What image comes to mind when you hear the word “artist”?
A fine artist? Painter? Perhaps a singer or actor?
When I stop and think about it, I realize that it is very difficult to properly explain what kind of person an "artist" refers to.
This is because our preconceived image of an “artist” is limited, stereotypical, or way off target.
This project brings together artists from Asia, the Tohoku region, and Yokohama in an attempt to reconsider the question, “What kind of existence is an artist anyway?” through an exhibition program in Koganecho.
“Nobody knows their story.”
In reality, we may not yet know a single thing about their existence.
