​​

There are three witches there.
And Macbeth is in everyone's greedy heart.
The voice of the witch is the voice of Macbeth's own heart.
Even if Macbeth dies and a new champion is born
The witch will not stop whispering prophecy to another Macbeth.
All the dead Macbeths wait for a new Macbeth in the ring.
And we have believed in the myth of safety, which is nothing more than a prophecy.
The Burnham Forest is already in motion.
What does the witch whisper to us who pretend to be unaware?
And what will we whisper to the next Macbeth?

The exhibition "Radicalism in the Wilderness: Global Japanese Contemporary Artists in the 1960s" focuses on Japanese expressions that are leading the art of the 1960s and have global significance with pioneering experimentation. It is full of "various strategies to break the preconceived notions of art" and introduces expressions that broaden the definition of visual art, including various practices such as performance, mail art, and land art. Was taken up as a related program because it is a radical work that fuses "Tomorrow's Joe" and "Macbeth", which became a social phenomenon in Japan in the 1960s.

オーガスタス 父を探し求める

The love of parents and children, who never returned to the existing "Kura" from the Edo period, was put away. Allowed to witness, we are beginning to realize that there is no time for love.
 
What if my son Augustus and his father, the night watchman, were aware of each other from the beginning? If the flow of time of nine years that separated the two had disappeared in an instant.

I remember Yoji Aoi who told me that day, "There is no modern theater without the influence of these two works," Waiting for Godo "and" Zoo Story. "

It seems that the scenery of memory is always adapted and directed by oneself. In other words, nostalgia may be a dialogue with the present self.

This is a memoir by the current Augusta.
We are always living in the present.
