21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Exhibition "Wild: Untamed Mind"

October 20(Fri) - February 4(Sun)

The base of our life culture and life, lies in the 'untamed mind.'
This exhibition focuses on the fascinating power of the instinctive, untamed mind of contemporary creators, unveiling how to detect the ʻuntamed mindʼ through their works and documents.

The base of our life and culture, lies in the 'untamed mind.' This mind affects both human instinct and intellect, and it is the trigger and stimulant for creativity. A good example is found in Kumagusu Minakata, a famous Japanese naturalist in the Meiji Era. Kumagusu repeatedly generated discoveries and inventions, not coincidental, but somehow inter- connected.
What does the ʻuntamed mindʼ mean in todayʼs context? How can people rediscover it within themselves? How can they understand and express its previously-undetected qualities?
We have invited Shinichi Nakazawa, philosopher and anthropologist. This exhibition focuses on the fascinating power of the instinctive, untamed mind of contemporary creators, unveiling how to detect the ʻuntamed mindʼ through their works and documents.
