Rainbow on Wheels
Curated by Deshna Mehta
Venue: GARCIA DE ORTA
Tsuneo believes that we both live in space, and are that space as well. We can communicate and understand each other because we share this space. It is filled with light and sound, and the artist would like to use the rainbow as light for his installation, because we tend to forget light, and we pay more attention to objects such as screens instead. Tsuneo’s ‘rainbow on wheels’ is a space he has created, which allows us to look at light in the form of a rainbow and meditate on it, similar to how a yogi meditates with candle light. The vessel that makes the rainbow will have wheels, so that it can be moved around. The rainbow will be projected at many different sites around the city, like a market, a park, a stage, or even on people.
Tsuneo Sekiguchi is a Japanese artist who makes rainbows with a prism of water and a mirror that reflects sunlight. His main project as an artist is constructing a rainbow-hut, which is a place for people to dance together. He made his first one in Goa in 1989. Since then, he has been making rainbow-huts in Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan and India. The concept behind his work is to create a space for people to understand themselves as primitive human beings, dancing around a fire. The installation is meant for people to notice who they are, because the artist believes that when people understand this, they will face reality as they have never done before. In doing this, they will meet an absolutely new world.
We still need the money to make this happen
