This event has ended.
In his first solo show in Japan, Omer Fast presents two video works based on the theme of drones. It is said that Israel first proposed the use of drones as unmanned weaponry in conflict, and the US took on the development of these remote controlled machines. Firing upon the land from up high, like a god with the authority to determine who lives or dies, the drone has a certain transcendental presence. Behind such flying god, is a military operator who is able to preserve their own safety while confronting a deep mental struggle with the tasks at hand. Here the artist tackles the contradictions of contemporary society through the symbol of the drone.
