Floating Between the Tropical and Glacial Zones

Today, global issues related to the natural environment, such as global warming, are attracting the attention of many people across national borders. These problems are linked not only to the natural science perspectives of the ecosystems in each region, but also to the political and economic aspects, and also have a significant impact on the current trend of the art world.


This project is organized by Yoichi KAMIMURA, an artist who has been investigating drift ice in the Sea of Okhotsk and producing works in collaboration with Hokkaido University, and a curator KUROSAWA who has made field research on the natural environment and culture of the Amazon region in Brazil. It is a joint research-production project by the artist and curator to present a new awareness of the current ecology.


Nowadays, environmental changes happening in places that are considered to be "extremely far regions" from urban life are heading toward both metaphorical and physical "heat," involving the global ecosystem and our reality. This project combines the results obtained from research on drift ice in the Sea of Okhotsk, Hokkaido, and the opposite, the tropical rainforest of the Amazon, by using the contrast between "coldness" and "heat", and by combining the two, the exhibition aims to present a new perspective of our environment.
