Mental landscape during the state of emergency

Tomohiro Miyakawa

A contemporary artist and an employee at a children’s school, Miyakawa has cropped out a certain scene from his work. A collage that reminds of the pictograms found in public areas, and Miyakawa’s uncertainty in stating his words regarding minor incidents—this artwork depicts the tension between adults living within a social system and children who deviate from the system yet are acutely aware of social changes.
