Rieko Tsuji “Fictionality”
This event has ended.
Rieko Tsuji studied photography and video art and is currently interested in the influence of media, including television and the internet. She has traveled abroad frequently in recent years, researching misunderstandings that occur due to cultural differences and communication over distances, through social media and video calls, along the way.
In Tsuji’s own words, “The world on the TV and laptop screen are not showing the real world. It is risky to believe the information you receive from the media about other places and people. The screen can only show one perspective, and it is one-sided. Japanese people don’t eat sushi everyday and unfortunately ninja rarely walk in the streets of Japan.”
For this exhibition, Tsuji has produced installation works based on her battle with her experiences on the internet. The work will also be broadcast online via video streaming to allow audiences to interact with it via their phones and laptops.
While using the internet, which enables us to talk with those are on the other side of the world, are we losing our sense of distance, privacy and touch? How can we really ascertain what is happening on the other side of the screen? In this multi-faceted exhibition, Tsuji presents the audience with a series of provocations.
