Art Triennal in Niigata

さて、先日大学の古美術研究(通称こびけん)で新潟、越後妻有のアート・トリエンナーレへ行ってきました!2泊3日、バスを貸し切って色んなアート作品を見に行き、はしゃいで、飲んで、トランプをする。そんな素敵な旅行でした。(笑)でも本当に楽しかった。旅行計画の話し合いは全然進まないし、どうなることかと思ってたけど、最終的にはバスにした分すごい気楽に楽しめたし、自然も多かったからか、単純に気持ちよかったな。

大学の後期はメディアからグラフィックに転向するから、みんなでこうやって集まる事はもうあまり無いのかもしんないけど、仲良くなれて良かったなぁ。やっぱ旅行っていいもんだ。ロッジに寝袋ってのも、今更なかなかこんな機会ないし、楽しかった。

個人的に好きだった作品は、古い民家の全体を黒い毛糸で張り巡らした、塩田千春の「家の記憶」、学校全体を光と音で演出したクリスチャン・ボルタンスキー+ジャン・カルマンの「最後の教室」それと名前は忘れたけど、クモの巣を直接標本にしていた作品に、あとジェームズ・タレルの「光の館」はやっぱり良かった。光の館に関しては夕方から夜にかけてちゃんと泊まってみたいというのが本音だけど。

下にいろんな旅の写真貼っときまーす。

I went to Art Triennal in Niigata, with my college classmates. It's a part of class curriculum, and we picked the place to see and made a plan. We reserve middle size bus and a driver, to go to Niigata prefecture. It took about six hours drive to get there, so it's quite far, but because of Niigata is located in North side of Japan, there were much better temperature and less humidity, so we were able to enjoy summer study tour! ;P We stayed there two nights at the wooden lodge, and were slept using sleeping bags. We struggled and took so long time to make this plan, but finally everything worked well and we enjoyed a lot!

I will change my major from Media course to Graphic Design course, next semester so it was might be the last chance to hangout with them. Therefore I was happy to go around and talk to them and drinking a lot together at night. Having a lot of nature around calms down myself.

Here are some of my favorite works that I found from this triennal: First one is created by Chiharu Shioda, title is Memory of the Home. She used black woolen yarn to cover entire old house. The idea was simple, however that simple method changed entire atmosphere and I liked what she did. Second one is created by Christian Boltanski, called Final Classroom. Entire elementary school is directed with a lot of lights and sound of heart. That was very illusory and was also bit scary. I liked the atmosphere. And I also liked the specimen of spider's thread, but I forgot the name of the artist. House of Light, created by James Turrel is also one of my favorite piece, which is known as Japanese house for meditation. A lot of controlled lights direct entire atmosphere and it was really beautiful. I hope I can stay all night someday.
