The National Art Museum "Christian Boltanky – Lifetime"
This is the largest retrospective exhibition in Japan, showcasing the full scope of the activities of Christian Boltanski (1944 –), a representative of contemporary France. The writer presented a short film from the late 1960s and, in the 1970s, actively used photographs to produce and attract attention to the works of self and others ' memories. In the 1980s, he worked on a religious theme with an installation of light and gained international recognition.
After that, he has published his works all over the world, focusing on history, memories and traces of human existence. In this exhibition, I look back at the various attempts of the Bolance key for 50 years and at the same time, a writer who prides himself as "Artist of Space" works on an installation tailored to the exhibition hall.
