Sound installation / Live | [0℃]
Plan: Hideki UMEZAWA, Yoichi KAMIMURA
Design: Tadao KAWAMURA

We are collecting the sounds of ice and the documents related to them from artists all over the world, as we believe that the ice might solidify with the conditions of the lands and their memories. In this exhibition, we create an installation work and do a sound performance based on those collected sounds and documents, and attempt to fill the space of blanClass with the huge memories of the world captive in the ice.
