毒山凡太朗 / Bontaro DOKUYAMA

1984年 福島県生まれ/東京拠点



1984 born in Fukushima, Japan; lives and works in Tokyo, Japan

Dokuyama Bontaro started his artistic practice after witnessing the utter change to his hometown of Fukushima brought about by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, and the meltdown of the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear Power Plant. He creates videos and installations investigating forgotten memories of the past, places, issues and phenomena that have become hard to see in contemporary society. Dokuyama’s work involves the intervention of the artist himself by going to the location of a given incident to collect interviews with the people affected; he warns viewers of the possibility that, in our unpredictable modern world, anyone could become a victim at any time. By facing the past and investigating what has been left behind, as well as what has disappeared, Dokuyama reveals the memories and emotions of people who have fallen through the cracks of history, and the reality that fragments of ourselves may be buried in the future.
