Mori Art Museum "Listening to the sound of the earth turning: Wellbeing after the pandemic"
Since 2020, our lives and state of mind have changed dramatically as an invisible virus has robbed us of our daily lives. Under these circumstances, various artistic expressions, including contemporary art, resonate with unprecedented urgency. In this exhibition, we will consider how to live in the new era after the pandemic and what "well-being" is, which is healthy both mentally and physically, through the diverse perspectives embedded in contemporary art. Works on themes that are connected to life and existence, such as nature and human beings, individuals and society, families, repetitive everyday life, the spiritual world, life and death, etc., encourage consideration of "living well."
In addition, this exhibition emphasizes the experience of a realistic space unique to museums, and introduces the works of 16 artists from Japan and overseas, such as installations, sculptures, videos, photographs, and paintings. Sharpening your five senses and facing art while experiencing the materials and scale of your work will be an opportunity to think about well-being for yourself, that is, "living well," which is not something that is given to you by others or society. The title of this exhibition, "Listening to the Sound of the Earth Turning," is taken from Yoko Ono's Instruction Art (*1). It invites consciousness into a grand universe, imagines that we are only part of that activity, and leads us to new thoughts. In the post-pandemic world, when we are trying to fundamentally re-examine human life, isn't it this kind of imagination that shows us the possibilities of the future?
*1 A form of conceptual art in which instructions from the artist or the description itself are used as works.
