Furo Marathon


Video 6'45''
Performance
2011

Following the day of the last day of my exhibition in a public bathhouse, I was scheduled to take part in another exhibition. Then I heard that a bath as an art work was exhibited at the site and noticed that the distance between the former exhibition place and the later one was about 42 km. Thus I came up with the idea to connect those bathes with running. Furo (風呂 lit. bath in Japanese) is pun for "full" marathon.

 
風呂マラソン, 2011

 私は銭湯で行った展示の会期終了日の翌日に、自身の別の展示のオープニングを控えていた。そして、その展示会場に作品として風呂が設置されること、会場間の距離が約42kmであったことから、風呂と風呂をマラソンによってつなげることを思いついた。
