In a 1972 performance, a few members of the collective THE PLAY drifted in a self-built house (“ie” in Japanese) along the Kizu and Yodo River towards Osaka Bay. 45 years later they showed this action again at the Venice Biennale. The house can be interpreted as a retreat from the social hierarchies and individualistic values of modern life.
