This exhibition "RETURN TO" introduces the works of 4 creators who participated in the Residency Programs by Tokyo Wonder Site, and were sent to each city such as Berlin, Madrid and Taipei in 2015. Being away from Japan for a while, they discovered something new and obtained extraordinary experiences that must have influenced their creation in their career while encountering different culture.
This exhibition "Imaginary Synonym" introduces works of 3 creators from Asian region who participated in International Creator Residency Program 2015.
Synonyms are words that explain the same or similar concept of particular words; however, there is more or less a gap in the interpretation according to images each individual may conjure. Interpreting does not have to be unified, or even this deviation sometimes exerts as a trigger to creative approaches.
The 3 creators discovered possibilities of creation that come from these gaps among their culture, that of common in Asia and that of Japan during their stay at TWS Residency. TWS is proud to present these abundant cultures in diversity and ambiguity; that is not described as just "An Asia."
