Nana Shimomura Street Art Performances, “Live painting: Tracing Back the Flow”

5/25(Sat) 19:30 – 5/26(Sun) 4:30
Tokyo Midtown Plaza B1F Metro Avenue
The artist reconsidered the act of “painting” to create the work Tracing Back the Flow, currently on exhibit. Through the artist’s living painting, the artist will further apply her brush to the displayed work, taking joint ownership of the act of thinking about “painting” and the traces it leaves. In this work, tracing back the flow of the act of “painting” yields evidence of a person fumbling aimlessly for a source/reason. Taking into account the many states of mind and phenomenons that surround the action of “painting,” this piece will symbolize the memory and emotion of “painting” in modern day lifestyle.
