Asia Art Platform 2022
Fukutake House has been at work developing Asia Art Platform, a project that connects various Asian regions through a single village on Shodoshima, since 2013. In 2022, we aim to create a cooperative project that will serve as one of the initiatives of this project, and will exhibit artworks in a vacant house in Fukuda village together with five affiliate Asian organizations (hereinafter referred to as "partners") that share our objectives.
A key feature of the cooperative exhibit is the differing backgrounds and histories of each partner transcending organizational boundaries; we met online starting in the planning stages to create an exchange by assigning roles and building a structure for the implementation of the project. Under the project direction of Fram Kitagawa, we welcomed Lyno Vuth, our partner from Cambodia, as the project curator, and gathered five sets of vibrant art pieces under Lyno's theme of Communal Spirits.
These five pieces of art, through their theme of the animistic practices underlying Asian culture, once again bring light to the style of life based on value for the invisible, natural, sacred, and the land that our forefathers cherished, and bring a fresh perspective on the social and political conditions faced by each region, as well as the problems caused by globalization and modernization.
We hope that visitors will take the opportunity to walk through the quiet village with the help of the exhibition map, and encounter the rich nature and the lifestyle of the people, and explore the different expressions and invisible values of young contemporary artists from around Asia.
