【公募主旨】Purpose of Open Call

「トロールの森」は、美術館ではなく「日常生活のなかでアートと出会う」をテーマに、杉並区の都立善福寺公園を舞台に2002年にスタートした国際野外アート展です。
2013年からは善福寺公園のみならず、近隣地域、JR西荻窪駅周辺へと増殖し、インスタレーションやパフォーマンス、土地の歴史を掘り起こすプロジェクトなど、多彩なアートを展開してきました。
2021年は記念すべき第20回。トロールの森の持つ自然やまちの魅力的な空間を新たな目でとらえたインスタレーション、大空のもと、自然やまちを歩く人、暮らす人も演出の一員となるような詩や音楽、ダンス公演、子供たちの声が響く小学校でのワークショップや展示、演劇等、ジャンルを超えたアート作品、プロジェクトを募集します。

 

Trolls in the Park is an international open-air art exhibition that has been held in Metropolitan Zenpukuji Park in Suginami-ku since 2002 under the theme of “encountering art in daily life” rather than in a museum. Since 2013, the event has expanded from Zenpukuji Park into the surrounding neighborhood and JR Nishiogikubo Station area, while also developing a range of expressive forms that include installation, performance and projects that uncover the history of the local area.
2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Trolls in the Park. From installations that encourage new ways of perceiving the natural park setting and charming urban spaces of Nishiogikubo; to poetry, music and dance performances that embrace nature and encourage residents and passersby to join in the events under the vast sky; to workshops, exhibitions and plays in elementary schools that echo with the voices of children—we look forward to receiving proposals for artworks and projects that transcend existing genres.

 
【テーマ】Theme

深く息をする、

 Breathe deeply— 

深く息をすることで、緊張を解く。 心のモヤモヤを吹き飛ばす。 頭をスッキリさせる。 自分の気持ちを見定める。 新たなスタートを切る。 コロナ禍で内に閉じこもりがちな今だからこそ、アートにより深く息をすることで、内と外と交感し、世界の息吹をキャッチしたい。 自分自身の内奥をじっくり見つめたい。
深く息をする、あなたの「息 -breath- 」をアートに託した作品をお待ちしています。
 

Breathe deeply, releasing tension. Drive away the fog that clouds your mind. Clear your head. Discern your feelings. And make a new start.
At a time when people are turning inwards due to covid-19, we want art to provide a moment to inhale deeply, arousing sympathy between what is within and what is outside, and allowing us to capture the vitality of the world. Art encourages us to look deep within ourselves.
We are looking forward to seeing artworks that breath with the spirit of their creator, made with clarity of mind.
