The festival ends with the announcement of various awards, including “Audience Award”, which is given to the exhibitor who receives the most votes from visitors, as well as “Grand Prize”, “Semi-Grand Prize”, and judges’ awards, selected by a jury of leading figures in the creative industries.

Document 토모토시(tomotosi)

아이러니한 사회에서 “이방인” -The stranger- 을 사랑하는 방법. 

저의 서울에서의 첫 개인전입니다.
과거의 비디오 설치작품과 새로운 퍼포먼스를 선보입니다.

 마스크, 새로운 성차별주의, 죽은 사람을 되살리는 향 냄새, 비무장지대(DMZ)… 제가 당신에게 제시하는 모든 것은,
이방인을 사랑하기 위한 방법입니다.

 사람들은 가끔 이방인을 두려워하고, “그들은 우리와 같은 사람이 아니야.” 라고 말합니다. 이방인을 받아들이는 것은
어렵지만, 모든 문제는 다른 사람들과 함께 해결해야만 합니다.

 저의 해답은, 외국인으로서, 여행자로서, 그리고 친구로서, 그들과 함께 외치는 것입니다. 동시에 이 모든 관계를, 같은
가치로써 동등하게 대하는 것은 매우 중요한 일입니다.

 먼저, 소수파를 배제하는 사회의 가면을 만드는 방법을 알고, 얼굴, 몸, 행동을 에일리언alien-외지인으로서 바꾸어
움직이게 합니다. 저는 언제나 에일리언alien -이질적인 사람의 편에 서 있습니다. 저의 표현에는 아이러니컬한 면이
있습니다.  저처럼 사회의 모순적인 부분을 미워하고 두려워하는 것뿐만이 아니라, 그 점에 끊임없이 매료되어 이끌린다면, 저의
예술작품은 당신을 위한 것입니다.

 전 거리를 사랑하는 방법을 당신에게 제시합니다. 전 외치며, 그들을 위해 하늘 아래 지면을 걸어갑니다.

 이것이 저의 해답입니다.

How to love the stranger in the ironical society.

This is my first solo exhibition in Seoul.
I will show you the old video installation works and new performance.

The mask, the new sexism, the back to life perfume, the DMZ…, everything I will show you is how to love the stranger.
People are often afraid of strangers, they say “It is not one of us. ”, then accepting the stranger is hard, though all problem have to solve with other people. My answer is, to cry with them as the alien, as the tourist and as the friend. To treat those relationships as the same value at the same time is very important. First, I will know how to make the mask of the society which eliminate the minority, then I  will change my face, body, behavior as an alien, and also move it. I am in the alien side always. There is a touch of irony in mine. If you’re as terrified of an irony of fate as I am but also endlessly fascinated by it, then my art works is for you. 

I will show you how to love the town. I cry and walk on the lands, under heavens for them. This is my answer.

皮肉な社会で見知らぬ人(The stranger)を愛する方法。

マスク、新しいセクシズム、死者を蘇らせるお香、DMZ …、私があなたに示すすべては、見知らぬ人を愛する方法です。人々はしばしば見知らぬ人を恐れている、彼らは言う 「それは私たちの仲間ではない」。見知らぬ人を受け入れるのは難しいですが、すべての問題は他の人と一緒に解決しなければなりません。私の答えは、外国人として、旅行者として、そして友人として、彼らと一緒に叫ぶことです。同時に、これらの関係を同じ価値として扱うことは非常に重要です。まず、少数派を排除する社会の仮面を作る方法を知り、顔、体、行動をエイリアンとして変え、それを動かす。私は常にエイリアンの側にいる。私の表現には皮肉のように感じさせる面があります。私のように社会の皮肉を憎み恐れているだけでなく、それに絶え間なく魅了されているのなら、私の芸術作品はあなたのためのものです。

 “Mask”, to protect from germs and to hide the appearance. This is a photographic work collaborated with the model from 2009.I hear “What you hate in your face?” “How do you want to become?” to the model and I create a mask while listening to their favorite color and material.It is not a Selfie but a SELFIED.
I am interested on how to create a better public image.

performance document by IIJIMA Motoharu

중세 화가 안톤 라파엘 멘구스(Anton Raphael Mengs)가 그린 「제우스와 나르키소스」를 주제로 「B.L(Boys Love)의 세계에 빠져들어 가는 여성의 모습」 그 자체를 새로운 성의 존재 방식으로 표현했다. 「나르키소스=수선화 그 자체」에 몸으로 가까워지려고 하는 것을 표현한 퍼포먼스다.

