This event has ended.

ISCP announces The Primary Fact, an exhibition of work by current ISCP resident Hikaru Fujii.

The artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States, The Primary Fact features an expansive new seven-channel video and photography installation based on the artist’s extensive research into a recently excavated mass grave in the southwest of Athens dating from the 7th century BC.

Across the seven videos in The Primary Fact, Fujii adds an artistic and performative approach to the archaeological and anthropological analysis of the eighty shackled skeletons from the Classical Age unearthed during the construction of a park two years ago.
Artist and filmmaker Hikaru Fujii (born 1976) lives and works in Tokyo. Fujii undertakes extensive research and fieldwork to investigate existing systems and structures, based on the idea that art is produced from a relationship between society and history. He has had exhibitions at Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens; National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; and National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, among others.

Hours: Tuesday-Friday 12-6p.
