Unknown Life — 3.11以降の「Life」について

シリーズ第3回目の「Unknown Life」展においては、3.11以降大きく揺らいだ「Life 生命」という問題を、複数のアーティストの視点で捉え直す機会とし、展覧会全体で生命という言葉が持つ、今なりの様々な側面を表せないかと考えました。

会場は3カ所あり、それぞれが「Life 生命」を構成する無数の要素から選択されたサブテーマを持っています。今回は「Body 身体」、「Travel 旅・変容・変化」、「View 視界」としました。各会場は作品によってリンクし、訪れた人達は各会場を巡り歩き、その後、またより大きく循環する世界に戻って行きます。

Unknown Life: On "Life" After the 3/11 Disasters

The third in the series, Unknown Life, focuses on the idea of "Life," which was severely shaken after the 3/11 disasters. As an opportunity to reconsider "life" from the perspectives of a number of artists, this exhibition as a whole is aimed at revealing the various nuances possessed by the word "life" in today's world.

The three venues in which this exhibition will be held have their respective subthemes, which were selected from the numerous elements that compose our "Life." The subthemes are "Body;" "Travel, Transformation, Transfiguration;" and "View." The three venues are linked with the exhibited works. After the visitors go around the three venues, they will return to the real world where life evolves in a grander cycle.

Related events will be held during this exhibition, which include an artists' discussion, a film screening, and a live performance related to "Life." In one of the venues, a corner called "Voice" will be set up where guests who have been involved in activities in the affected areas of the 3/11 disasters will hold events. We hope that you will come and enjoy the show.
