The ASIA NOW 2018 Japanese Platform joins forces with two curators from the Mori Art Museum to offer an exclusive preview of select works by emerging artists from Japan.
Japan is often talked about as a mysterious country, under the clean and high-security circumstances, the high-tech city with pop gadgets, as animation and games could co-exist with animism and the primitive sense. On the other hand, with the big issue of the declining birthrate and aging, the acceleration of digital technology including the information communication technology, a new problem is occurring caused by these issues. Contrary to the diversity commonsense, many “gaps” are emerging as well.
In “Transitional”, 6 artists are selected from “Roppongi Crossing 2019” at the Mori Art Museum on the theme of “transitional existence” or “connection between the gaps”. Their works would light up the “connection between the opposite” as “imagination and reality”, “Past and Future”, “Nature and Civilization”, “Cats’ worlds and Human being’s world”. As the third way or point of view, these “transitional” existences could give us the precious opportunity to confront with “nowadays”.
