An event every day that begins at 10:30am, repeating until 04-11-2018

The Japanese term “sanpo” means walk, stroll, ramble, and wander. It is not a walk for the walk’s sake, but for the sake of spiritual health, as it were, meditative act in our daily life. In his wander Wordsworth immortalized the experience of an encounter with a daffodil field in his poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”. The lover of nature, Beethoven made a point of taking a walk in the woods every day for his musical inspiration. It is during “sanpo” that Sobue often encounters stunning scenes in light and shade, finds beautiful objects he never noticed before, and has some flash of inspiration for creativity. For this exhibition, Sobue explores the essence of his personal experience in “sanpo” by assembling the fragment of images of which he was inspired, through which he pondered the existential meaning along the lines of art history. The exhibition consists of the new body of work alongside some of previous artworks he produced appropriate to the theme. This is a series of his visual monologue that Sobue has explored in his artistic everyday life ever since he settled in the Lake District.
