The Shiogama Sugimura Jun Museum of Art is proud and delighted to present the artists featured in the 2022 edition of Voyage – our annual program supporting local emerging contemporary artists.
This year we showcase the work of two Miyagi-based artists who hail from very unique interdisciplinary backgrounds: film director, artist, and writer Fumi Suzuki and visual artist Rena Kudoh.
Under the theme of "Being Seen (Mirareru Koto)," Fumi Suzuki introduces herself and her artworks as “Miss Arkadin.” Fumi’s artworks are inspired by the intimate conversations encountered with various people, as well as her personal journey with regards to gender and identity.
Joining us for the eighth annual edition of Voyage, Fumi’s artworks are an open invitation for us to reflect about the importance of our own identities and challenge them vis-a-vis the standards set by mainstream society through the lens of gender.
