statement

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.  

六甲ミーツアート2015への出品作品である本作は、「冬のあいだ六甲山から神戸市街へ吹き下ろす風である『六甲おろし』が、実は数千年の昔から六甲山頂でつくられる人工物である」という架空の物語をもとに制作された、映像を中心とする複合型のインスタレーション作品である。制作物はインタビューベースのモキュメンタリー映像、シーケンスごとのパネル展示、さらには六甲山頂各所に配置されたモニュメントとしての記念碑である。「逆さ石」と名付けられた記念碑は、モキュメンタリーの重要な役割を果たすだけでなく、期間中、六甲山頂の複数箇所に設置された。(263文字)
