宮島達男展(Tatsuo Miyajima Solo Show)
会期：１０月７日-１２月４日 (October 7-December 4)
場所：霧島アートの森（Kirishima Open-Air Museum）
Miyajima’s solo show at Kirishima Open-Air Museum (Kagoshima, Japan) to be open at October 7th. Photo works of painted numbers on bodies; ‘Counter Painting’ series will be exhibited mainly.
Relight Project is an art project and platform to set up to generate dialogue among people from different walks of life, to figure out ways to, literally or symbolically, re-light the artwork, and to active the artwork as a device to question the role of art in wider society.
In 2011, to pay respect to the victims of the 3.11 disaster, artist Tatsuo MIYAJIMA turned off his public artwork entitled “Counter Void” whose subject and purpose is to question “life and death” and which had illuminated the Keyakizaka area of the Roppongi neighborhood of Tokyo. Since it was turned off at the request of the artist on March 13th, 2011, it has served as a memorial to the souls of the victims. Since then, it seems as though the unbearable feelings of those days following the Great East Japan earthquake disaster have faded from memory. There have been fewer and fewer people engaging in the recovery efforts in the devastated areas, and the country has moved forward as though the influence of the 3.11 disaster has completely passed.
