Stay in the LADY H

Time Scale ART 
Exhibition title : HOSOMI CONTEMPORARY003-Toricol'art


  After completing the work  "Beginning -a view from the space ship", I wanted to explore further the concept of how our imagery perception can be changed with narratives.
 In preparation of this work, I had a series of interviews with a woman called “Lady H” over a two-month period. I knew nothing about her prior to this work.
We exchanged several correspondences and sometimes she took me out for a walk around Tokyo.
Consequently, I created a fictional story about her inner thoughts and the landscape that lives in her mind.
The purpose of this work is for viewers to experience her inner world by listing to the fictional story and learning it through the different senses: namely, hearing, smelling, and from witnessing.


Place: A teahouse in Hosomi museum (Hosomi museum in Kyoko is renowned for its exquisite old Japanese garden and tea house.)
5 performances / day x 4 days = 20 performances.  Reservation only.

Beginning - A view from the space ship

Time Scale ART
helpartime (TOKYO)

The ceremony of rediscovering the everyday scenery.
This work can be interpreted as a ceremony of rediscovering the everyday  scenery around us.
By listening to a fictional story of the link between our lives and the universe, the view in front of us somehow is changed. Even the way we look at the sky can be slightly different after taking part in the work.
At the end of this work, audience opens his eyes and sees the view of Tokyo city right in fort of him as this small room has an entire wall made of glass.
The view is incredible. 
Now he is left in the room, looking out the window, one particular day, one particular moment, facing the view of Tokyo metropolis with its gigantic Shinjyuku buildings further away.None of the elements in each performance were the same; the condition of the light in the room, temperature, the view from the window and even the way story was  told.
