Kenji YANAGI text

The Concept
The plan for the “Matsushiro underground shelter” can only be thought of as a deed of madness.
Not knowing what was happening at the time, I can only think of images from historic sites, photographs, and documents, etc, but I would like to create a work that focuses on the local population who were harmed by this plan.
