Kazarioto

“Kazarioto” was created and exhibited at an art festival held on the uninhabited island of Sarushima in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

This work is a sound installation in which sounds are played by wind. The bamboo planted at the top were covered with monkey motifs and placed around the island as objects of veneration.

Goto developed the installation as "a fiction that might have been" by imagining what kind of decorations people would have used to worship Monkey Island if it was considered a sacred place at the time the anecdote was born. For this reason, Kazarioto  uses production methods and tools that were feasible even in that era.

Materials: Bamboo, Hemp, Stone, Soil clay, Copper
