Fukuoka Asian Art Museum Artist in Residence Program 2022 Soh Souen's page / Soh Souen Offieial website
Soh Souen pursues what constitutes his own identity in relation to his body. He has produced a series of paintings in which only dots are extracted from portraits, as well as paintings framing his own body. In recent years, he has expanded his field of expression to include video works and performances.
During the residency in Fukuoka, he will focus on the "navel" and "breathing," which are deeply related to human birth (the beginning of life as an individual) and examine the nature of "I" and "we". Participants who will be models for the video and who will participate in the performance will be recruited from the general public.
