In the realm beyond spectrum / スペクトルの彼方で

Sareena Sattapon ( PhD)

Human, space, and time are essential components in performative art pieces, intricately interconnecting with each other. Traditionally, in the process of creating performances, the artist retains control over all these elements. However, what would happen if the “”Human”” component were not performers but spectators? If “”observing”” equates to “”creating””, How can we control the uncontrolled? “”In the realm beyond spectrum”” is an attempt to connect the audience with artwork by creating a performative space comprising six channels of video mockumentary, a white cube room, and glass wall. The video draws inspiration from the life story of Sareena’s aunt, who resides in Thailand but is depicted within Japan’s context. Viewers can observe and listen from both “”inside”” and “”outside””, and as they become part of the artwork, their role transforms from observers to contributors. The seemingly endless relationships between individuals and spaces may help spectators to revisit the connections they possess.

本展「In the realm beyond spectrum」は、ホワイトキューブとガラスの壁、6チャンネルのモキュメンタリ―映像で構成されたパフォーマンス空間を立ち上げ、観客と作品を接続する試みを行います。映像は、タイに住むサッタポンの叔母の人生譚から着想を得ており、それを日本の文脈に置き換えて描かれています。鑑賞者は作品の「内」と「外」の双方から作品を見聞きし、作品の一部となることで、その立場は鑑賞者から作品の構成者へと変化します。個々人と空間の、一見すると終わりのない関係性は、鑑賞者自らが持つ繋がりを再訪する手がかりとなります。

Touching and Being Touched In a world teeming with tactile exchanges, from the warmth of a handshake to the comfort of an embrace, “Touching and Being Touched,” ventures into the less traversed terrains of human interaction. Mengke employs her art as a means to open up conversations about haphephobia—the profound discomfort or fear of touch, pushing against societal norms that often dismiss or overlook the discomfort associated with unwanted physical contact. Her artworks serve as a bridge, offering a profound, visual dialogue on the complexities of touch, consent, and personal boundaries. Each piece, whether through abstract forms, textured surfaces, or interactive installations, challenges us to confront our own perceptions of touch and the multifaceted nature of human connections and encourages us to consider the layers of meaning imbued in touch and to recognize the strength in setting and respecting boundaries. ——Harris Kayama

触れること‧触れられること 握手の温もりから抱擁の安心感まで、さまざまな「触れ合い」で溢れる世界において『触れること・触れられること』は、人間交流の中でなかなか語られることのない場所へと扉を開きます。梦可(ムオンコー)は彼女の芸術表現を通して、接触恐怖症についての対話の場を開き、望まない身体接触から触発される不快感をしばしば無視したり軽視したりする社会に問いを投げかけます。 彼女の作品は橋渡しとしての役割をもち、触れることの複雑さや同意、個人的な境界線について深い視覚的対話を立ち上げます。抽象的な形や質感のある表面、またインタラクティブなインスタレーションを通じて、各作品は私たち自身がもつ「触れる」ことへの認識を明かにし、人間の繋がりの多面的な性質を提示することで「触れる」に込められた意味の違いを考慮すること、境界線を設定すること、そして尊重することの重要性を促します。 ——佳山哲巳 日本語:柏原瑚子

The branching room | 枝分かれの部屋

日時 : 2024年 2月23日(金)祝日 夜6時 -11時
場所 :   デカメロン 〒160-0021 東京都新宿区歌舞伎町1丁目12−4
入場料 :  2000円+1drink order
企画・制作・協力:Performance Art Platform ハムたまごサンドイッチ / デカメロン

At any time during the event at least one of the artists will be performing, so please feel free to drop by when convenient. The venue is a two-story building, with the drinking bar on the first floor and the performance space / gallery on the second floor. The performances that will take place during the event on the second floor are often interactive, so rather than sitting quietly and watching, we recommend that you join in if you feel comfortable. You can also of course spend time going back and forth to the bar on the first floor.
You are free to exit and re-enter the venue during the event.

The branching room

Our choices cause the future to branch out. A person’s presence branches and multiplies through shadows, reflections, photographs and digital means. Memory is another kind of branching, allowing for the superposition of different times and events. The method of branching, then, transforms the original in various ways, creating the basis for new interpretations, relationships, and opportunities.
 Most of the ‘choices’ in our lives might be made unconsciously. Imagine a dog who suddenly appears, snags a piece of bread from your hand, and walks away while you are debating whether to choose ham or egg as an ingredient for your sandwich. We are surprisingly blind to what is around us, just as we are oblivious to the gaze of a hungry dog. In the Branching Room, we will attempt to once more meet the gaze of the dog and once more be deprived of bread.
 Nameless relationships are of greater interest than named ones. How are relationships between people built, changed, broken, and rebuilt again in the course of everyday life? In the Branching Room, performers and audience will interact with elements of sound, light, photography, and games to explore the consequences of choices and the simultaneity of past, present, and future.
 Artist and performance art platform Ham Tamago Sandwich member Stephan E. Perez, is about to leave Japan, where he has spent the last 8 years. In preparation for his departure, he brings together people involved in his early and recent performance work at the Kabukicho art space “Decameron”. They will be joined by the audience, including you, for reflection and discussion.


Dates:December 16, 2023 15:00-18:00
日時:2023年12月16日 15:00-18:00
Venue:NTU Music Centre, Dance Studio, Nottingham, UK

In the workshop, we will practice symbiosis among our beings through touch and vocalizations. We will treat space and time as non-linear, registering and relating with (other) bodies, and work to find our unique language. The workshop involves contact/touch and vocalization.
