La Viennale di Venezia is the oldest international art exhibition established in 1895 and still has a great influence to the contemporary art.The Japan Pavilion for the Venice Biennale was built in 1956 with funding provided by Shojiro Ishibashi, founder of the Ishibashi Foundation which established former BRIDGESTONE museum (ARTIZON museum). Because of this historical connection, the homecoming exhibition of the Japan Pavilion’s Venice Biennale exhibition has realized at the ARTIZON museum.
Curated by Hiroyuki Hattori, the exhibition “Cosmo-Eggs” is realized by specialists from distinct fields –an artist, a composer, an anthropologist and an architect –and explores themes of coexistence and symbiosis between human and nonhuman entities. The homecoming exhibition will feature a reorganization of the original “Cosmo Eggs” Biennale show in accordance with the exhibition space at the ARTIZON Museum. In ARTIZON, the reproduced exhibition room of the Japanese Pavilion on a 90% scale with all the art pieces are installed exactly same composition is centered as the foundation. Adding the original installation, in which video, music, words and space exist and co-exist as individual elements, the homecoming exhibition will also present new materials such as additional documents and archives.
