My site-specific project "Art & Breakfast" is a combination of art installations and participatory events of breakfast with visitors whilst staying in an art space. Living in each town, I develop ideas, collect materials and fill up space with numerous improvised installations through fieldworks. The title that hints at B&B (Bed & Breakfast). Breakfast meetings are hosted for visitors in the exhibition space.

This art project has been taking place around the world since 2006 in Stockholm Tokyo, Berlin, Melbourne(AU), Vienna, Belfast(UK), Nagoya(JP) ,Wiesbaden(DE), Folkestone(UK) and Gran Canaria(ES).

The ideas I come up with on journeys are transformed into diverse presentations to explore common understandings of human life beyond cultural differences and any border. Interpersonal communication with local people gives me important questions concerning the society, culture, history and various issues. Responding to those subjects, every day I create a series of improvised installations using materials such as furniture, toys, interior and junk I find around town. My critical point of view towards various issues such as daily life, societies, cultures, politics, and histories are reflected into installations. Each item is telling narratives together with my inspirational phrases and then they illustrate specific themes I developed while staying. The objects in the space will allow visitors to imagine a story for each item like picture book illustrations. The project always takes place breakfast meetings with visitors in the space.

Breakfast particularly reflects our culture and tradition. The aim of this event is to get people closer to art through intimate personal connections using breakfast as a catalyst. Meeting and getting to know people over breakfast is an intimate experience.

Expanding from previous projects, I launched "Art & Breakfast Day" in 2014. Each art studio and space all over the world individually held breakfast events on the same day. Artists and visitors share breakfast as well as art presentations and practices at various art scenes around the world beyond any borders. That brings fresh communication /connections that are not like usual art exhibitions, and prompt artists to do an experimental practice freely.

Artists and art scenes are free from any confrontation, discrimination, and conflicts. Art is a place in which people are able to be involved, not only looking at artworks. This exhibition framework makes for an intimate exchange, whereby atmosphere, open-ended possible narratives and a kind of everyday mise-en-scene are built and shared between artist and visitors.

“Art & Breakfast” is an ongoing site-specific project that I produce, whilst staying in an art space.
My awareness gained from traveling the world is transformed into diverse presentations to explore common understanding of human life beyond cultural differences and any border.

The project has previously taken place since 2006 in Stockholm, Tokyo, Berlin, Melbourne, Vienna and
Belfast.
I come up with ideas on journeys where I encounter people’s lives in different countries and histories.
Interpersonal communication with local visitors gives me important awareness concerning the society, histories and various issues. Responding to that awareness, everyday I create a series of improvised small installations using materials I found around town. The fieldworks reflect various social issues in our life and environment through my point of view. And then a spatial installation and ordinary objects will start speaking narrative stories. The objects I arrange in the space will exist like picture book illustrations and allow visitors to imagine a story for each item.
The project begins each morning over breakfast together with visitors in the space.
I make local breakfast for visitors. What we eat for breakfast, particularly reflects our culture and tradition.
The aim of this event is to get people closer to art through intimate personal connections using breakfast as a catalyst. Meeting and getting to know people over breakfast is an intimate experience.
My artworks, thus, try to share with people awkward and endearing emotions that can be familiar for anyone through the everyday details of life. This presentation framework makes for an intimate exchange, whereby atmosphere, open-ended possible narratives and a kind of everyday mise-en-scene are built and shared between artist and visitor.

Artists and art scenes should be free from any confrontation, discrimination and confliction.
Art should be not only art pieces to look at, but also the place in which people are involved in our society.
I believe this project must help to realize what the presence of art will bring our life and society.

I believe this project must help to realize what the presence of art will bring our life and society.私の作品は、文化的差異やあらゆる境界を越え人々の人生にとって共感できる価値観は何かを探る
私は、誰の人生にも寄り添っている、不器用で愛しい、日常の細々とした感情や記憶を、作品において人々と共有しようとしています。異国の地に生きる人々や、過去に生きていた人々、今を生きるわたし自身の日常から得られるアイデアを物語に見立て、写真、映像、音楽、言葉、古着や古道具など、さまざまなモノたちを組み合わせたインスタレーションを「人が足を踏み入れられるドラマ」と称しています。日常の舞台のような、親密な空気感やエンディングの無い物語のフレームワークを鑑賞者の間に築きながら、文化的差異やあらゆる境界を越え、わたしたちの人生にとって共感できる普遍的な価値観は何かを探る為に、旅をしながら生まれる気付きを映し出そうとしています。

 
私の滞在制作プロジェクトである「Art & Breakfast」は2006 年以降、これまでにストックホルム、東京、ベルリン、メルボルン、ウィーン、ベルファストで開催されてきました。

このプロジェクトは、私がその国の朝食を作り、人々と朝食をともにする行為から始まります。朝食に何を食べるかは、文化と伝統を顕著に反映しています。この朝食のテーブルの目的は、朝食という親密な交流の場をきっかけに、アートが人々にとってより身近なものとなることを目指しています
朝食で人と出会うことはとても親密な経験です。地域の人々との個人的なコミュニケーションは、社会、歴史、様々な問題などについて重要な気付きを私にもたらします。その気づきをもとに、私はその土地で見つけた材料で小さなインスタレーションを日々、作り続けて行きます。そしてそのフィールドワークは、空間インスタレーションへと変化し、日々のモノたちは物語を
語り始めるのです。それらのインスタレーションは、私の視点を通して、生活や歴史の中で生まれる様々な社会問題を映し出していきます。空間に配置されるモノたちは、絵本の挿絵のように存在し、それらを観る人々は、それぞれに物語を想像することができます。


これまでのプロジェクトから発展させ、2014年より新たに、「Art & Breakfast Day」を立ち上げました。
http://www.artandbreakfast.info/
世界中のアートの場所が同じ日に、それぞれの朝食を開催します。
アーティストと来場者は世界のあらゆるボーダーを超え、様々なアートの現場で、アートのプレゼンテ
ーションや、プラクティスを共有します。
それは、通常の展示とは違う、新鮮なコミュニケーションと繋がりをもたらし、アーティストの実験的なプラクティスを後押しすることを目的としています。
アーティストとアートシーンはいかなる対立や差別、衝突からも自由であるべきであり、アートは作品を観るだけでなく、人々が関われる場所なのです。
