The starting point for the artists' theme is an old, stylish homeless woman who lives on the streets of Tokyo-Kunitachi. It is the neighbourhood of artist Ebata Kyoko. Seeing her every day on her way to work, started a process of reflecting on the dynamics of communication that happen in public spaces. Especially to strangers who are forced to switch public space into their private settings.

Turning a common place like a bench, a front door or stairs of an empty shop into a private setting can be confusing for others, disturbing, or sometimes inviting. It is an interaction that differs from the common expectations. It creates a space of uncertainty. And it confronts us with the construction of the space itself and how it is socially regulated.

Starting from this the artist's goal was to investigate the way of communication in this public place.

Ebata Kyoko started to think of the condition of the homeless woman and how to interact with her – or not. At that day she will invite us to join her for an art picnic on blue sheets in her garden. While Eva Kietzmann, through drawings, reflects on urban design and how it regulates people's interaction.

The project space “House of Ebata”, is located in the garden of the artists private house. The event is going to take place in cherry blossom season. In this season, all Japanese go under the cherry blossom, sit on blue sheets and drink sake: In these late evenings, we see homeless people and office ladies talking and drinking together, under the blossom as the same drunken people.

It is known that homeless people collect the “blue sheets” used as picnic sheets, and use them to make their houses later. The magic of the blossom gives us a illusion of communication.
There are no cherry blossom trees in the garden of Ebata but the street outside her house are filled with blossoms. However, the event is meant to be a site specific interaction with the environment in which the homeless woman live.

'Making a living sculpture(seed pebble) workshop, lead by artist WURI


In October, oMo Art Space presents the group show(curated by10AAA) with artists who subject the objects that are easy to fade away. The artists have reformed and even recreated their previous works and, through that process, they also have expressed the efforts to find the way to preserve them. The dilemma in artwork, temporality, mortality, and eternity, is to be reperceived through artists' "Art Resurrection".

The exhibition itself defies "Temporality". It wouldn't be one-time event nor same contents in different places rather continuous to live as "Absence of Artists" and "In Another Space". The living of the exhibition would be the experiment and the journey to find the answer if a work of art could be expressed properly in the absence of the creator.
