Fragile Color

2017

Tokyo, Japan

 

Performance

30 minutes

A4 copy papers

 When we see a strong light, the afterimage from the light is left on our view. It has something color and shape. But even if we try to focus it, we can not get any concrete appearance of the afterimage. Because it is easy to be faded, and hard to be captured. Therefor, the afterimage, drifting between our view and outworld, remains visible and invisible.

 In this performance, I make afterimage by looking up the light intentionally, and leave it on my view. After moving my view point with the afterimage down to the white papers set at my feet, I pick up a piece of paper while making the afterimage reflect on it, and put the paper on my face. Then I raise my head, and blow up the paper from my face into the air. I repeat these series of actions.

 Trough this performance, I try to re-configure a parallel relationship between my body, outworld, and afterimage which caused from myself.

 光を見続ける。そこから目を離すと、視界には光の残像が残る。残像は消えるまで視界についてくる。逆にそれを視点で追っても追いきれない。身体と外との界面をただようその色や形は、不確かであり続ける。

 作者の天井の照明を見上げ、視界に残像を生み出す。しばらくして視点を下げ、像を足元の紙へと移す。紙の上にそれを捉えながら1枚を拾い上げ、顔にのせる。そのまま上へと顔を上げ、紙を宙へと吹き上げる。これを繰り返す。

 

 自身のなかで作り出されるものとの並行的な関係を再構成したパフォーマンス。
