2週間に渡って開催されたContemporary art exhibition が無事終了しました。累計約380名の方にお越しいただきました。会の規模や知名度、地理的条件、昨今の状況から鑑みてこの来訪者数は上出来だと思います。何よりも皆様から多くの応援や暖かい言葉を頂けた事が一番の成果と思います。また色々な新しい繋がりが出来ました。これからも休む事なく制作を続けて新作を皆様に披露出来たらと思います。ちなみに有難い事に石アートは完売しました^ ^
Contemporary art exhibition held through for two weeks has finished peacefully. Sum of the visitors were about 380. Considering the scale and name recognition of this exhibition, inconvenient location and recent situation, I think this number of visitors is wonderful. More than anything, the best result is that we received a lot of support and warm words from everyone. And I got new connections with some people. I hope that I’ll continue to produce new works without rest and show them to everyone 🙂 Btw, thankfully all of my stone art was sold out!
Installation is the art uniting with the spaces, there’re no restrictions. On the other hand, painting has the basic limitation of a square. Until now, my main focus for making painting was that how can I express my unique characteristics inside square, but by making a circular work in Germany, I was able to free from the so called “common sense of painting”. And this time, I feel that the possibilities of my art have expanded by creating a work titled “Forest”, which is an installation that involves all the cloth, strings, and even the pillars of the temple. I’ll try to find out how far I can pursue this style based on Japanese painting materials.
10月に参加するcontemporary art exhibitionは滋賀の浄厳院という由緒ある古刹で開催されます。今日はその打ち合わせでした。発起人の方から今の状況でこういう催しをする事についてどう思うか聞かれました。個人的にはアート(音楽やダンスの無形文化含め)は言葉では伝えられないエネルギーを共有できる、人間にとって一番大切なものと思っています。でも経済が疲弊すると生活する事が第一となりアートの存在意義は失われがちです。そんな訳でアートがどれだけ人の心を豊かにするか、実際に人と会って感動を共有する楽しさなど、今一度考えるきっかけに今回のexhibitionがなれば良いなと思っています。
The contemporary art exhibition I join in October will be held at old historical temple in Shiga prefecture. We took meeting today. A founder artist asked me what do you think about the meaning of holding this exhibition under this situation. Personally, the art (including dance and music) is the most important things what we human can exchange the energy needing no words. However, when the economic level decreases, living comes first and the meaning of art tends to be lost. So I hope this exhibition could be an opportunity to think that how the art can enrich people’s heart, and how fun to meet people actually and share emotions.
We humans have lived in coexistence with microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria for tens of thousands of years. There are innumerable microorganisms in our body, they are a part of the immune system and fight new microorganisms from the outside world. That is how we maintain or enhance our own immune function day by day. In other words, most external viruses are eliminated by their own immunity without being activated (growth = infection). However, PCR tests cannot tell if the virus is active or inactive. So it is judged as positive only by holding the virus, and in the current trend, PCR positive people are counted as corona infector. Why is the basics of infectious disease ignored this time? It’s a strange story. Will asymptomatic people become the source of infection? Asymptomatic is because the person’s immune system is superior to the virus, and the virus does not multiply in the body, so the risk of transferring it to another person is extremely low. In the first place, did people who were asymptomatic to flu and Streptococcus pneumoniae, which have a higher mortality rate, care about such a thing? The tricks with imprinting are used in TV and other reports as if to instill fear. So why do they use such a trick? We have to find out by ourselves and come up with a convincing answer. I think you can alleviate your fear by studying various information and understanding it theoretically. *The above opinion is my personal one based on biological knowledge. *i found out below accusation video by doctors in Germany https://youtu.be/SEFD6b_sRMk
After half a year I met some friends, who warmly gave me words of comfort about my experience in Germany. Indeed it was hard time temporarily when the circumstances changed worsening rapidly. However I was making works whole time before quarantine, under quarantine and after quarantine, I really enjoyed my life because I could freely do the things(painting) I wanna do the most. I realized it’s quite important to have unshakable things inside me no matter what the outside situation is.
I came back to Japan on Wednesday, now I’m still suffering from jet lag. I feel heavy drowsiness from morning to noon. I wanna get used to Japan time soon. And it was decided to join a group exhibition in Shiga in October. I’ll start making works towards that, can’t wait:)
前の私の個展で知り合いになったsound artist の方からレコードカバーの制作を依頼されました。私にとってドイツでの初めての仕事です！めっちゃ嬉しい🥰音源はまだ出来てないので彼の歴史や過去の作品からイメージを膨らませて描きました。とても気に入ってくれた様です。ありがたき幸せ^ ^
A sound artist who came to my previous solo exhibition offered me to make a painting for his record cover. It’s my first job in Germany, so happy!! The sounds have not completed yet, so I got inspiration from his history and his past work. Seems that he likes my work, it’s my pleasure:)
My new work is displayed at group exhibition started yesterday in Leipzig. The title is “Sound Circle”-unison-. I was planning to put it on the wall, it was put on the floor due to lack of space, but it’d be so nice matting with tiles pattern. I expect to keep making “split and combine series” for Japanese painting, because it’s pretty easy to bring 🙂
My solo exhibition for eight days was done peacefully. On opening day, many people has come, but after next days only a few people visited. To be honest, I wanted many people to come more, but seems that it’s difficult for those who have anxiety against virus. However almost of the all visitors gave a good response for my works, it’s my pleasure:) Anyways I feel so happy giving me this great chance and experience. Next, I’ll join a group exhibition at Leipzig soon, let you know about details. And not decided yet, but second solo exhibition might be held in Leipzig, if I stay Germany more longer. Now I’m thinking how should I do, it’s quite tough decision for me.
Yesterday the preparation of display at gallery was completed taking seven hours. Although it was quite hard work to do something such as window cleaning, floor sweeping and so on, we could do preparing somehow. And I made a green tea bake for tomorrow opening party. Yummy ! Hope German people like this taste:)
