こどもが親を変な動物に変身させる「親子で動物ファッションショー」。

まずは事前に用意した「シロマダラ」「カミクラゲ」「イソシジミ」「ヤマセミ」や、自分がつくりたい動物、お父さんやお母さんに変身して欲しい動物を最初に決めます。その後、好きな布を選び、ハサミとホチキスを使って動物の形をつくり、スパンコールやモール、ワタ等で思い思いに装飾して、着ぐるみを制作します。

我が子が自分のために、一生懸命制作する姿をじっと見ていたお母さんからは、「いつも一緒にいるけど、こんなにこだわりをもっているとは思わなかった。」と新しい発見に驚きの声が聞かれました。また、連休を利用して福島から祖父母の家に来ていた中高生の姉妹は、「普段あまり自分を表に出さないお母さんをかわいく変身させたかった。」と話してくれました。

このワークショップでは、「親の決めた服をこどもが着る」という普段の関係性を逆転させることで、親子間の新たな発見や関係性の構築を企図していました。着ぐるみを通して、親子の絆がより一層深まったようです。

開催エリアの入谷地区は、海に面する南三陸町の中でも内陸側に位置するため、東日本大震災では仮設住宅が建設され、津波で被災した沿岸部の方々が暮らす地域となっています。

"Animal Fashion Show by Children and Their Parents," where the children would dress their parents up in funny animal costumes, was held in the Iriya district of Minamisanriku in Miyagi Prefecture. Iriya lies on the inland side of Minamisanriku, a city that faces the ocean, it was designated as the location to build temporary housing facilities after the Great East Japan Earthquake for those who had lived along the coast and lost their homes to the tsunami.

First, the children decide which curious animal they would dress their parents as. We prepared a number of costumes in advances, such as a snake, a giant butterfly, a jellyfish, a clam and a kingfisher. If the kids had a different idea or a specific animal they wanted to dress their parents as, they also were able to design an original animal costume. After deciding on the design, the kids chose their favorite fabric out of more than 20 variations and proceeded to cut and punch them into an animal shape using scissors and staplers. Then, they used spangle, braid and cotton to give their costumes a special touch that turned them into one-of-a-kind works of art.

The main event of the day, the fashion show, was held under a blue sky. The dressed-up parents came walking from gate down the stone steps, their runway, and presented their outfits to the guests of the art event.

A mother who closely watched her child absorbed in creating something beautiful remarked, "We are always together, but I had no idea my child had such a particular taste." The discovery seemed to come as a surprise to her. There were also other participants—sisters attending junior high and high school who used their holidays and came all the way from Fukushima with their parents to visit their grandparents. They explained, "We wanted to give our mother a cute dress, because she does not really express herself usually."

With this workshop, we were aiming to reverse the usual relationship of parents and children, where parents decide what their child wears, and by doing so enabling parents and children to discover something new and create new relationship patterns. We believe that this goal was achieved.
