Co-ownership of Action: Trajectories of Elements

Curator Kozo Kadowaki organized the project under the theme: "Co-ownership of Action: Trajectories of Elements.” Today in Japan there are a great number of houses that have exceeded their life expectancy, and simply await demolition. One of such houses will be dismantled, with its parts and fittings shipped to Venice. The exhibition attempts to recreate and reconstruct these dismantled elements into something different, finding new uses for them as display walls, benches, projection screens, and so on.

This exhibition was scheduled to take place from May 2020, however the opening was postponed to May 2021 due to the effects of Covid-19.

In addition to the on-site exhibition, the exhibition team at the Japan Pavilion will share videos and images documenting the production status and various processes related to the project through an official website as well as SNS platforms. Furthermore, as an aside, plans have been initiated to consider ways of reusing the materials used for the Japan Pavilion exhibition instead of discarding them.
