[Purpose of Open Call]
Trolls in the Park is a contemporary art exhibition held annually in November at various locations between Nishi-Ogikubo Station and Zenpukuji Park. In 2019, we invite a wide range of proposals, including site-specific and performance-based work shown at the Metropolitan Zenpukuji Park, in addition to exhibitions and performances taking place at Momoi Daishi Elementary School as well as shops and galleries in and around Nishi-Ogikubo. We look forward to receiving creative proposals that reflect this year’s theme, the natural environment of the park, and the unique history and culture of the area.

【テーマ】Theme
2019 年のテーマ/「囁き」ささやき whispers 

木々のそよぎ、水面をわたる風、虫の羽音。 自然界は多様なささやきに満ちています。
街を歩けば、雑踏や歓声にかき消されそうな小さな音。
耳元のひそやかな声は、あなただけに伝えたい真実? それとも誘惑?
ささやきを漢字で書くと、口が一つに耳が三つ。
見ることや話すことより、じっと聴くこと、3つ目の耳で本当に大切なことを聴き分けることが求められているのかもしれません。

The sigh of trees, the wind passing over the water’s surface, the beating wings of an insect: The natural world is filled with various whispers. When walking through the town, such infinitesimal sounds are likely to be drowned out by the traffic and crowds. Falling only on your ears, do these small voices wish to convey the truth? Or are they an invitation?
The Chinese character for “whisper” (囁) combines the radicals for “mouth” and “ear,” with “ear” repeated three times. Rather than speaking or observing, perhaps what is needed to discern things of real importance is to listen with all our senses.
