The Armory Show 2013  03/06~10   New York   /  AISHO MIURA ARTS

Solo exhibition held at the curator section of the Armory show based on the exhibition “It is documented” presented in Tokyo in 2012( Curator Eric Shiner, Director of The Andy Warhol Museum )With the confusion of Japanese society since 311 as a trigger, I started to think about the historical track that Japan is coming from the past and is heading towards the future. In order to think about Japanese society today, this exhibition consists of the series of the work created from the necessity to look back the Pacific War that has become the direct occasion forming this society. This explores how to access the Pacific War (the war that we only knows it by the image) not from the War as the given grand narrative / history, but from the independent individual standing point. At the same time, this aims to search the way to engage subjectively with the image in the mediated society covered by the image ( the society covered by the sight of Otherness ).
