[the end] Akira Fujimoto "sea garbage of the land" exhibition

Sea garbage main image/2019 of the land

Akira Fujimoto who sent social message through work and project from contemporary art domain.
As new challenge, we face each other in great "question" called marine plastic garbage this time.

Convenient plastic did living of the rapid economic growth era wealthily cheaply. However, most that flowed out into the sea so far of plastic are of unknown the location as microplastic, and floating thing continues drifting to ocean current in time more than imagination and we are sometimes cast ashore and appear before us in large quantities. It is story of the land across the border, and such situation cannot be settled in the sea. We face each other, and, in this "question" that there is not authorized bad person, how does Fujimoto develop work as artist?

In phenomenon to be caused in society, environment that we cannot control, we appeal for various fields and talks with people what we should live on seeing how.

You proceed to venue, and please take this "question".
