Chinatsu Shimizu + Yoshitomo Nagasaki: 5 “Bonito” which we’ve found in Mexico.

Vol.1 Everyone is a sole proprietor / Tomatoes which I’ve brought from you
Vol.2 TOPE: Make it ourself・Intentionally slow down speed・There is a place around
Vol.3 “DIY≠Bricolaje“:We will make it with what is here
Vol.4 “Demostrar”:To show existence
Vol.5 “LENTO pero AVANZO” : Move forward slowly

In Spring 2020, Chinatsu Shimizu and Yoshitomo Nagasaki departed for Oaxaca, Mexico. What they found and contemplated in Mexico when the whole world was in turmoil have encouraged me deeply.
Because of COVID-19, all museums and galleries in Mexico were closed, which made their research impossible; however, the artistic practices on the street never stopped, and they met many artists there. In September 2021, the two will finally return to Miyagi. We will build our life and practice from what they have learned from their extreme year-and-a-half stay in Mexico. (Shiga)
