【公募主旨】Purpose of Open Call

「トロールの森」は西荻窪駅周辺から善福寺公園周辺をエリアに、毎年11月に開催されている現代アート展です。本年も都立善福寺公園でのインスタレーションや身体表現のほか、西荻窪のまちやお店との新しい出合いを創出する展示やパフォーマンスなどのプランを幅広く募集します。
とくに今年は、「トロールの森」を一つの大きな美術館としてとらえ、次世代にアートの力を届けるアート展をめざします。といっても、決して子供向けの分かりやすさを求めているのではありません。子供の心を揺さぶるために大人が真剣に向き合って紡ぎだす創造的な作品を期待しています。廃校ではなく、生きた学校もワークショップや展示・上演などの発表の場として活用できます。子供たちの先入観や曇りのない目に接することは、アーティストにとっても学びや研鑽の場となるでしょう。子供から大人までが、日常的にアートを体験・鑑賞し、対話する機会となる、そんな意欲的な作品をお待ちしています。
 

Trolls in the Park is a contemporary art exhibition held annually in November at various locations between Nishi-Ogikubo Station and Zenpukuji Park. This year, too, the Organizing Committee welcomes a wide range of proposals, including installations and site-specific performances at the Metropolitan Zenpukuji Park, as well as exhibitions and performances that create new encounters with the town and shops of Nishi-Ogikubo.
In particular, this year we aim to create an art exhibition that conveys the power of art to the next generation, viewing Trolls in the Park as a large museum. This doesn’t mean, however, that we seek art children can easily comprehend. We anticipate artworks rich in creativity, proposed by adults serious about inspiring children. Contrary to art projects that utilize buildings of closed schools, Trolls in the Park offers a living school as a venue to realize workshops, exhibitions and performances. Encountering the candid, unprejudiced eyes of children also offers artists the opportunity to learn and gain insight. We look forward to receiving proposals for ambitious works that offer opportunities for children and adults to experience, appreciate and interact with art in an everyday environment.

 
【テーマ】Theme

2020 年のテーマ/キョトン Bewilderment 

現代アートは、ときとしてキョトンの連続。でも、検索ですぐに答えにたどりつくような分かりやすさが大手を振って 歩いているような今の時代、「!」「?」「・・・・」に出合って、頭が一瞬空白になることって、意外に大事かも。
ポップなキョトン、不穏なキョトン、壮大なキョトン、ひそやかなキョトン、大募集!
 

Contemporary art can sometimes cause ceaseless bewilderment.
But in an age where answers are soon reached by searching online and comprehensibility triumphs, perhaps what is important, strangely enough, is to encounter surprise, doubt or confusion that momentarily causes the mind to go blank.
We look forward to being bewildered by eccentric, perplexing, magnificent and mysterious proposals!
