An idea that has been charming me for a while. Some time ago, thinking about ways of saving one's memory in this subtle struggle against disappearance, and at the same time involved in a private reflection on an artist's ability to leave traces that can be experienced by other people, I came across the cabinets of curiosities, also called wunderkammer. These wonder rooms were private collections during the Renaissance, individual portrayals of the vastness and sublime of the world in a room. A devotional place, with no apparent rational categorization, but where the display was meant to produce wonder, to incite one's own imaginative recollection of the world.
A room of wonder | Tokyo takes inspiration in these wonder rooms and invites a group of artists to the adventure of creating a collection of wonders and its translation and insertion in real time in an exhibition room for common share, with no limit of the medias used. A collection of their artistic trajectories, of their daily lives, of their belonging to different histories of art, of the scene, of their imaginaries and of their time. A collection of Japanese men and women, dancers, actors, sculptors, video artists, performers, ordinary people, working collaboratively across fields, helping each other, sharing tools and knowledge for the creation of one room of wonders.
