Dérive feast / 漂流祝祭日

Hibiki Yamada (GAP M1 student) participates in the following exhibition.


New exhibition “Dérive feast” curated by waxogawa and Jingwen Li opens in the basement floor of Yokohama Civic Art Gallery.

The exhibition attempts to drift away from Tokyo where the centre of art scenes is located. Featuring young artists mostly, the exhibition proposes a possible feast days at Yokohama Civic Art Gallery, which is a public facility. In his book ‘A Movable feast’, Ernest Hemingway described the fast-changing challenges of literature arising from within the bustle of Paris. Paris as a rigid ground and the America as the birthplace of the White Cube… The vacillation between these two axes, as Hemingway mentioned, is mapped onto the Tokyo-Yokohama axes, among the collaboration with waxogawa and Li Jingwen.

we could leave Paris for a while (…) Maybe away from Paris I could write about Paris (…) “I remember everything. Sometimes he was right and sometimes you were right. I remember the lights and textures and the shapes you argued about.” (…) we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight. ーー E.Hemingway ‘A Moveable Feast’

横浜市民ギャラリー地下1階では、先天性両耳重度難聴という背景を持つキュレーター・waxogawa、 そして中国出身の作家/プロデューサー/研究者であ る李静文によるキュレーション展 「漂流祝祭日」が開催される。


しばらくパリを離れて別の場所で暮らすという手もある(…)パリを離れてもパリのことを書けるだろう、と私は思った。(…)「あなたたちが論じ合っていた光のことや、描写の肌理の細かさや粗さ、フォルムのこと、あたし、みんな覚えているわよ」(…)私たちはまだ若く、そこでは何一つ単純なものはなかったのである。たとえそれが貧困であれ、突然転がり込む金であれ、月の光であれ、善悪であれ、あるいは月光を浴びてかたわらに横たわっている女の息遣いであれ。 ――E. ヘミングウェイ『移動祝祭日』

COVEN – three jewellery artists of a new generation

Date/日付 25.03.2023 – 21.05.2023

Closed Dates/休館日 Mondays and Fridays

Venue Parkgata 21, 2317 Hamar, Norway

Participating Artists
Sayo Ota, Íris Elva Ólafsdóttir, and Kristine Ervik

Kristine Ervik, Iris Elva Olafsdottir and Sayo Ota, born in Norway, Iceland and Japan respectively, all studied metal and jewellery at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Together they mark a generational shift in Norwegian jewellery art by developing conceptual jewellery art. The exhibits comprise of temporary, transitory and eroding necklaces made from steel, seed, soap, silver, thread, enamel and Japanese lacquer. While using traditional techniques such as making chains from steel and silver, Japanese lacquering, and simple, nostalgic seeds of a string, they reject jewellery as functional objects. With this exhibition, Kunstbanken wishes to promote new arts and crafts curators and show parts of the extensive and varied repertoire by upcoming jewellery artists.
Curator: Olaf Tønnesland Hodne

Kristine Ervik、Iris Elva Olafsdottir、太田紗世は、それぞれノルウェー、アイスランド、日本で生まれ、オスロ国立芸術アカデミー、アーツアンドクラフト科のメタル&ジュエリーコースを卒業しています。 彼女たちの概念的なジュエリーアートを展開は、ノルウェーのジュエリーアートの世代交代の兆しを感じさせます。
新鋭の美術工芸のキュレーターや次世代のジュエリー アーティストによる広範で多様なレパートリーの一部を紹介する内容の展覧会をKunstbanken Center for Contemporary Artにて開催いたします。

The Aquarium / 水槽

Koki Fujinaka (GAP M2 student) will be performing a theatrical piece at the Bigakko graduation presentation.


“I like the atmosphere where the air stagnates, with high humidity. It feels soft, warm, blissful, and almost like dying. The pleasant smell of a futon. When thinking about delicate human relationships, I am always afraid of the way theater imposes various constraints on the audience and actors. Ordering to sit quietly in a chair, cutting off communication with the outside world. I used to think that was violent and feared it, but it seems that confronting each other face-to-face is not always the only correct way. We will perform a human relationship of tranquility and tension, bound in a closed space, based on the relationship between actors and the audience.”
Koki Fujinaka

Glitches in Love: A New Formula/ 愛のグリッチ : 新しい公式

Hongqiao Li as a designer and Mengke Guo as member of the curation from GAP students. We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition.

本展にGAPの学生が参加しています。(デザイン:Hongqiao Li、キュレーション:Mengke Guo)ぜひご高覧ください。


“Glitches in Love: A New Formula” will introduce 12 artists from Japan, England, China, Ireland, and Slovenia under the theme of a “New formula of Love”.
We are surrounded by countless forms of love today. When these loves take on new shapes in modern society, will they be embraced or treated as a glitch? In our modern society, those loves and lovers that problematize the inflexible geometries of love can be styled glitches; bugs in the system that society attempts to quash. We welcome those previously scorned by the rigidity of defined love, and radiate love universally. We will look at “glitches” in love that have been neglected by definition, such as queer and other forms of love related to gender identity, self-love, and virtual love, and consider “new formulas” for love in all worlds, including the virtual world as well as the physical world. By focusing on topics that have been placed outside the existing framework of love, and by comprehensively examining these topics, we will explore the challenges and possibilities for the perception of a new formula of love through a global perspective.

本展「Glitches in Love: A New Formula/愛のグリッチ:新しい公式」では、「愛の新しい公式」をテーマに日本、イギリス、中国、アイルランド、そしてスロベニアから12組のアーティストを紹介します。

[About Artist Talk]
How was the 30 days you spent working on “What I want to do at Tenjinyama” as “the residency period = performance period, filming the process of transformation of the work (water-soluble plastic sculpture) with a fixed-point camera,” “creating a sculpture using Sapporo soft stone,” and “researching Ainu people”?

Take your time and listen to what moved the artist’s eyes and heart. Chako Kato of Melbourne’s Slow Art Collective will be leading the dialogue. This event will be held on 3.11. We would like to make this a good time for the artists to pray for the future. Please join us.
