Art Action UK is proud to present the 2016 Artist Residency Award winners: KYUN-CHOME! Kyun-Chome feature two collaborating artists: Eri Homma and Nabuchi, who create cutting-edge contemporary artworks that present a deeply troubled Japan.
This emerging ‘art unit’ engages with social and political issues caused by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in East Japan in 2011. Kyun-Chome deftly construct daring art interventions and thoughtful participatory works. Although poetic and humorous, their work avoids whitewashing complex political concerns. Kyun-Chome highlight the gravity of social issues in Japan by drawing out global themes and engaging international audiences. The works ask each viewer to confront his or her own precarious existence in the world. Their upcoming London exhibition Ain’t Got Time To Die promises powerful and unexpected insights into contemporary Japan.

Art Action UK is a catalyst. We want to create opportunities for cultural practitioners to develop strategies that will help those affected by disasters. These include participatory projects, exhibitions, talks and discussions. We feel it is important that the voices of those affected by disasters are not silenced. We actively engage with artists and curators who represent marginalised political concerns and facilitate spaces to explore both artistic and socio political interventions.
