Furo Marathon, 2011

performance

 

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

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。偶然にも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繋げることを思いついた。
