Revival of the Art
We sometimes lose ‘something’ in our everyday lives.
Our ‘ordinary’ gets separated from the everyday all of a sudden.
After the separation we are left with a sense of loss and a lot of ‘questions’.
What was our ‘ordinary?’ Starting to doubt our values of our everyday lives.
Even in deep grief and ‘questions’
We tend to find and transform our lives completely.
Helping one another, building something together,
“That’s a great opportunity” This is another way of looking at being in trouble. Achieving something that you would never thought of doing.
They are the ‘answers’ to our questions; they are the resources to transform ourselves into new beings.
Each project by Jun Kitazawa Office Yakumo deliberately throws ‘questions’ to the viewer and blurs our ideas of ‘ordinary lives’.
Hospitals, Port cities, Child Welfare Residential Facilities, Shopping arcades, Families, Schools, Emergency Residences and Residential Complexes...
We have been proposing art projects and been working alongside a variety of communities.
We get a lot of creative responses and reactions to our actions.
Those responses start to pile up
And start to create ‘Creative Communities’ all over Japan.
Living creatively, Breaking the limits and restrictions of ‘ordinary’.
Growing up in the ‘Creative Communities’ and taking a good care of them...
We will all be able to become new versions of ourselves everyday throughout our life journey.
There is an example.
Japan has a lot of small festivals all year around which have been inherited from generation to generation.
These are our ‘artistic visions and actions’.
The festivals used to be the vital part of the Japanese people’s everyday lives, But today, we don’t get to see most of them anymore.
Through the Jun Kitazawa art projects, we will be able to regain our forgotten tradition and the ‘artistic visions’ of everyday lives.
The return of ‘our art’. The future is near.
