The Japan Art Inheritance Association proudly presents To Remember- Who am I?, the 1st of 2 exhibitions in support of the East Japan Earthquake Reconstruction. The exhibition will open 10 years following the Great East Japan Earthquake, from 13 February (Sat) on through 26 March (Fri).
The exhibition presents an audio and video installation by the artist unit, Kosai Hori + Erize Hori. Urging viewers to reflect upon their identity, the work compels viewers to question what ideas are forged for the new age. A revised version of a same-titled 2019 installation, the work exhibits the emotions the artist felt at the devastated site, a month after the 2011 Earthquake. Enveloping the venue in sight and sound, the work builds an illusion that draws participants into its own universe. Through this, viewers are made to question what their ideas of 'life' is, and what their roles should be.
2nd Installment: Tomohiro Muda, Icons of Time 2021
The second part of this series will be Tomohiro Muda's photography exhibition. The exhibition will present images from Muda's book, Icons of Time: Memories of the Tsunami that Struck Japan, which records found objects swept away by the tsunami. The exhibition is to be held from 11 March.
