Repairing Earthquake Project 2011-2021
|Publisher||Jap Sam Books|
An art initiative dealing with an extensive natural disaster – the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 2011 – ‘Repairing Earthquake Project’ started with a simple idea: repairing objects that were destroyed in the tsunami. A first trip to the tsunami-hit areas of Miyagi was made in 2011, with the aim of finding broken objects and making careful observations of these areas and the people who lived there. The trip has since been repeated multiple times over the past eight years, following the progression of the reconstruction of buildings and memories, and observing changing traces of the aftermath as they are slowly wiped away.
