Daisy Chain —TOKAS Creator-in-Residence 2020 Exhibition
Since 2006, Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) has been implementing the “Creator-in-Residence” residency program, which offers opportunities for creators active in various disciplines including visual art, design, and curation to stay and create works in Tokyo or at various overseas destinations.
Artists participating in the residency program re-examined established views of various subjects by tapping into localized memory and social structures. Their works, which turn our attention to unheard voices and overlooked facts, endeavor to update and refresh our views of the world, not only focusing on history and events in distant lands but also incorporating awareness of the issues we face here and now. “Daisy chain,” originally meaning a literal chain of daisies often worn as a crown, is also a technological term for a method of connecting computers with multiple devices. The daisy – a flower whose etymological root is “day’s eye” – comes to symbolize a unit in a network of multiple interconnected nodes. In this exhibition, 15 artists who completed residencies at various locations around the world present the art that emerged from ideas and insights deepened through their research. We are sure you will enjoy these works, which connect across time and space, exploring new perspectives and turning multifaceted mirrors on contemporary society.
