Ends in 7 days

Bontaro Dokuyama, born in Fukushima, began his career as an artist when the TEPCO Fukushima nuclear meltdown occurred. “Sakura,” his acclaimed exhibition at Lee Saya last year, considered the civic use of cherry blossoms throughout different eras, calling into question issues of national identity, war, economics, and the Olympics. This show is meant to promote IGENE, a tour project in Fukushima’s “difficult-to-return” zones intended to present the realities and spark discussion about the area. This exhibition offers glimpses of the tours on video along with new pieces and works by the late Fukushima artist Chieko Takamura. Visitors can also learn more about the tours and purchase tickets.
