Our 2014 Residency Artists Duo Komori and Seo arrived to UK from Tohoku, Rikuzen Takada, one of the area hardest hit by 2011 Tsunami in Japan. Nearly 2000 people lost lives in this city with population of 15,000, and entire town structure was devastated. Fukushima Nuclear Fallout Disaster which followed this physical devastation still continues to damage the local fishing industry.
Komori and Seo moved to the area immediately after the disaster and now live and work amongst the victims of the Disaster while documenting and archiving the local people's voices while also keeping reflective log on their own observations in their Blog.
During this residency we are hoping to share Komori and Seo's rare perspectives through Art Exhibitions, Talk Events, Open Studio and workshop sessions.
