David Sylvian: Abandon/Hope


In Japan this summer there will be two, simultaneously held, photographic exhibitions by David Sylvian. Abandon will open in Tokyo on the July 22nd at Spiral Garden. The second, Hope, opens on July 20th in an abandoned building located in the port town of Uno (Okayama) as part of the Setouchi International Art festival 2013.

The current details are as follows:

from 22nd July - 29th July
Spiral Garden, Tokyo, Japan

from 20th July - 1st September
Uno (Okayama), Japan. Commissioned by the Setouchi International Art festival 2013 (Setouchi Triennale).

The project Abandon/Hope also incorporates two especially commissioned sound installations, curated by David, as part of the Setouchi Art Festival 2013.

The sound installation is divided into two sections: 1) a composition by Taylor Deupree, entitled 'Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything'. This can be heard via a playbutton (MP3 player) for rent or purchase from the mobile Kiosk in Uno. 2) A reading of various quotations by several famous philosophers broadcast by loudspeaker from the mobile KIOSK.
