Abstract

Tokyo Trace 2 is a curatorial research project comprising a media arts exhibition and publication, which explores the role of curator as translator, highlighting the complexities of cross-cultural creation and contextualisation. As Masaharu Sato's first exhibition in Australia, Tokyo Trace 2, elaborates upon the artist's guiding artistic and conceptual concerns, shadowing his recent solo presentation, Tokyo Trace, at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo. Attempting to re-trace the forms and dynamics of this initial exhibition, Tokyo Trace 2 explores the effects of geographical and cultural displacement upon the spatial dynamics of Sato’s work, as they navigate the artist's and audience's perceptions of the place, Tokyo. This project commissioned two local Sydney writers, Kathleen Linn and Kate Middleton, to develop literary and poetic responses to the exhibition, as they layer differential sentiments upon the artist's work. This exhibition was presented at Sydney's most reputable Artist Run Initiative, Firstdraft, selected through a competitive and rigorous process of peer assessment.
