Buratakeno Special!
Artist-in-Residence Program Work-in-Progress Showing
A Walk Through the Space-Time Continuum “この家で- 이 집에서<in this house>”


A long, long time ago the town of Takeno flourished as a port of call for the Kitamae ship. The streets from those days remain preserved in the town of Takeno.
Taking place at the maze-like path that spreads through town around a former ship owner’s residence, the Tanaka House, artist Naomi Ota interviewed people living in Takeno and conducted a survey on the former Tanaka House. Along with collecting memories about the history of the “town” from people living there, she also gathered their thoughts on the present and future. Using those bits of conversation as clues, she has created prose, art, and sounds, and will be holding a work-in-progress showing of an installation performance. Pick up a map at the Takeno Tourism Association Center and go on a magical walk around town.
