Ami is assisting with the preparation for the upcoming exhibition “Design for Grieving, Memorial and Kizuna (Make a bond)”, which will take place from 2 February to 20 February at QUT’s Garden Point campus in Brisbane.
It has been almost four years since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. With the passing of time, our memories of disasters gradually become distant. This exhibition aims to preserve the memories of the natural disaster and promote the reconstruction spirit through architecture and art. The exhibition will consist of three installations; “Lost Homes Project” by Osamu Tsukihashi, “Emergency Shelter Exhibition” by Jun Sakaguchi and “Installation Art for Tohoku” by Naomi Kasumi.
This exhibition will also collaborate with another exhibition “ How Did Architects Responded Immediately after 3.11 – The Great East Japan Earthquake” which is organised by the Consulate-General of Japan, Brisbane outlining the architectural response to the earthquake.
In addition to the exhibition, on 6 February, there will be a symposium on “Thinking about Australia and Japan’s future – Learning from the experience of natural disaster” with Paul Sanders, Head of School of Design at QUT, Andrew Wilson, Lecturer at School of Architecture at UQ, and the providers of the three exhibits as panellists.
Tickets are on sale now for the symposium from the link below.
