Stay, create and present in Tokyo with 3331 Arts Chiyoda's residence program
Residence Period: 2018.01.05-2018.03.29
I intend to capture people performing their self-described ideal deaths in the city of Tokyo. Subjects are staged as corpses according to how they dream and explain their deaths. However, their gestures and the placement of objects around the body are determined by the artist. By doing this, the images are accompanied by unpredictable and uncontrollable compromises. The artist also models for those who do not want to be photographed.
