Houseplaying No.01 Video
This book is a record of the exhibition “HOUSEPLAYING” which took place in the “FLASH” house designed by the architect Ryosuke Yuasa. The exhibition was held amid the living space of the house resident. Artists exhibited and welcomed the visitors with their works created under the theme “VIDEO (which means “I see” in Latin) and based on the “FLASH” house. Visitors, with no relations to the resident, could enter in a space where one’s everyday life was crystallized. This created a multilayered exhibition space where visitors could wander between the “FLASH” house itself, resident’s belongings and artworks.
This book was composed under the exhibition theme “VIDEO” and was developed as an object which has its proper time and space by using elements like texts, photography, documents or drawings that have different time axes and are result of a “recording” process. It is an attempt to escape from the reductionism of the “recording” process by creating a new sharable exhibition space with visitors who will take the book even if that person did not go to the actual exhibition.
