The Japan Foundation has invited the artist Koki Tanaka and curator Mika Kuraya to provide the Japan Pavilion contribution to the 55th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, opening 1 June 2013. Koki Tanaka and Mika Kuraya will address through a video installation the theme, “How is it possible to take on the experiences of others as one’s own?”
Having experienced the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, a disaster on an unprecedented scale, what message should Japan be sending to the world? This is the question that inspired the plan proposed by Tanaka and Kuraya, who have experienced the disaster indirectly through the likes of power cuts and damage caused by radiation in Tokyo.
