Vincent Roumagnac
Reacclimatizations 3 (Tokyo)

13-16.4 2023

24/7 window display 

January 2023. I have returned to Tokyo for the first time after the pandemic closure. I am staying in Nakameguro. In front of the window of the little apartment generously lent by a dear friend, on the opposite side of the street I see the edge of a hedge of tsubaki (camellia) and momiji (maple tree). I am smiling because the shape of it looks like the floral pattern of my project Reacclimatizations. 
A little later in residence in Kyoto, I make, from a glitched photograph of the Tokyo edge of hedge, a miniature model of Nuihaku. 
From April 13 to 16, a human-sized version of this Nuihaku model, made of home-made fake satin, is on display 24/7 in Työhuone’s window.
Nuihaku is a traditional Noh theatre costume. It is a short-sleeved robe made of satin, mainly worn by male actors playing young female protagonists.

Vincent Roumagnac is a Helsinki-based Basque-French artist and researcher. Initially trained as an actor and a director, Roumagnac drifted away from “straight theatre”’s infrastructures and regimes of production to look at how the notion and practice of the “stage” transform through contemporary climate-morphing and techno-ecological conditioning. For this, he has proposed, and has been implementing with, the tentative ecodramaturgical notions of “redirecting/deepening/reacclimating” the stage, and “reecologizing” theatre. In parallel, Vincent has been practicing floral design, based on the techniques learned in his youth in a family of florists and gardeners, and on the practice of ikebana he has developed during several stays in Japan. His work is currently supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation (SKR).
