The theme of this exhibition is that in modern life, we face the problem of not having problems. Today, especially in developed countries, many of us live in contentment—we are guaranteed freedom, equality and human rights. For artists who create, we are burdened with the reality that we rarely experience hardship; in other words, we have the problem of having no problems. This theme is saturated all around us and there seems to be no escape, but if we quiet our breath and contemplate, we see that loneliness appears in the form of an isolated individual. This loneliness, along with tribulation and sadness was once sublimated through the empathy that is rooted in large communities, but we are at risk of losing this sense of community, as individualism has become so valued in our modern world. While there has been much to gain from having to live as individuals, at the same time, loneliness has become mandatory. Have we lost the ability empathize with others and consider them an extension of ourselves in the community? There was only one origin, but like the big bang that expanded the universe, are we destined to scatter away like particles toward even further independence?

Ancient culture and sense of community are still preserved in Kyoto, and it may be one of the few cities that successfully employs the dynamics of a mobile. Mobile refers to a structure in which individual parts are connected in a balanced state, and similarly, Kyoto is made up of individuals who stay connected to form a larger community. This structure is still preserved to this day perhaps because Kyoto promotes the strength of the individual, and so the individuals gives back to the community in return. We hope this exhibition will inspire you to remember the existence of community and to think proactively about what you can do.

現代に生きる私たちが「問題なき問題」に直面していること。これが、本展におけるテーマの出発点となりました。現代、特に先進国に生きる人の多くは、自由や平等、人権を確保され、生命体として満たされた状態にあります。藝術を生み出すアーティストにとって、このような生命体としての苦悩がなく、身を以て「問題」を感じることが少ないという状況は、換言すれば、「問題なき問題」を抱える、ということになります。一見、飽和しきった、出口なき問題に見えるこのテーマも、ゆっくり息を潜めて思索していくと、そこには狭められた個という孤独のかたちがぽっかり浮かび上がってきます。かつて孤独を含むさまざまな苦悩や悲しみは、大きな共同体に根付いた物語という共感装置によって昇華されてきましたが、個を重視する現代に至り、私たちはそのコミュニティを失いつつあります。もちろん、個として生きなければならなくなった人間は多くのものを得ましたが、同時に、昇華しきれない孤独を義務付けられたのです。もう、私たちは大きな共同体で自分の延長として他者を感じることはできないのでしょうか。始まりはひとつであっても、一度分散したら戻ることがないビックバン以降の宇宙の膨張、そして、そこに散らばってしまった粒子のように、人は孤立し、分散していく運命にあるのでしょうか。

古き文化が守られ、失われた共同体がまだ残っている京都という地は、『MOBILE(モビール)』の作用がなされている数少ない都市だと言えるかもしれません。この『MOBILE』とは、バランスを保ちながら個体を繋げるストラクチャのことで、京都では、人々が個として分散せずに、コミュニティを形成しているように思えます。それを現代まで持続可能にしてきたのは、個の力がより巨大な都市という器にかしづき、都市もまた個に還元してきたからでしょう。失われた共同体の存在に気づき、自らが何をすべきかを考える、本展が、そのような機会となれば嬉しく思います。

Daisy Balloon | PIECE OF PEACE

/December 10 , 2012

World Heritage Exhibit Built With Lego Brick
website : http://www.pofp.jp/

-construction-
There is fear in that we are all different from one another, but that is also the gateway to self-consciousness.
Self-consciousness was once whole, but in the modern trend where all things whole get broken down,it too is about to get deconstructed.
For that reason, people now seek to reconstruct their consciousness by extending it onto others.
Through this process of extension, we have learned to unravel things down to their basic elements.
We are succeeding at digging up new knowledge of what it is we all share.
This knowledge that bonds different people together seems to appear suddenly,but in reality it is already coded into our planet, our universe.
We construct things from the most basic building blocks.
What are we to discover from this process?
To find the answer, we must continue to turn our gaze toward those around us. -text by Arata Sasaki-
