Public production vol.2 Tomoko Sato Fox, crane, horse

Public production is a program in which an artist stays in a museum for a certain period of time to create a work, and see the production process and the completed work.

This year, which will be vol.2, we will invite Tomoko Sato, who will practice art by "narrative" mainly in lecture performances.Sato is an artist who repeatedly researches historical facts and lands and creates new narratives by going back and forth between documents and fiction.Her narrative of her gives an opportunity to think about objects and peripheral matters, and thus about history.

In this public production, we will take up a project related to animals "foxes, cranes, horses" that have close relationships with humans from among the productions that Sato has done so far, and proceed with research focusing on "foxes" in particular. increase.The fox project was premiered in 2018 under the title of "Shirokitsune, Hidden Song", but as Sato says, "Even if the work was announced once, it will grow by deepening research" throughout the session. Attempt to update.

The updated work will be staged as a lecture performance in the latter half of the session, and a screening of the video containing it will be exhibited.Please enjoy the various developments from the production process of the work to the presentation.

At the venue, we set up a material room where you can browse materials used for research, and a studio where Sato can concentrate on reading materials and writing texts.It would be great if you could get a feel for the overlap of thoughts behind the work by looking at the aspects of the artist that are rarely published.

* The artist's stay date, events, etc. will be updated from time to time.
