*wah document is an art-group and in which I had joined. The main content of their activities was to make discussion about ideas with which participants in our project had played for a long time and to realize the most interesting idea of them with the participants.







Homeground Football


Artificial turf, sponge ball, shoes, soccer uniform, soccer goal, two-wheeled cart
Performed in Rotterdam, NL

During an Artist-in-Residency program in Rotterdam, as always, *wah document tried to gather ideas for our project from local people. And we chose an idea entitled “Home Ground Football” suggested by an elementary school student through discussion with local collaborators. For realizing this idea we carried tools for playing soccer and visited residents to play soccer games with them in their houses.

wah document はロッテルダム/オランダのレジデンシーに参加した際に、市内の公園や路上、小学校でのワークショップを通して作品のアイディアを集め、市民の協力を得てこのアイディア「Home ground football」を選出した。私たちは「相手の“ホーム”でサッカーを行う」というアイディアの実現のため、サッカーに必要な道具を持ち運び、家やレストラン、バーなどを訪問しながら、そこに関係する人々と屋内で試合を行った。
