We held “Join Us to See Autumn Leaves -Kanpu-kai-” on Oct.15th at Sapporo Sculpture Garden. 17 participants from 8 countries and regions joined.
紅葉と青い空。観楓会にはもってこいのお天気に恵まれました。Autumn Leaves and beautiful blue sky! We were so happy the weather was great for the Kanpu-kai.
作品を見たり、触れたり、一緒に写真を撮ったりしながら紅葉を楽しみました。Colored leaves with artworks brought us smile. During the tour, we enjoyed them touching and taking pictures with as well as looking at those.
“What do you think that is?” (the title of this work is NATUHIKI)
“What do you see when you look into the art?” (the title of this work is Luette et Narines)
Look what we found! There were chestnuts and acorns on the ground. It’s definitely autumn, isn’t it?
There were many works that you can actually experience. One of those was “Phase” and the participants seemed having a lot of fun with it. You can enjoy it while you move around the work. When walking around looking at yourself in this stainless-steel sculpture, you would be attracted to the continuously-changing reflection of yourself and the view around you.
It was so cold this morning that we even had a news that it frosted and iced for the first time of this year. Despite of such a cold morning, it turned out to be a warm day that we may take off our jackets as walking around the Sculpture Garden. We also could see the beautiful autumn leaves.
We hope that the collaboration of the artworks with the nature elements attracted the participants, as well as seeing, touching, and experiencing the great artworks here. It would be our pleasure if they enjoyed the Kanpu-kai.
