Interview video for “Special Exhibition Hikaru Fujii: Record of the Bombing” is now available.
Hikaru Fujii is an artist who gives new perspectives and visions to obstacles people deal with, while researching on histories related to wars and disasters via video archives and documents and having numerous conversations with the local community.
Record of Bombing focuses on the problem of a memorial hall in Tokyo, which was designed to commemorate the victims of the Bombing of Tokyo and War, which has yet to be constructed due to disagreements over historical sensitivity.
The art work was exhibited in MOT Annual 2016 Loose Lips Save Ships at Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. Record of the Bombing would re-exhibit as a special exhibition at Maruki Gallery for the Hiroshima Panels.
