During winter there is a cold wind blowing from Mount Rokko down to Kobe city called “Rokko Oroshi”. “Anaba and Kataba”, the work I presented at the annual Rokko Meets Art 2015, takes this real natural phenomenon and creates a fictional narrative around it, claiming that the “Rokko oroshi” wind is actually a man-made product that has been manufactured in the area for thousands of years. This installation consists of multiple parts, mainly a mockumentary film, snapshots from the film displayed on panels, and stone monuments. These monuments called “Sakasa-ishi” (Upside-down stones) are not only a vital part of the mockumentary narrative, but they were also placed in various places on Mount Rokko.
