作戦会議|Yoshinori NIWA [投票できない選挙区へ投票しに行く]


日本の選挙制度は多くの場合、自身の住居を基に地域ごとに定められた立候補者へ投票する小選挙区ですが、この場合地域外の投票所へ出向くことはどんな意味があるでしょうか。論理的に考えて、門前払いされることは明らかですが、私たちが投票できない候補者とは何者でしょうか?
このようなアイデアを基に、参院選での撮影を予定しています。今回は、このアイデアを基に撮影する具体的な方法などを話し合う予定です。2時間弱の予定。

6.15(sat.)
open 18:00 start 19:30

Yoshinori NIWA
Yoshinori Niwa
Born 1982 Aichi Prefecture (Japan), based in Tokyo.
Graduated from Tama Art University’s Department of Moving Images and
Performing Arts. Niwa’s socially and historically interventionist works, on the street and in other public spaces, experiment with actions and propositions involving mainly impossibility and exchange. From such unproductive physical acts as transferring water with his mouth from a puddle in East Berlin to create a new puddle a short distance away in West Berlin, in 《Transferring Puddle A to Puddle B》 (2004), to putting himself in an unusual situation to undermine the reality of what we see and to expose the emptiness of systems that give an illusion of publicness, as when he walked in the opposite direction to people demonstrating against nuclear power generation after the Great East Japan Earthquake – 《Walk in the Opposite Direction of a Demonstration Parade》 (2011) – and 《Demonstration Proceeds from the Prime Minister’s Residence to the Summit of Mt. Fuji》 (2012), in which he extended a political act to a distant and unrelated spot more commonly associated with tourism. In recent years Niwa has taken an interest in the history of communism and moved on to projects that explore the nature of national history, like attempting to pick up and toss local communist party members in Romania, in 《Tossing Socialists in the Air in Romania》 (2010) and 《Searching for Vladimir Lenin in the Apartments of Moscow》 (2012), in which he searches the home an ordinary Russian family for images of Lenin years after the demise of the Soviet Union.
