Memories of the Place: Anamnesis

2020.10.22 - 2021.03.21

Through the experiences of daily life, or tracing back the accumulated past, you can get a sense of the scenery of nature and buildings, and the activity of humans and animals. In this exhibition, the artists introduce the present and past of the place by means of works that are expressed by using various senses.  It is then that an anonymous place appears as though it has a memory. The concrete experiences of each individual and time with a longer scale than human beings blend together in the place.

Due to this serious calamity, we all experience big changes in our daily lives. After temporarily closing for three months, we here at Arts Maebashi were forced to re-examine our exhibitions and projects. When faced with a difficult situation head on, we try to take another look at our own place. What kind of place is this, and what kind of future can we build from here? In order to progress little by little, we may need an imagination that seems to fly lightly while at the same time confirming the sense of our feet. We want our museum to be a place that can provide the opportunity to confirm your senses.
