Tokyo Story (installation, dimensions variable)
A film installation for The Bridge of Dreams at the Asian section of The World Gallery in the Horniman Museum and Gardens.
Filling the exhibition floor with Japanese tatami mattresses, Tokyo Story recreates a Japanese living room where every family used to gather to eat and watch a TV in an old time much like what audiences see in The Bridge of Dreams. Surrounded by the museum’s artefacts, in the absence of the liveliness of a family, the domestic space transforms into a place where the historical relics temporarily inhabit with everyday objects.
Tokyo Story includes books Illumination by Arthur Rimbaud, Hiroshima, Mon Amour by Marguerite Duras, and A diary used in The Bridge of Dreams
