Purpose of the residency
ArtXperiences is an artistic collaboration and our project is bound to the photographic, video graphic glance and the artistic acts which we shall concern the situation in Japan after the tsunami and the nuclear disaster of March 2001. We shall become attached to their impact on the geographical and urban space of the concerned zones and which extends also in the region of Tokyo and its inhabitants.
This project has several components:
The very plastic first one thanks to a photographic work that will attempt to stage the quoted diverse impacts,
The second science-based will attempt to stage experiments (reflections and exchanges led beforehand with recognized scientists).
Some of these experiments will be poetically handled, a system of print of the radioactivity on the x-ray film will visually testify of this phenomenon and sound tracks also.
Plan during the residency
Our project will relate to the following zones:
- From Tokyo to Sendai, the coast and cities devastated by the tsunami in north-eastern Japan
- Neighbourhoods of Fukushima: some cities beyond 20 km of the power station of Daichii and Daini like Katsurao, Tamura and Minamisoma
- Architectural environment of the camps of lodging for the "nuclear refugees", and the refugees of the tsunami: provisional dwellings accommodating the moved populations.
