Currently in its final week at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, "Go-Betweens: The World Seen Through Children" is a collaborative exhibit by international artists using photography, sculpture, and various other medium to capture the themes of duality and childhood. Some explore a child's reality vs. their imagination, while others look into real situations where children have had to play two different roles. For example, in photographer Kim Insook's photograph "Great-Grandmother & I" [Photo 1], she explores the own 'dual identity' she experienced in her own childhood as a third-generation Zainichi Korean - or a Korean residing in Japan. Zhang O's "Daddy & I" [Photo 2] is a portrait series featuring Chinese-born daughters and the American fathers who adopted them via international programs. The exhibition, running through August 31st at the Mori Art Museum, will continue a tour throughout Japan in the next coming months. Here are the remaining dates: Nagoya City Museum (Saturday, November 8 - Tuesday, December 23, 2014) Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum (Friday, January 16 - Sunday, March 15, 2015) The Museum of Art, Kochi (Sunday, April 5 - Sunday, June 7, 2015)
@danidee do you have a link for the Won Seong Won collection? I'd really like to see more of the photos
@caricakes Yeah, the last one is so cute. It's from a series of photographs by Won Seong Won called "My Age at Seven" if you want to check out more!
Thanks for this, @danidee, and for the link to the Won Seong Won collection. Fascinating work!
@maryjane01 Of course! There's a really great resource called AKIVE that is a working collection of Korean contemporary artists. Here is Won Seong-won's entry: http://www.akive.org/eng/artist/A0000065/Seoungwon%20Won It has all of her "My Age at Seven" series along with her other collections!
This is a really cool series! I'm definitely interested in checking out more.
