Kota Takeuchi “Body Is Not Antibody”
This event has ended.
This exhibition “Body is not Antibody” will showcase Takeuchi’s original font and associated works created through photographs of light trails taken by the artist while he worked as a security guard in the exclusion zone in Fukushima during 2019-2020. Takeuchi captured the light trails created by the motions of imitating the workers swaying the guidance light into a photograph and attempted to convert them into an original font. The title of this exhibition “Body is not Antibody” was inspired by the artist’s experience of devoting his own body to the nation’s reconstruction project, and questions the meaning of a body and where the body belongs on a personal level. This is an occasion to reconsider the relationship of individuals’ bodies with nations and society, at a time when mutual surveillance in society and governments interfere with the lifestyles of individuals under the global outbreak of COVID-19 today.
