To go out in the field, to feel once more the connection between the self and nature.

More than 100 years ago at the dawn of modernization in China, an outing in spring was depicted by Ye Shengtao in his novella 春游 (1919) to symbolize the moment of liberation for a family woman, a woman who has lived within frame rules and traditions. With the chance of (re)connecting with nature, she finds vitality and dignity broader and stronger than the frame. She finds herself.

郊游/野遊び/An Outing will include works by three women artists who each have a distinct and direct relationship with nature and the body. This connection finds form and expression in works that explore sensitivity, sensuality and sexuality, using different mediums (watercolor, fabric, and media) as they represent of their own worlds, in which the spectator is invited to enter.

「郊遊」とは、野遊ぶこと。野に出て、⾃⼰と⾃然とのつながりを改めて感じること。解放すること、解放されること。

今から100年以上前、中国の近代化の黎明期に、葉聖陶が⼩説『春遊』(1919年)の中で描いた「春のお出かけ」は、ルールや伝統の枠の中で⽣きてきた家庭の⼥性が解放される瞬間を象徴する。彼⼥は、⾃然と(再び)つながる機会を得て、その枠よりも⼤きくて強い⽣命⼒と尊厳を⾒出すことが可能になった。彼⼥は⾃分⾃身を⾒つけた。

『郊遊/野遊び/An Outing』展では、自然との直接的で独特な関係を持つ3人の女性アーティストの作品を展示します。このつながりは、水彩画、布、メディアなどの媒体と、観客を招き入れる彼女たちの独自の世界の表現の両方において、感性、官能性、セクシュアリティを探求する作品の中で形を変えて表現されています。
