“Meet the Artists” Workshop Series
Noguchi Tappei’s Parent-Child Workshop: “Hajimari no Tamatebako: Tonosama-Wakka in the World of Chienowa

* Booked Out

* Conducted online, in Japanese

An old man is carrying a whole bunch of pineapples in the middle of the desert. A band of thugs appears and steals three of his pineapples, and they roll the pineapples down a mountain slope. Upon finding the pineapples, an ant consumes them and her jaws become quite strong…

These and many other kinds of strange things take place at a place called “the World of Chienowa,” where the ghost called Tonosama-Wakka actually lives!

You participants will first receive a gift from Tonosama-Wakka, called Hajimari no Tamatebako (a secret treasure chest “of the beginning”). Open your treasure chest, and join art explorer Noguchi Tappei to dive into the world of Chienowa!

In this workshop, we will use puppets to act out the mysterious riddles of the world of Chienowa. Who knows, the rooms and computer screens you’re always looking at may never look the same again, transformed into something completely new!

* The World of Chienowa: a world where artist Noguchi Tappei tells the story of the mental landscapes he has seen during his travels thus far.
* Tonosama-Wakka: a ghost that lives inside Noguchi Tappei.
* Hajimari no Tamatebako: a secret treasure chest, sent only to the participants of this workshop in advance.

About “Meet the Artists” Workshop Series

From its very beginnings, Mori Art Museum has catered to visitors of all ages via a range of initiatives that include exhibition viewings for schools, and artist-led workshops for preschoolers, elementary and middle school-age children. In May 2020, the Museum launched “LEARNING ONLINE” as part of the “MAM Digital” online program, and the “Meet the Artists” project series is designed to be a new, long-term component of “LEARNING ONLINE.” In each edition of the series, participants will be able to meet the artist and/or curator online, and converse with them directly in their own words. The aim will be to offer a fulfilling art experience digitally, in addition to the real-life, physical experience of art in the museum space. Though “Meet the Artists” may not be accessible in a real space, it will doubtless serve as a wonderful opportunity to expand our world together, through the power of imagination.


Noguchi Tappei

Born in 1992. Art explorer. Having been exposed to woodblock prints and performance art at Musashino Art University, as well as experiencing conceptual exploration and creative mountain climbing as a member of Waseda University’s Exploration Club, Noguchi has come to think about movement or production as an act that encourages mutual interaction between the environment and the spirit. Some of his activities including Hitchhiking to New York and Going around Taiwan While Pulling Tires represent his exploration of the system and spirit that wavers due to the act of movement as the “unknown”; and delve into the beginnings of art that comes from the circumstances occurring at each instant. He dubs this “art exploration,” which also includes his inquiries on the records associated with these activities. At present, due to his interest in the spirit of those who wander as well as the actions taken by those who break free from the system, Noguchi is trying to connect the “non-conformists” of all times and places with his own activities, while searching for a vital way to talk about these things.
