Carrying over the same title PANORAMA GARDEN from last year, artists and artworks insert themselves into the Nagoya Port area and transform it as if creating a new garden. Inspired by the piano piece Time Sequence (1976) by the Japan’s prominent composer Toshi Ichiyanagi, this year’s exhibition borrows its subtitle from this piece and focuses on the flow of time and the transformational relationship of land and place. The term “sequence” signifies a series of various scenes, and is often used in the contexts of film and architecture. Art moves the landscape of the area through creating a string of different scenes and nurturing a cultural ecosystem.
Embarking on with a concert and the archive display of Ichiyanagi’s Time Sequence, the exhibition continues its journey through variety of artworks. A work refers to the relationship between natural phenomenon, time and place, another makes intervention with architecture, a performance links the scenery and people’s ordinary lives in the town and some work-in- progress projects add a different perspective – the breadth of presentations shapes the exhibition using the whole town as one stage.
The exhibition mixes different modes of time to create diversity in situations. By following chronological and spatial orders in one place and breaking them in another, it creates various connecting points of art and the local area, pushing art to nurture a long standing relationship with the everyday.
