Staging most of their actions in “natural outdoor spaces,” and admitting they “only like[d] the infinite time and space of open air,” The Play is a art collective formed in 1967 in the Japanese Kansai region.

About

Following a large presentation of their actions in the collective exhibition « Le Mont Fuji n’existe pas » at Le Plateau / Frac Ile de France, Paris in 2012, this first solo exhibition of the group in France gathers together works from 1969 to 1988. It focuses on the relationships between human beings and their natural or constructed environments through outdoors physical labor, cultivating care for the living, which is still of particular relevance nowadays. Drawings, sketches, posters, photographs and videos, the documents of these actions are presented in a site-specific installation from 1983 entitled Kalejdoskop, which spreads out on the entire gallery floor.
