Reveries of  Poor Walker

部屋で延々と「何か」を自慰行為のように擦り続けている姿と、
その「何か」を扱って様々な行為に見立てるような姿の、2つの行為を収めた映像作品。


最後のシーンでは” 手放すこと” を目的に試行錯誤していたようにも見える。
内で磨く( 慰め)、外で試す( 発散) 行為。


作品タイトルは、フランスの思想家ルソーの著作から一部引用した。

彼は晩年、強度の迫害妄想に取り憑かれ、公衆に対して執拗な自己弁護を試みたが、やがてそうした企てをすべて断念し、ひたすら彼自身のために執筆した最後の著作が「孤独な散歩者の夢想」。

This work is a video compilation of two scenes, one where the writer continues to rub "something" like masturbation in the room, and the other where he does various acts dealing with "something".

In the last scene, you can see that you were trying to "giving up something".
the act of polishing internally (masturbation) or experimenting externally (divergence).

The title of the work was quoted from the work of French thinker Rousseau.
In his later years, he was obsessed with intense delusions of persecution and tried to defend himself persistently against the public. But then he gave up all such attempts, and his last book, which he wrote entirely for himself, "Reveries of a Solitary Walker(Les Rêveries du promeneur solitaire)".
