KUROSAWA Seiha  Desiring Unspeakable Entropy  2019

This is a collaborative project adopting innovative perspectives on the environment, by Kamimura Yoichi, an artist who has been researching and producing work based on ice floes in the Sea of Okhotsk off Hokkaido, and Kurosawa Seiha, a curator who studied the Amazon region of Brazil. Through a collision between the “cold” experience of the ice floes and the “hot” experience of the rainforest, the creators seek an artistic methodology that sets forth a new sensibility and framing of issues surrounding ecology and the changing global environment. Co-curated with Takagi Yuu.
