Tomoki Imai: Designing an Exhibit According to Your Own Rules! [Hara Museum, Tokyo]

Tomoki Imai’s Semicircle Law series was shot according to a rule (“law”) that stipulates all images should be of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant taken from within a radius of 30 km of the plant. In the display of the works, another rule stipulates that the wall on which the works appear should be oriented in a way that directs the viewers’ gaze beyond the wall and towards the power plant as they are looking. In this workshop, each participant will design an exhibit that follows rules created by themselves. For example, a rule that stipulates that all works are to be of the same size, or that all works of the same color are to be displayed on the same wall, etc. Through the deliberate creation of rules and their follow through, participants will see more clearly the overlapping points with Imai’s exhibit.
