Noemi NIEDERHAUSER workshop “Unraveling stories”

2015.11.15.Sunday

Noemi NIEDERHAUSER’s workshop for the kids today.

“Six pillar” at “Sannnai Maruyama” which is the excavation of Jomon era is  the motif of Noemi’s art work at ACAC.

The archaeologists have different opinion for the shape and use about “Six pillar”, and this workshop aims to imagine about the shape and use of “Six pillar”, and make the construction and tools.

 

First, they went to the gallery and watched her art work.

Then, started making the construction.

Noemi was thinking that to use A4 size wood board for the base, and to use paper cray for making the house and tools. But the kids started to construct the house by the wood board and some paper pipes, and no one used the paper cray as the main material… We think that maybe the people in the Jomon era choose the best materials to make things, so the kids’ challenge should be respected.

Then, made a head form.

Oil paint is softer than cray, and the paint changes the form by their own weight.

And to make the surface smooth is difficult.

KAMO Akira Workshop

KAMO Akira’s workshop was held on 31th October.

Kamo participated the art festival “Tsushima Art Fantasia”(22th August – 27th November, http://artfantasia.asia/) before he came to ACAC.

He visited the forest in Tsushima at  midnight during his stay. There was totally dark and he couldn’t see anything, but listen some sounds like animal’s move or chirp.

The experience is the source of this workshop.

There are some branch or leaves in the room, and the participants could smell wet forest smell.

The activity was held in the dark room.

The participants could not see anything, and listen the sounds of the forest.

There were many colors of papers and crayon, but they could not choose by their eyes.

The sound was created by YOSHIHAMA Syo who is the artist and participated “Tsushima Art Fantasia, too. The sound included not only water’s fall or animal’s cry, but also electric sounds or sounds of hitting something, etc. Also, Kamo improvised the sounds by move the branch or leaves.

After one hour, turned on the light and see what did they draw.

The valance or shape of the animal looked strange, or many shapes didn’t look like animals.

But they could not draw same if they draw with the view.

The darkness made interesting combination of the colors and shapes.
