Following the earthquake and nuclear meltdown in East Japan in 2011, Kawakubo has created work in Fukushima that focuses on the limits of photographic representation. He asks us to carefully re-examine our immediate visual perceptions and to reflect on the ominous histories beneath the aesthetic beauty of his work.
To Tell a (hi)Story includes photographic, sound and text works along with an installation. Kawakubo’s artworks respond to ongoing social issues following the nuclear meltdown in East Japan. His personal and philosophical reflections on the disaster ask us not only to empathise, but to deeply consider the global implications of the nuclear meltdown.
