Capacious Exhibition #3

Capacious is representing seven artists with disabilities living in Osaka. They launched the project in July 2016, supported by a regional welfare grant from the Osaka Foundation of Welfare. They chose Capacious as their project title, representing it through the symbolic image of a large bag with no compartments. They would like to take this project as an opportunity to re-consider the potential of art when experienced without the baggage of conventional trajectories defining contemporary art or limitations of language.

CLASSICS & ANTHOLOGIES
MIKIO NARUSE


En collaboration avec l'ambassade du Japon en Belgique et Japan Foundation.

Les films imprégnés de mélancolie de Mikio Naruse semblent avoir été oubliés avec le temps. Même à l'échelle internationale, c'est dans l'ombre d'Ozu et de Mizogushi qu'il faut chercher la trace de ce réalisateur japonais. Avec une rétrospective de vingt titres, CINEMATEK entend remettre son travail en lumière.

171016_inori
INORI

Japanese traditional music concert (Wahensho; Koto; Shamisen)

Since ancient times, the Japanese have been “folks of prayers (inori)”. A deep appreciation for nature’s blessings and hopes for peace have formed the basis for their festivals and seasonal traditions. These feelings of “hopes (inori) for peace” and “gratitude”, through various Japanese landscapes, have been interpreted into songs. Using an instrument called wahensho and the traditional koto, we dedicate these songs of "hope" for the people's peace of mind.(Yukine)

古来から日本人は「祈りの民」でありました。自然の恵みに感謝をして、人々の平安を祈る心が、日本の祭りや四季の行事をはぐくんできました。「平安への祈り」と「感謝」の心を、日本の様々な風景の中から写し取り、楽曲にしました。和編鐘という祭器で作られた楽器と、日本の伝統楽器箏で、その「いのり」の音楽を人々の平和を願って、奏でたいと思います。(有機音)
