This event has ended.
Kuribayashi’s artistic exploration of boundaries has been confronted by the concept of “restricted zones” or “no-go areas” in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear accident. Starting from the end of September, for the autumn iteration of the Setouchi Triennale 2019, Kuribayashi will create and present his work at the debeya in Ibukijima, a place he felt a strong attraction to. The debeya was a space where for over four hundred years the island’s expectant mothers spent a month before and after giving birth. This exhibition presented at Art Front Gallery could be described as a “debeya” where Kuribayashi’s questions on his own existence.
