An exhibition curated by Michikazu Matsune about the cracks in the world

Accompanying Michikazu Matsune’s performance, this group exhibition features artworks exploring the physical and psychological borders that filter our globalized world. Themed around travel, these exhibits reveal the frictions and contradictions caused by national borders and identity, questioning the way we live today. Matsune has worked on this exhibition project since 2015 and created this version especially for Kyoto Experiment with eight internationally active artists.

There are two Japanese participants: Chu Enoki, famous for his hangari (half-shaved haircut) visit to Hungary, and Futoshi Miyagi, the Okinawan artist who confronts issues of nationality and identity based on his own experiences and memories. Other participants include Murat Gök, who erected a hammock on a fence at the Turkish-Syrian border, and Jun Yang, whose video portraits explore China’s one-child policy.
