第 10 回 恵比寿映像祭

I am having a solo show starting from 16 January to 15 February at LOKO Gallery in Daikanyama, Tokyo.

This exhibition is also the first exhibition of "Displace" the gallery curated two solo exhibitions by Japanese and Israeli artists as the partnership program of The Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions "Invisible".
The title of this exhibition, "grassroots prophet" (nameless prophet) came from the idea that I thought of about "a reverse causal relationship", that is, the past has no influence on the present or the future, and if the future is affecting the past, how ordinary people like us influence the past?
In this exhibition, I mainly considers the interviews with "Wansei"(Japanese who was born in Taiwan during the Japanese colonial era) whom the artist met during in the artist residency in Taiwan. I will also show a session with a Wansei, Ms.Yoko Nakada, known as "Reverse singing grandma" and the video work in the installation using the multi-layered structure of the gallery space.
