Takuji Yasumura, a 2nd-year student in the Master’s Program of the Graduate School, was present his artwork at THE ROOMER’S GARDEN in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi, as part of the group exhibition “tetsukazunoniwa” [lit. ‘untouched garden’]. During the exhibition, he was also planning to collaborate with “Alternasu,” an alternative space managed by students and graduates of Akita University of Art.
A cluttered space, like an untouched garden, filled with scattered objects each beating out its own rhythm. How can we affirm such a condition?
With the 2011 tsunami, we were forced to come face-to-face with disaster, and our responsibility to our communities. But the most important thing for this region is not to get bogged down in these matters, but rather to create a space for everyone to use, regardless of whether they are a victim or not. To do this, we must create a disorganized, cluttered garden (space), by teasing out the threads (meanings) of our tangled community.
