちた世界』ビューイング@slope gallery」です。オンライン展覧会の可能性を問うプロジェクトに、にわかに登場したオンサイト・ビューイング会場。面白がってGOサインを出す三原さん、さすが。

march 4 – 21, 2022 – online exhibition “blank project” by soichiro mihara

アーティストの三原聡一郎さんが「キュレーターの四方幸子さんから紹介されました」と美学者の松谷容作さんと共に縁側の家にふらりと来たのは2021年の3月のこと。縁側でお茶を飲んでいるうちに、三原さんの作品を縁側の家に設置することがするすると決まりました。そうして縁側の家にやってきた《  鈴》は、やけに落ち着き払って、見えないけれど確かにあるものの存在を知らせ続けてくれています。縁側の家の物語に寄りそう放射線や境界を、あまりにもそっけなくちーんとするクールなやつ。なんだ、案外、軽やかなんだなこの土地は。

« of 4 »

it was march 2021 when artist soichiro mihara and aesthete yosaku matsutani visited engawanoie and said, “i was introduced by curator yukiko shikata.” while we were having tea on the engawa (veranda), it was naturally decided to install mihara’s artwork in engawanoie. since the early summer of 2021, when it was actually installed, the “bell” has been quietly telling us about the existence of things we cannot see, but which are there. it rings, as it should, so casually that i feel that our narrative about this land is also as it should be.

the exhibition is streamed live (free/24 hours) from 15 venues including engawanoie.

V4C engawanoie shooting night
on the occasion of the japan project of the documentary film Voyage for Change
cook together eat together!
date: saturday, 20 april 2019 from 18h00
venue: engawanoie

documentary film Voyage for Change
This film is an adventure – a catalyst for inner transformation of young grown-ups alike; a trigger for positive actions of Hope & Change where teen protagonists take the lead.
The documentary Voyage for Change follows teens as they travel the world from Paris to Delhi, San Francisco, Tokyo – and other destinations. Meeting peers from different cultures and lifestyles, committed adults, changemakers and experts alike, they question the answers we grown-ups all too often have ready – immune to the simple and straight-forward challenges of those who will outlive us for many years.

director: DIDIER BONNET, acclaimed french documentarist/curator, creator of the international MEGACITY SHORTDOCS FILMFESTIVAL in FRANCE
