About the Exhibition

Skillfully using sophisticated sound and video technology, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller create works that draw us inside them by appealing to our senses of “hearing” and “seeing.” Reality and fiction interblend, and suddenly we are in a completely different space-time—like opening a door to another world. This will be Canadian-born duo’s first large-scale solo exhibition in Japan and Asia. Viewers will be plunged into their striking art world through some ten installation works, including new works never exhibited.
