私去年からあちこちのアーティストとのコラボレーションによる“Urban Dialogues”というプロジェクトに参加しています。




I’ve been doing a collaboration project “Urban Dialogues” with artists from other places. The first exhibition of this project has started since 5th in Zoesel Belgium.
You can see photos here

NY based Amy & Rio de Janeiro based Sonia first started this project. Then they were looking for someone from east Asia, then I was invited to join. I’m quite happy for joining this project. Now, 9 artists from NY, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai(me), Kolkata, Mumbai, Madrid, Lagos(Nigeria), Zoersel(Belgium), Liberec(Chezh) are in this project. We continue looking for new artists, now I’m looking for someone from South-East Asia.

On collaboration process, each artist shoot photos or movie in each city, then mix these with everyone’s artwork’s photos, create new collaboration works. When we meet the difference & similarities from different region, nation, way of thinking, we may have feelings like ‘surprise, curiosity, disagree, understanding, etc.’. ‘As shown in the title of the exhibition “DIFFERENCES?/SIMILARITIES!”, each artist change these feeling & their own aspect of view into collaboration works.

These 9 artists are in different ages, so I often feel some greatness about their inspiration & the way they present artworks. Each artist are basically busy with working for their own project, so we can’t make quick step to go ahead in this project, but if we can continue doing it longer and make progress, it will be fine. I also try to find a opportunity to show it in Shanghai. This time I only show the photographs, but next time I want to make a video art. It’s gonna be something to show the realism of China …
