Group Play, 2017

Group play #1[They have always a single point in common, Be an engine, A tiger with its baby and goats, Copy of mimic]15 Min, Group play #2 [Koko-Kohl, Long width of a river] 8 Min



During the residency in Palai, Rajisthan, India, I visited two comprehensive junior and senior high schools to research children’s play for their education. Through that I got to know an Indian education philosophy, and on the other hand, I again realized how difficult the philosophy is achieved in actual society. That represented, for instance: in a play where children mimic and enjoy diversity of their expression, the teacher guided them in performing same behavior before that, or in another play where they form a group in accordance with call of numbers, they looked like engaging in leaving someone out of the group. Therefore, when I turned my eyes to the inconsistency of education, those situations made children’s play seem laughable and also caustic. Then I became interested in their play as a medium which would call our attention to actual social issues like of education, and reconstructed them to show the character of the medium more clearly by altering rules and adding new ones.
