Ryotaro Muramatsu / NAKED (hereinafter referred to as "NAKED") in the winter-only night attraction "Adventure Walk" of the winter event "Winter Wonderland" at Moominvalley Park, which will be held from Saturday, November 11st to Sunday, March 21th. Muramatsu)'s new art "Breath / Bless Project" installation work "Dandelion" will be exhibited.

Taking over the thoughts of Moomin author Tove for peace
"Dandelion" is an installation work in which fluff dances when you blow on a dandelion. "Breath / Bless Project" is a world-class project-type art that starts from this "Dandelion" installed all over the world and connects prayers for peace through a network.
Tove Jansson, the creator of the Moomin monogatari, Ltd., once created the Moomin monogatari, Ltd. during the war and continued to express and disseminate it through art.This facility also inherits Tove's desire to become a peaceful world, and sympathizes with the concept of being able to connect with the world through gentle feelings such as prayers for peace and peace, and from the licensors of Finland's home country. After consenting, I decided to participate in the project. Moominvalley Park's "Dandelion" is a special version featuring Moominvalley characters that symbolize the consistent themes of love and forgiveness throughout the Moomin monogatari, Ltd..While the characters are watching, the fluff of the dandelion flies to the sky all over the world, as if the pretty flowers bloom all over the world, with the prayer that there will be no conflict and a peaceful world.
* "Dandelion" is originally an art work in which fluff is blown and seeds dance, but as a measure against COVID-19, this time the design was changed to an experience where seeds dance by the experiencer holding his smartphone over. I will.By holding the illustration image of the mouth that blows toward the fluff over "Dandelion", the seeds of prayer will be delivered to the world.

About Breath / Bless Project

Breath / Bless Project is a communication art work by Ryotaro Muramatsu / NAKED.A large-scale project-type project that connects people from all over the world, connecting with a network through the installation "Dandelion" where fluff dances when you blow on dandelions, crossing national borders, and growing. It's art.The desire to deliver the prayers for peace of people around the world to the affected areas in real time began.We believe that connecting peace monuments and even places with sad memories to the world through Dandelion will not only be a place of mourning for the painful history, but also a place of smiles for those who wish for peace.Flowers don't need words and don't separate things.The seeds are skipped and the flowers bloom again when they reach the destination.I hope that through this work, we can connect people's prayers through communication, sow seeds all over the world, and make flowers bloom.
