Exhibition：Beyond the tangible
Duration：2016 June 3rd – July 3rd
Cooperation： NISHIEDA FOUNDATION, Kyoto Seika University
Laughter has human nature and social role, and many philosophers have defined humans as “animals who know to laugh” since ancient times. Henri Bergson writes that laughter can be assumed to be two conflicting, stiff feelings in one human being. Focusing on the group nature and social role that laughter has, we reproduced the laughter phenomena and gestures we witnessed in various places in everyday life with voice and gestures.
“My QR code”
The QR code drawn on the body connects to the SNS Line account “laughing”. There, you can see the video taken on a daily basis with a theme of laughter.
In the video work of the exhibition, OLTA looks for the nature and phenomena of “laughing” in the society, the self and others, and the emotions and functions caused by “laughing”. In the workshop, while touching the world of the works of OLTA and thinking about “laughing”, each expresses the image of “laughing” with a drawing or a mask.
