Takayuki Yamamoto on "What Kind of Hell Will We Go To"

Resource Type: 
Keyword Results: 

Japanese artist Takayuki Yamamoto doesn't just make hell fun and educational. His co-created art installations with elementary school children apply youthful imagination to explorations of "the particularities of social systems and customs by which people are raised." For Phantoms of Asia (on view at the Asian Art Museum from May 8 to September 2, 2012) he has worked with San Francisco's Bayview area elementary school students to build cardboard dioramas of their personal hells along with a companion video commenting on their structures. His work is entitled, What Kind of Hell Will We Go To.
