We are imperfect, liars, and fakes.
Our sad bodies…
In this chaotic world, art should not remain silent.
Within our unconscious lies the memory of beauty existing in this world. It is also present within our bodies. We can find branches resembling the shape of our spines in the forest, and touching dry leaves can remind us of the beautiful hands of our grandmothers. We are also a part of the principles of nature.
That memory exists for us to contemplate life, death, loneliness, and love.

Mikako Kura creates a “Fake Musical Instrument" based on her unconscious memories of beauty. "Fake Musical Instrument" has sheet music, which is a poem written by Mikako Kura for that. Based on the poem, the performer Eszter Parragi plays the “Fake Musical Instrument", and the performance is completed.
This time, we will use a “Gramophone of Wind” that records and reproduces the movement of the wind. Through this, we hope to sigh at the cosmic loneliness of all living beings.

Coincidence or necessity, we meet in this universe. Life and death over and over again, flowing like a river, like a drifting object, like sand that keeps blowing in the wind, adventurously, we meet again and again, and we part again and again.
Is it music or just the wind?
I've probably heard that song. Is it a song I sang long ago, or is it from a distant universe?
In the beautiful silence, I will continue to wander with only the gaze of someone as light.
