We invited an artist, Maiko Sugano for the 9th installment of Voin Pahoin. The theme of her one-day VP residence was "ingredients of today's house rather than furniture." She incorporated everyday objects into her artwork, by magically turning daily utensils into objects exclusively for viewing. Our banal life suddenly became life filled with surprises. We hope Maiko and everyone enjoyed our homemade sushi roll and miso soup.

At VP: With a theme of“ingredients of today's house rather than furniture," Maiko incorporated everyday objects into her artwork. Futons were flying in the air, new shelves were installed only to put shadow and dust, and clouds of black wool was hung in the balcony. There were also an ice mountain in the bath tab, water falls in the sink and little mountains on the toilet tank, reminding us of the Japanese gardening principle, Shakkei. She also gave a short talk about the domestic art project Yomoyama House, which she runs with 2 other artists.


Director/Artist. Born in Tokyo in 1974. Maiko Sugano graduated from School of Fine Arts at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music in 1997, and in the same year she received the outstanding performance award at Parco ARBUNART 6. After working for a design farm, she embarked on around-the-globe trip, and ended up living in San Francisco in 2000. She was a grantee of San Francisco Foundation's scholarship and California College of Arts. She completed her MFA at California College of Arts in 2004. Since 2006 she has been working as a teaching assistant at the department of Intermedia Art at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music. She is currently researching art and communication in a domestic environment, while continuing her artwork. For Maiko's Yomoyama Project, click here!

Report on "Memory of a Pot"

special screening by Daisuke Mizushima


12月の定例ヴォイン・パホインで報告を行いました。守谷からはARCUSの中村さん、今期のレジデンス・アーティストDonald Abaddさん、野菜とお米をご提供頂いた飯田さんもかけつけて下さいました。


At the year-end wrap up Voin Pahoin, we reported our on-going project at ARCUS studios in Ibaraki, titled "Memory of a Pot." This project began in September 2007 when we found a rusty pot in the storage of a disused elementary school building, which is today home of ARCUS and Moriya Lifelong Learning Center. We decided to cook rice in this pot. We cleaned the pot, went to meet the locals to learn the history of the pot, researched how to cook rice in a big pot, and received donation of locally grown rice and vegetables. Finally on November 10, we were able share the rice with many warm-hearted people.

For the presentation at Voin Pahoin, we had special guests: Mr. Nakamura from ARCUS, Donald Abadd, artist in residence at ARCUS, Ms. Iida who kindly gave us delicious vegetables and rice.

We invited an artist, Masanobu Nishino for the one-day residence this month. We couldn't set up a time for a site visit with him, so we gave him a key to our apartment. One evening, we found a note in a Mishima book, letting us know that he had been here. But we had no idea about his installation plans until the day of VP. To cerebrate Nishino's residence, Jun Honma (artist), and Taro Amano (curator) kindly made delicious Chinese dumplings.
