Voyage – Emerging Artists Support Program Solo Exhibition: Chiaki Orita – “The Collective of Image”




For the ninth edition of this program, we are pleased to introduce two artists selected through an open call: painter Fukiko Tsurifune and contemporary artist Chiaki Orita.
Orita reexamines the relationship between “objects” and “people”; expressing the difference between them through concepts such as the perception of distance and cognition using various techniques.
In this exhibition, Orita enlists the help of those connected to Shiogama to further conduct the “Collective Image”; a project that has been developing until now through other various locations.
Using the “color of impressions” that people perceive from scenes as a reference, she creates collaged and reconstructed works from a vast amount of photographic materials. This is in order to attempt to reimagine the relationship between people and scenery through the lens of “collective knowledge.”
How do we perceive scenery and how are we influenced by it?
We hope this exhibition will provide an opportunity to think about these questions as we move back and forth; comparing scenery and artwork.
