Artist Talk by Anri Sala at L’Institut Franco-Japonais de Tokyo
An artist talk by Anri Sala took place on October 13, 2011 at L’Institut Franco-Japonais de Tokyo. On the window of the lecture room 102 is a music box installation; this piece and the other music box shown in the Kaikai Kiki Gallery together constitute one single artwork titled “No Window No Cry.”
The lecture was given in French in the lecture room 102.
Since the institute is a language school, the talk focused on how language aspect gives effect on and makes transition into other aspects, by showing video works including “LAKKAT” (1994) and “Answer Me” (2009).
Sala’s creations seem to be in line with his own words he told in the interview “I hope to make work which communicates with the viewers through perception rather than logic and knowledge.”
“WHY THE LION ROARS” is a piece where a composition of feature films interact with a website. The piece measures the temperature outside and reflects it by simultaneously editing the film programme – each of the fifty-seven selected films representing specifically defined degrees(from minus 11℃ to 45℃) is interrupted and replaced with another at the exact moment of an increase or a decrease in temperature. The website shows a color chart indicating this constant shift of the programme. The project was exhibited in 104/Centquatre, Paris, and continues online.

You can track the climate change by checking the color chart(click on any title on the chart to see a still image from the film.)
After the lecture, a crowd was formed in front of the installation.
Visitors can freely see the installation in the lecture room except during the classes – please do not miss this opportunity!
