We invited artists, Kaori Tazoe and Gen Kurihara to our one day residence to cerebrate the opening of Voin Pahoin. The artworks turned our usual home into a space with comfortable tension. Having about 50 people over at our apartment was such a lively, exciting experience. We all felt good vibes.

田添かおり Kaori Tazoe
May 2007_f0148545_1722054.jpgVPでは:日本未公開の新作シリーズ«explosion»を発表。ニューヨークの住宅街で静かに爆発が起こる映像作品と、爆発シーンが革ハギレに型押しされた作品からなる本シリーズは、2006年NYのLocation Oneにて制作された。消費社会におけるメディアの力と経済問題の複雑な関係がシンプルに表れる。その他、現地での制作・生活やACCの助成について、裏事情も含めたトークを開催。

At VP: Tazoe introduced her latest body of work "explosion." It is a series of works composed of two elements: an video work where scenes of explosions bought through the internet are inserted into usual New York city scape, and randomly shaped small pieces of leather that are also bought through the internet. This time, the scenes of explosions are pushed onto the surface. This particular body of work was completed during Tazoe's residence at Location One, New York in 2006. It presents the complexity of media power and economical problems that we face in this society of consumerism. Tazoe also gave a report on her residency at Location One supported by ACC grant, backstage details included.

栗原 元 Gen Kurihara
May 2007_f0148545_17315459.jpgVPでは:«Tiny Muver»シリーズより«ロボ»«ジョージ»、また絵画作品を2点展示。てのひらに収まるサイズ、立体要素を持ちながらも壁面展示されるのが共通の要素。«Tiny Muver»シリーズは、立方体の上で、ロボットとお猿のジョージが崩れ落ちては立ち上がるという運動を繰り返す。小さなステージの出来事は、ズームイン・アウトで展開する栗原の4コマ漫画のテンポを彷彿させる。

At VP: Kurihara presented "robo," "goerge" from the "Tiny Muver" series, and two small size paintings. All of them are commonly in the size, which comfortably fits in two hands, and meant to be installed on the wall regardless of its sculptural elements. For example, "Tiny Muver" series is made of a cube box, on which a small toy robot or monkey stands. The toy is timed to collapse and stand back up in an regular interval. The work appears as a small stage coming off of the wall, and it resembles the tempo of the artist's 4 frame comic, in which the story begins and ends as the viewpoint simply zooms in and out of the scene portrayed.

What's Voin Pahoin?
What\'s Voin Pahoin?_f0148545_16431741.jpg


Voin Pahoin is an art collective based in Yokohama, Japan.
With an aim to facilitate / create networks of creative individuals, we propose various situations where people meet casually.
Voin Pahoin is comprised of several members. We do not try to have one definite voice as a collective, but to remain sensitive to the flow of ideas and utilize each other's ideas and skills to develop projects.

The monthly open house is the core project of Voin Pahoin. Every time we invite an artist to our "one-day residence," and let him/her occupy our apartment, which results in an 8-hour long exhibition. We, the hosts, organize a home party for everyone whom we met through various occasions. Now our e-mail invitation is sent to about 300 people listed on our mailing list. At the party, we present the result of the one-day residence, host a casual talk by the artist in residence, and serve foods & drinks to create a relaxing environment to facilitate exchanges of ideas. The apartment functions as our home except the opening day of Voin Pahoin on Fourth Saturday of every month.
