I had the great honor to participate in the “ICAIOS – Public Discussion Series #91 Return to Surf in Post – Tsunami Aceh and Fukushima” on November 28, 2022. The discussion got me thinking about the connection between the ocean and people, and the environment and community in which people live.
So, here is a summary of the discussion in Japanese to share with our friends in Japan. The entire discussion was recorded and is available on ICAIOS’ Facebook page in English: here
11月28日にアチェ・ インド洋研究アチェ国際センター (ICAIOS – Aceh-International Center for Aceh and Indian Ocean Studies)の トークイベント「Public Discussion Series #91 Return to Surf in Post – Tsunami Aceh and Fukushima(仮訳:アチェと福島 津波 の後で 再びサーフィンに)」に参加しました。海と人とのつながり、そして 人の生きる環境やコミュニティを考えさせられる内容でしたので、ぜひみんなと共有したくこちらレポートをお届けします。
本トークのタイトルでもある「Return to Surf in Post-Tsunami Aceh and Fukushima」(仮 訳:アチェと福島 津波の後で 再びサーフィンに)は ピーターさんとアダムさんの研究プロジェクト の一つ。土地や環境との関わりが深いスポーツ愛好家は、災害後の比較的早い段階でその土地に戻る、という世界各地での先行研究を踏まえた研究です。なお、たいていの場合、最初にその土 地に戻るのはサーファーだそう。人と環境、人と海との関係がどのように日常生活に影響を与える かを言語化するふたりの研究は、身体と土地の関わりに強くひかれてきた私には、とても興味深 い内容です。

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.
