misc_none A Body in Fukushima     Tell a Friend
   

Photo by William Johnston

Eiko Otake and William Johnston’s collaboration, A Body in Fukushima, explores environmental disaster, human failure, and loss through Johnston’s photographs of Otake’s presence in Fukushima, the site of the 2011 earthquake, tsumanmi, and nuclear meltdowns. After the earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011, the radiation released from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant required the immediate evacuation of all inhabitants from a large area. In January and July 2014, dancer/choreographer Eiko Otake and historian/photographer William Johnston followed abandoned train tracks to desolate stations and eerily vacant towns and fields in Fukushima Prefecture. Two years later, in August 2016, they returned to many of the same places and visited others that had only recently become accessible to the public.

Free and open to the public.

Sponsored by Jacob's Pillow and the Berkshire Athenaeum.
