"Odawara Culture Foundation Enoura Observatory" is an art space designed by contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. The site overlooking the sea is lined with buildings and historic buildings that make full use of the latest technology and stones with various stories, creating an attractive space that is hard to explain.

"Tino Segal @ Enoura Observatory yet untitled" started here on October 4, 2019. It has held performances of traditional performing arts, etc., but this is the first project for contemporary art since it opened in October 2017.
Tino Segal was born in London in 1976 and 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 visitors who witnessed it.
"My work is in 4 dimensions (* editorial note: 3 dimensions + time axis) . There is no problem recording it in text, but it is a photograph.I don't want them to be filmed as a video or left as a two-dimensional work. "(Mr. Segal)
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 Kenchoji School, Meigetsu-in in the Muromachi period.
Perhaps because it was after a typhoon passed far in the distance, the blue sea and sky spread like midsummer, while the wind was strong and the trees around were loud and loud.
Since the "live work" is held 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, ”said Mr. Segal.
No shooting of "live work" is possibleSo, I took a picture of the sea, the sky, and the trees that wrap the field seats. There is no set time for each action, and can you feel the "artistic time" where the start and end timings are left to each other like the wind across the sea?
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 newest architecture such as the optical glass stage and the 100m gallery of the 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 in response to Mr. Tino's enthusiasm. 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 is compatible with Mr. Tino's view of the world.
