TOKAS Creator-in Residence Exhibition

Daisy Chain

TOKAS Creator-in-Residence 2020 Exhibition

Since 2006, Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) has been implementing the “Creator-in-Residence” residency program, which offers opportunities for creators active in various disciplines including visual art, design, and curation to stay and create works in Tokyo or at various overseas destinations. 

Artists participating in the residency program re-examined established views of various subjects by tapping into localized memory and social structures. Their works, which turn our attention to unheard voices and overlooked facts, endeavor to update and refresh our views of the world, not only focusing on history and events in distant lands but also incorporating awareness of the issues we face here and now. “Daisy chain,” originally meaning a literal chain of daisies often worn as a crown, is also a technological term for a method of connecting computers with multiple devices. The daisy – a flower whose etymological root is “day’s eye” – comes to symbolize a unit in a network of multiple interconnected nodes. In this exhibition, 15 artists who completed residencies at various locations around the world present the art that emerged from ideas and insights deepened through their research. We are sure you will enjoy these works, which connect across time and space, exploring new perspectives and turning multifaceted mirrors on contemporary society.

Theme Project | Myth-understanding

For this theme project, launched in 2019, creators participating in the TOKAS Residency pursued artistic activities individually, with the common theme of “Myth-understanding,” while also engaging in dialogues and discussions. While living in Tokyo, a metropolis where diverse identities intersect, they examined phenomena concealed in customs and societies from multifarious perspectives through the framework of mythos (the etymological root of “myth” and “mythology”), and organized the results so as to present their works together in a single exhibition venue.
