Video Art Promenade in ASAGAYA/ “Wall to Wall”

Hunt for the video art hidden in the city light!

Overview of the project:
This art project let audience to seek and observe the works located in the various parts of the city. A word, 'Promenade' is originated in France, means taking a nice long walk. Audience searche for an art work with a map that’s provided for them. Without worrying about the “rules” of the art , they are able to enjoy the work fully with their own moment and the space. Rather than having art show in ordinary indoor spaces, such as theater or the museum, we are setting up a stage in the several places in urban city (Wall to Wall) to invite audiences into unexpected encounter with the work of imagery= video art.
