Roppongi Art Night "Move Your Body"

Hi there, how's your weekend?
well, this weekend had been a productive one for me.
I went to a flea market with my mom 
then met up with my friend, Azo and headed to Roppongi Art Night.
It's a one-night, all-nigt art festival, which begins at 10am on Saturday and runs straight through until 6pm on Sunday. It mainly takes place throughout the street of Roppongi.
The last time i went there was two years ago with my friends.
At that time, we stayed awake for Art Night and looked around some beautiful art works.
But this time, we just stayed there for a few hours and went back home.
We're just getting old... haha


こんにちは、階段を上がる時はつま先歩きで筋トレしてますマツウラです。
もうすぐ、足をだしはじめちゃう季節でしょ。がんばらないとね。
というわけで、みなさん週末はなにしてました〜?
私は、Roppongi Art Night にちょろっと行ってきましたよ。
多分行った人多いよね。
一昨年は、オールして楽しみましたが、今回はほんの数時間。
もうおばあちゃん眠くてね。笑

So anyway, this year's theme is "Move Your Body!"directed by Hibino Katsuhiko.
It focuses on the "physical nature of art". So basically there're lots of audience-participation works.


今年のテーマは、『動け!カラダ!』
「アートの持つ身体性」にフォーカスし、ダンスとか、体験型アートが多かったですね。

This is one of my favorite. "MACHINAKA Walk": Shinoda Taro
Lunar Reflection Transmission Technique

He captured the moon above various cities through an astronomical telescope he made himself.
This time, we got to see the film outside and listen to music with headphones.
i mean if it's not that cold, i would probably stay there for hours watching it.


これは自分は動かないけど、好きなやつ。
篠田太郎さんの《月面反射通信技術》という作品。
世界のさまざまな都市の月と町並みがモノクロでうつされ、
すてきな音楽を聴きながら鑑賞。
寒くなかったら、イスでも持ってきて、ぼーっと見ていたかった。

This man looked so cold... he's just standing outside and holding iPad... "PAUSE"
I don't even know how long he stayed there like that.
Sometimes art seems a bit harsh...

で、この人はひたすら寒そうだった。
何時間この状態なんだろう。
アートってときにつらいね。

then we got totally inspired by the theme "Move Your Body" and this just happened. haha

そして、私たちも『動け!カラダ!』にインスパイアされ、こんなことに。

Move Your body!
Eyes move, hands move, legs move, fingers move, heads move, hips move, chests move, throats move, bellies move, mouths move, noses move, ears move, eyelids move, lungs move, cells move, hearts move.
Ergo, art moves.
Art moves within our bodies.
When the body moves,
art moves.
So shout it to the land, and to the cosmos!
Move Your body!
―Hibino Katsuhiko―

There were lots of weird works that i don't even understand.
But i really enjoyed exploring new art.

私の頭では理解不能なアートもたくさんありましたが、
なるほどこれもアートなのね!っていう発見が面白かったです。


PS. I had lovely lunch gathering at Kuramae yesterday.
But i didn't take lots of photos of it with my camera.
and this is one taken by my iPhone. haha
