Workshop “Polishing the Spectacle of Myself: A Brief Introduction to the Work of ESTAR(SER)”
at A.I.T. Room
Media: Workshops - Talks
(2017-11-24)

On 24 November 2017, at AIT, visiting associates of ESTAR(SER) will offer a brief introduction to its past and present work, and present ongoing research into the history of the Order of the Third Bird (including a discussion of recent reinterpretations of the mysterious objects known as the MacGinitie Goggles). A number of ESTAR(SER) publications will be on hand, and several “protocols” for sustained attention inspired by those in use by the “Birds” will be made available. Experimentation will be encouraged. New research, recently come to light, suggests that the eleven pairs of “Ganzfeld effect” goggles found in the so-called MacGinitie Collection of the W-Cache may have been used by associates of the Order of the Third Bird across the twentieth century as part of a heretofore unknown symbolic ritual of self-preparation. Did these individuals, with their focus on the proper way to look at works of art, collectively soil (and then cleanse?) various eyeglasses and protective eyewear in an intimate performance of their ambition to “see anew”? The evidence remains difficult to interpret. Links to Aldous Huxley’s Art of Seeing are suspected. [Outline] Date and Time: Nov. 24 (Fri) 19:00-21:00 (18:30 Door open) Venue: Daikanyama AIT Room Capacity: 20 Admission: ¥1000 (¥800 for Students and AIT Base Members / Free for AIT House and Support Members) *All admissions with 1 drink / Booking required / English only *Please see the official website for booking and further details.

Play IMT (7) - In Between Worlds

Play IMT (7) - In Between Worlds
at Intermediatheque
Media: Performance Art
(2017-11-24 - 2017-12-03)

This seventh installment of the Play IMT series reconsiders the series’ basic concept of experimenting with theater and museums, developing a theatrical performance throughout the Intermediatheque, with “the in-between” (that is, what appears between the theatrical and museum worlds) as its key theme. By actively integrating the Intermediatheque collection and activities as well as people who gather there within the process of theatrical creation, the museum consistently explores what kind of theatrical expression can be crystallized within a museum space. In this performance, the theatrical experimentation within a museum context will gather the Intermediatheque’s space and exhibits, as well as original music and storylines, installations, props, costumes and actors. Therefore, actors are both neutral beings - among the aforementioned theatrical elements - and special entities - mediating and connecting all these elements. Members of the audience are also essential elements of the performance, in that they contribute to give form to various new images emanating throughout the play. As the performance grows organically, members of the audience get gradually involved, thus nourishing the play. This event aims to be participatory, with all the people present contributing to create a new world. Performers: Hiroshi Fujimori, Norihisa Honke, Kim Hyeryong, Inori Imamura, Mai Sasaki, Chikako Shibasaki, Yoshiki Shibata, Mirano Suzuki, Mana Takenouchi, Shinji Tozawa, Chie Yoshida Dates: Nov. 24 (Fri) 18:30-; Nov. 25 (Sat) 14:00-, 17:00-; Nov. 26 (Sun) 14:00-, Dec. 1 (Fri) 18:30-: Dec. 2 (Sat) 14:00-, 17:00-; Dec. 3 (Sun) 14:00-.

(2017-11-23 - 2017-12-27)

Denmark is the Northern European country that produced Andersen’s fairy tales, Lego, and other items well-known even in Japan. Approximately 5.7 million people live in this small country, which is about the size of Kyushu and known as the happiest country in the world. Denmark is also a design powerhouse that continues to turn out great numbers of design masters, even within the Northern European design boom of recent years. In particular, in the so called mid-Century period following World War II - the golden age in the history of design - Danish designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner and Finn Juhl produced a large number of outstanding items. These objects’ simple beauty, combined with high quality unpinned by functionality and technological strength, has been a major characteristic of Danish design up to the present day. They reveal Denmark’s approach as a welfare state, an approach that advocates everyone having a good quality, comfortable home. Drawing on academic cooperation from Denmark’s Designmuseum Danmark, this exhibition focuses on the appeal of Danish design by presenting furniture, tableware, light fittings, daily necessities and other items from the latter half of the 19th Century, through the mid-Century period to the present day, under one roof.

Sèvres: 300 Creative Years Porcelain for the French Court
at Suntory Museum of Art
Media: Ceramics - Workshops - Talks
(2017-11-22 - 2018-01-28)

In 2010, the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres and the Musée national de Céramique-Sèvres were integrated to establish a new organization under the name Sèvres, Cité de la céramique. This exhibition is the first in Japan to introduce the manufacture of Sèvres porcelain throughout its 300-year history, showcasing masterpieces and prized items from the Sèvres, Cité de la céramique collection; the last exhibition presenting pieces from the Musée national de Céramique-Sèvres collection was held in Japan 20 years ago. In 1740, the Soft-paste porcelain factory that was initially set up in Vincennes at the eastern edge of Paris was relocated to Sèvres in the west of the city with the support of King Louis XV of France (1710-74), and here expanded to become a royal producer of porcelain. Court painters and sculptors devised sophisticated shapes and patterns one after another. These were then realized in the delicate medium known as porcelain by technicians with exceptional abilities. The collaborative efforts of these creators produced elegant Sèvres porcelain works that soon caught the eye of royalty and aristocrats both inside and outside France. Since then, the Sèvres porcelain factory has continued to reign as one of the leading manufacturers of supreme European porcelain. This exhibition comprised of four sections gives an overview of Sèvres porcelain in context of the 18th century, the 19th century, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, and from the 1960s to the present, bringing an unprecedented amount of key works from each of these golden periods to Japan. The first non-French artist that Sèvres collaborated with was, rather surprisingly, Japanese sculptor Ichiga Numata (1873-1954), while to this day Sèvres continues to collaborate with famous artists and designers from Japan. Discover the creative exchange between Sèvres and Japan through works on show here in this exhibition that allows you to enjoy the finest porcelain produced through the ages.
