"Odawara Culture Foundation Enoura Observatory" is an art space designed by contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. The site overlooking the sea is laid out with buildings using the latest technology, historic buildings, stones with various stories, etc., creating an attractive space that is hard to explain.

"Tino Segal @ Enoura Observatory yet untitled" started here on October 4, 2019. We have held performances of traditional performing arts, etc., but this is the first project for contemporary art since it opened in October 2017.
Born in London in 1976, Tino Segal is currently based in Berlin. The other day, he choreographed at the Paris Opera Ballet, but is basically known for his happening work that does not leave any records. In other words, the work can be kept only in the memory of the visitor who witnessed it.
"My work is in 4 dimensions (* editorial note: 3 dimensions + time axis) . There is no problem with being recorded in text.I don't want them to be photographed or filmed and left as a two-dimensional work." (Saegal)
After completing the reception at the waiting building, aim for a place where Mr. Segal's "live work" will take place, passing through the "Meigetsu Gate" that was built as the main gate of the Rinzai sect Kenchoji School, Meigetsu-in during the Muromachi period.
Perhaps because it was after a typhoon passed a long distance on this day, the blue sea and sky spread like midsummer, but the wind was strong and the trees around were loud and loud.
Since the "live work" is performed outdoors, the audience will be affected by the temperature, sky and color of the sea. Does it mean that nature also experiences as part of art?
The "live work" will be held at the "field seat" in the future. There, several "interpreters" used their voices and bodies to create a unique space in harmony with the sounds of the wind and the sounds of birds.
"In Japan, there is a small difference between nature and culture (created by humans), and I am interested in the connection between the traditional world and the modern age. In particular, this place can be expressed while feeling the sea and nature. It's possible for me to announce live work here,” says Mr. Segal.
"Live work" shooting Since the shadow is completely impossible, I took a picture of the sea, the sky, and the trees that wrap the field seats. You can feel the "artistic time" where the timing of the beginning and end are left to each other like the wind across the sea, because there is no fixed time for each movement.
By the way, you can appreciate the inside of the building as usual during the project, and the admission fee is the same as usual. I would like to spend a lot of time visiting the latest constructions such as the optical glass stage and the 100m gallery of summer solstice, historical buildings, and Sugimoto's art works.
We interviewed Mr. Sugimoto, the founder of the foundation.
“This is the first time for a contemporary art project, but it was held with the enthusiasm of Mr. Tino. Enoura Observatory is one of the founding aims to enjoy art in the nature of Odawara. Today When I saw the live work, I had a great sense of unity with the sound of the wind and the sound of birds, so I felt once again that it was compatible with Mr. Tino's view of the world.
This event has ended.
