We study a fluctuation current through a superconducting ring placed in a space with the Kerr metric. This attempt aims at exploring a conceptual problem; namely, we are concerned with the question about the condensed state in an extreme space-time. The superconducting ring is supposed to be placed in the space surrounding the Kerr black hole (KBH) such that the rotating axis of the KBH penetrates the center of the ring. The formulation is based on the Landau-Ginzburg free-energy functional of linear form. The resultant fluctuation current shows several peculiar features that reflect characteristic aspects of the KBH; that is, the effect of the Kerr metric gives rise to the shift of superconducting transition temperature as well as the scale change of absolute temperature.
