Neighbors_Exhibition

道を歩いていると何気なく目に入る、住宅の前にある植物たち。家主の思い入れのある所有物、演出物でありながらも、その置き場所が故に、住宅の前を通り過ぎる人々の瞬間的な鑑賞物として無作為に共有され、風景の一部となることで、プライベートとパブリック、その間の曖昧な存在として漂っている。

今回、ここに様々な家主から集められた植木たちは、住宅・敷地に沿って並び置かれている時のあり様や、担っていた役割から解放され、個々のものとして新しい在り方を見せてくれるだろう。

日頃は、作家の自宅 や近しい友人の庭、本学研究室のベランダなどを彩る植木が集められ、当館前に 広がる芝生の上に展開された。

One casually notices plants in front of residences while walking down the street. Although they are the property of the homeowners and staged by them, because of their placement, they are randomly shared as momentary objects of appreciation by people passing by the houses. They become part of the landscape, floating as an ambiguous presence between the private and the public.

The plants collected from various homeowners in this exhibition are free from their roles when placed along the house and site and will show us a new way of being as individual objects.

 

The plants, which usually decorate the artist's home, the gardens of close friends, and the balcony of the university's laboratory, were collected and spread out on the lawn in front of the museum.
