【Today Culture Salon】Nuclear Crisis in the Artists' eye

After the earthquake in Japan 2011,the nuclear power station problem had a profound effect on Japanese life. And the resulting ecological and energy-resource problems have been released everywhere via monsoon. This fact also attracts many artists' attention.  Megumi Shimizu as artist of the 1970's, who leafed through and collected
mass data about this matter, expresses concern through her art works. As we have seen, her imagination aimed at the effects of radiation on creatures and pays close attention to living condition of the animals after the Fukushima nuclear incident as well as human attitudes toward them. Megumi Shimizu points out that one of Chinese characters in "livestock" means sacrifice. People sacrificed them from ancient times, now they are sacrificed by human disaster. However, this kind of acuity makes us stop to focus on the world through the artist's eyes, and let's us reflect on the future of our blue planet.
