And, Where Did the Peacocks Go?

@ Kajioka, Miho



Presentation by the(M) éditions:

" « Right after the Fukushima nuclear plant accident, I found a blog about peacocks that were left in the evacuation zone, within the 20km limit.

I started imagining those peacocks, walking around the empty town with their beautiful wings spread.

The image I had in my mind seemed so far away from what was going on in Fukushima. It was as if two different layers of images - the disaster scene and beautiful peacocks - were overlapping with each other without being unified.

I started to see different layers in almost everything after the disaster in 2011. »
