About "The Unheard Horse"
OLAibi has long been attracted to the image of a person who has spent time in mud. OLAibi wears mud on her body, and Milo Machiko draws patterns on her body. Photographer Hiroko Matsubara captured these images.

In addition to the sale of the sound and photo book "The Unheard Horse"," a limited number of fragrances (oils and mists) inspired by OLAibi's forests and spices mixed by Takeshi Azuma of Yamashokuon, who is also involved in sound design for this exhibition, with OLAibi's sounds added to the spices, will also be available. sound, which is mixed by Takeshi Azuma of "Yama Shokubu Oto" who is also involved in sound design for this exhibition.

The mud OLAibi wears in the photographs is made by Kanai Kougei of Amami-Oshima. In conjunction with this exhibition, minä perhonen bags dyed with mud by Kanai Kougei will also be on sale.


minä perhonen - "wonder land"

Our bodies are children of a single event that took place in outer space, the remnants of a large star. It is a part of the whole forest of various creatures that existed once upon a time.
We humans, instead of being nothing, can become anything we want. This is a story of wandering in the forest of such a mysterious star.

When I die, I will be buried in this forest that I have spent so much time with.
To do so, I will live my life as pure a human being as possible.

My left ear cannot hear anything.
The other ear sometimes sounds like water, and sometimes like a gurgling sound. I wonder what noise is to me, as I can only perceive sound in one ear.
I have to preserve in my memory the few remaining sounds that I can hear, without spilling a single drop. I want to hear a sound that is a mixture of maximum entropy.
I would like to collect sounds from nature as much as I know.
I want to feel with my own ears what a scale or a chord with the maximum entropy would sound like.
The higher the frequency, the more this ear will be able to feel, even if I can no longer hear both.
That is the contradiction of hope.
