  大震災を乗り越えて

 

 

 

KURAMITSU は、2012年11月25日から2013年4月20まで、ロシア、サンクトペテルブルグにあるアートセンター プシュキンスカヤ10のアーティスト・イン・レジデンスに参加しました。このプログラムでは、4月6~18日まで個展を開催し、日本領事館が後援しているペテルブルグで年に2回開催される「日本の春」という文化事業の一環として行われました。

 KURAMITSUは、展示に見に来てくださる方々に、現状の、本当の日本を知ってほしいと思い、個展のテーマを東日本大震災に致しました。日本人としてこの大災害をどのように感じたのかをお伝えしたいと思いました。
