Koki Tanaka

Abstract Speaking Sharing Uncertainty and Collective Acts


The catalog of Tanaka’s exhibition at the Japan Pavilion during the 2013 Venice Biennale, this book revolves around the common sets of verbal or bodily languages that people unconsciously share, especially when in the same workplace. Beginning from these relational links, the artist’s work turns into a metaphor of contemporaneity, and of Japanese society, in particular, after the 2011 tsunami.
