This event has ended.
“Shiseido art egg” is a program that opens its doors to promising new artists and offers them a place to present their creativity in public exhibitions. Yoi Kawakubo creates installation works in which he reveals the world using photos, video, sound, and light. Since 2012, he has been producing photographs that trace the presence of invisible radiation energy in the radioactive districts of Fukushima Prefecture affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake by burying pieces of film in the earth there for fixed periods and noting the resulting color changes. Through his works, Kawakubo also searches for points of connection between the memory and history of his own family who immigrated to Spain. This exhibition approaches the condition of modern society using Greek mythology as theme, while referring to the history of the site “Ginza.”
