ROCK, MOON, ARCHIVE CENTER

I have likened the stay, work-in room in the dormitory at HomeBase Project 2016, to an Archive Center, and I will use it as an open ‘work studio’ during the Open House between November 3rd to11th. The archives are to be updated every day by using analogue method and to be composed as one art piece. At the same time, I will be working on the Booklet of the program and will exhibit portraits of the HB artist’s. The name of the work is connected to the meaning of the name Iwatsuki - literally meaning rock moon in Japanese.


exhibited from November 3rd - December 11th 2016 at HomeBase Saitama 2016 Open House​​



ROCK, MOON, ARCHIVE CENTER


「HomeBase Project2016」のドキュメント記録集を滞在制作部屋をアーカイブセンターに見立てて、11/3〜11/11まで公開制作します。レジデンスプログラムに合わせて日々更新されていく記録集で、極力アナログな手法を使い、1つのアートピースのように構成していきます。同時にアーティストのポートレイトを展示します。