This work takes as its theme “Zeus and Narcissus,” as commonly painted by medieval artists, while capturing the “figure of the woman drowning in the world of boys’ love” through the perspective of a new gender. Depicting Narcissus as a narcissus flower (commonly known as a daffodil), the performer depicts the act of attempting to draw nearer through the use of the body.

中世の画家アントン・ラファエル・メングス(Anton Raphael Mengs)の描いた「ゼウスとナルキッソス」をテーマに、「ボーイズラブの世界に溺れて行く女性の姿」そのものを、新しい性のあり方として捉えた。「ナルキッソス=水仙の花そのもの」に、身体によって近づこうとすることを表現したパフォーマンス。

비디오 설치 작품 「한곤코(反魂香, HAN-GON-KO)」는 고전 만담 「한곤코(反魂香, HAN-GON-KO)」를 주제로 두 차례에 걸쳐 발표되었다. 사이호지(西方寺)라고 하는 절은 에도 시대에 친척이 없는 유녀들을 이름이 없는 채로 장사지내는 무덤으로 알려졌으며, 만담이나 가부키로 유명한 인기 있는 유녀 「다카오(高尾) 2대손」의 무덤이 안치되어 있다. 본 작품은 부부의 인연을 맺었지만, 센다이의 번주(藩主, 한슈) 다테츠나무네(伊藤綱宗)에 의해 사이가 갈라진 다카오(高尾)와 도테츠(道哲)의 역할을 킨토(金藤)와 우메다(梅田)가 연기하는 구조다. 한곤코(反魂香, HAN-GON-KO)는 죽은 사람을 소생시키는 「향」으로, 다카오는 「향」이 타오르는 동안에만 소생한다.
The video installation “Hangonkoh,” twice expresses the theme of “hangonkoh” from classical “rakugo” (a traditional Japanese form of performance, wherein a lone actor tells a story). The temple known as Saihouji is known as the burial place for courtesans in the Edo era who died without family or renown, and it is there that the remains of “Nidaime Takao,” a courtesan who became famous and popular through “rakugo” and “kabuki” (a traditional Japanese theater form), are enshrined. This work depicts Kinto and Umeda portraying Takao and Doutetsu, who have been torn apart by Tsunamune Date, lord of Sendai, after exchanging marital vows. “Hangonkoh” is an “incense,” which, when burned, brings Takao back to life.

작은 저항에 대해서. 

도쿄의 코리안 스트리트(한인타운) 에서, 혐한 데모가 일어났던 겨울의 새벽, 저도 1인 시위를 하기로 결심했습니다.

그 거리의 이름은, 「신오쿠보 新大久保」 입니다.

저는 빨대에 작은 하얀 플랜카드를 붙이고, 비눗방울을 불며, 「뒤로 걷기」 를 했습니다. 맨발로, 그 데모 현장이었던 거리를
걸었습니다.  「뒤로 걷기」 이기 때문에, 사람들과 사물에 부딪치지 않기 위해서 친구들이 “왼쪽이야, 오른쪽이야…” 라고
알려주었고, 그 목소리를 따라 계속 나아갔습니다.  좌파・우파 라는 용어는 일본에서도 정치적인 의미를 갖습니다.

 또, 「부메랑」에선 ‘자신이 발설한 비판과 욕설이, 그대로 자신에게 되돌아오는 현상’을 나타내는 일본의 인터넷 언어입니다.

 목소리가 되지 않는 목소리가, 비눗방울과 같이 사라져가는 모습과, 타인의 목소리를 의심해나가며, 일단은 믿고 나아간다는 이야기의 작품입니다.

( 번역: 김지영 翻訳:金智暎 )     About the small against.
In the morning during the winter season, some Japanese who do not like Koreans did a demonstration.
Then, I did a solo demonstration that I went back be barefoot and my friend said “Go straight, go left, right…”
And we had a little plastic-card, a bubble came from that.
The town name is “Shin-Okubo” that is Korean street in Japan.

I am studying prostitutes in the 1800s in Japan.
And made the performance about it.
This theme is going back to real pure land.

・Probably, In the root of a prostitute has a perverted feeling that “It can not be beautiful if it does not get dirty?”
・My work and love to think into the poor prince ‘s spirit.
・The reason for having a river is to spread water to Edo. To “reversely flow” the river in a video gimmick means that the prostitute who lost herself was released from slavery to Edo and headed for Pure Land in a new sense.




  • 遊女の根底には「汚れないと美しくなれない」という倒錯した思いがあるのではないか。
  • かわいそうな遊女の霊に思い入れる私の業と愛。
  • 人口河川をひいた理由は江戸に水を行き渡らせる為。その川を、映像ギミック的に「逆流」するということは、身投げした遊女が、江戸への隷属から解放され、新たなる意味で浄土へと向かうということ。
