CONCEPT

新潟県の文学をテーマとした作品「熱際」(鈴木牧之著「北越雪譜」から引用)。

雪を背景に描かれる情熱的な恋愛小説、雪と共に生きる人々の暮らし、心情を描く随筆等から雪国の人々の生きるエネルギーを強く感じました。文学から受けた印象から、寒くモノトーンな雪景色を背景に色鮮やかな極彩色の森を作りました。9冊の本を空間に配置し、本にはエリアごとに「熱際」「雪」「自然」「春」と4つの香りを付けました。文学と香りと色彩で冬の越後の風景、雪、生活を、五感で感じる作品です。

I created NESSAI as an installation piece inspired by literature from the Edo period until now from Niigata, which is one of the places with the most snowfall in the world.

The group show exhibition was held during the winter season, so the concept of the exhibition was snow. I felt human energy and passion from the literature of Niigata. I wanted to express the contrast of the human beings' energy with snowy views which are dark, heavy and monotone. The colorful forest expresses the power of life, love for their hometown and longing for spring. I selected 9 novels and put fragrances on them. I divided the area into 4 parts according to the novels' concepts - love stories, life, Zen and spring - and created 4 fragrances, one for each area. The title NESSAI comes from a best selling novel from the Edo period, and it means the heat of a human being's inner organs.
