PlanetesQue: The Case of O

In this exhibition, Ryohei Otsuka will develop his work using a device called "PlanetesQue," a kind of board game created by BIEN.
The device is in the form of a house with wheels on the roof, containing an instruction manual, several dice, and several symbolic objects.
The player (creator/decoder) carries the house/box to a desired location, opens the device, and follows the instructions to use it, observing the environment around the location and bringing it into the exhibition space.
In this way, the world of the player's own subjective view of the land is reconstructed in the exhibition space as if it were a box garden.
This work has been exhibited at the People project space in Ebisu, Tokyo, and at the PARCEL gallery in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, with different players and locations, but this time it will be exhibited for the first time in Okinawa, inviting Ryohei Otsuka as a player. Please come and see "PlanetesQue" by Ryohei Otsuka, which can only be seen at this location.

The approach of incorporating the context of various cultures is also a characteristic of BIEN's expression.
