Stasis Field 2020→2021
Ends in 24 days
ACT (Artists Contemporary TOKAS) is an exhibition series that focuses mainly on artists who have previously participated in a program hosted by Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS). With Tanaka Shusuke, Hirose Nana & Nagatani Kazuma, and Watanabe Go, this third installment features three artists whose works were supposed to be shown at ACT Vol. 2, titled “Stasis Field,” which had to be canceled soon after opening due to the spread of COVID-19.
Stasis field is a term that is frequently used in science fiction themed works and games, to refer to areas in which time seems to stand still, or to be significantly delayed. Triggered by activating devices, the state of stagnation or delay in a stasis field creates the impression of all objects within that area standing still. The three featured artists present works that challenge our perception of things, by incorporating elements of deformation and/or distortion resulting from subtle temporal or spatial manipulations. Considering also the year-long postponement of their exhibition, here they examine from their own individual points of view the current state of society – very much a “stasis field” in itself, with human activities being called to a halt by a new and unknown virus.
