Purpose of the residency

Purpose of my participation to this program is to create new works after research about relationships between historical or political things and works. I feel that my works need stronger background. I was influenced by many things from Dinh Q Le and Tomoko Yoneda when I stayed at residence program at TWS. Their works have profound research so the works touch our mind. My works have a lot of differences from their works but I hope to try to make new works from research. In this program I focus on difference between Japan and Germany reflection about the war and I would like to think what I can do for Japanese present circumstances with my works.

Plan during the residency

First, I will visit museum and research German reflection about the war and think difference between Japan and German. I have a plan to visit to Auschwitz which used to be a concentration camp. It would be a help to think about history of the Berlin and German. After the research I would like to learn Germany or artist how to face the things. I think it is different from Japan.
After research I would make a new work for Japanese present circumstances. Japan is standing on difficult situation after the 3.11. It is important and helpful to think how to face the situation that learning from how to face history.
