we are very pleased to share with you today, the day of “riding the waves on march 11” which, took place as one of the side events of soichiro mihara‘s art project “blank projects“.
documented and directed by takamasa iwasaki
enjoy watching as much as we did that day!
every time I say “the sea of fukushima” i feel a tingle, but that’s our strength, isn’t it? like a tingle – chikkuri, chikkuri – I hope this beauty and story touches many people.
our friend, pascal is a french photographer who fell in love at first sight here and has been photographing ever since. that was in 2016 if i remember correctly, just a few weeks later he started a new life in Japan with his partner manon. today, in march of 2022, he is finally showing what he captured in fukushima at the slope gallery. together with the presentation of soichiro mihara’s “blank projects“, “umarekawaru” will be shown at the slope gallery until march 19. how you can miss this opportunity?!!
the online exhibition “blank projects” by soichiro mihara takes place online, which means you can visit it on your own devices whenever you want. here is an option: you can also visit the online exhibition on site at the slope gallery from march 9 to 19, where you will find the photo exhibition “umarekawaru” by pascal viot.
it was march 2021 when artist soichiro mihara and aesthete yosaku matsutani visited engawanoie and said, “i was introduced by curator yukiko shikata.” while we were having tea on the engawa (veranda), it was naturally decided to install mihara’s artwork in engawanoie. since the early summer of 2021, when it was actually installed, the “bell” has been quietly telling us about the existence of things we cannot see, but which are there. it rings, as it should, so casually that i feel that our narrative about this land is also as it should be.
the exhibition is streamed live (free/24 hours) from 15 venues including engawanoie.

V4C engawanoie shooting night on the occasion of the japan project of the documentary film Voyage for Change cook together eat together! date: saturday, 20 april 2019 from 18h00 venue: engawanoie
documentary film Voyage for Change This film is an adventure – a catalyst for inner transformation of young grown-ups alike; a trigger for positive actions of Hope & Change where teen protagonists take the lead. The documentary Voyage for Change follows teens as they travel the world from Paris to Delhi, San Francisco, Tokyo – and other destinations. Meeting peers from different cultures and lifestyles, committed adults, changemakers and experts alike, they question the answers we grown-ups all too often have ready – immune to the simple and straight-forward challenges of those who will outlive us for many years.
