For Japan Charity Auction: Architecture for Humanity @ HotShoe Gallery

明日6〜8時、Farringdon(ファリンドン)にあるHotshoe Galleryで、津波の被害を受けた東北地方の長期再建に役立てるため、写真のチャリティ・セール/オークション「For Japan」が行われる。8月2〜5日の間、日本や日本文化をテーマとした、世界中から寄せられた写真の中から選ばれた100点を展示。その売上げは、「Architecture for Humanity」の仙台プロジェクトオフィスに直接贈られる。

Architecture for Humanityは、貧困地帯や災害地において、建築の観点から人道的・緊急支援を行うNPOで、現在仙台で、孤児院、アート&ミュージック・セラピーセンター、地方レベルでの経済復興のための中小ビジネス支援イニシアティブ「urban acupuncture」、日本政府の復興10年計画に含まれていない小さな漁村の再建など様々なプロジェクトを行っている。

There will be a charity print sale/auction of photographs, “For Japan,” tomorrow between 6-8pm at Hotshoe Gallery in Farringdon, to raise funds for the long term reconstruction of the tsunami devastated north east region of Japan. The photographs, which evoke and celebrate Japanese culture, were submitted from all over the world, and selected 100 photographs have been on show from August 2 to 5. The proceeds will go directly to the Architecture for Humanity project office in Sendai.

Architecture for Humanity is a non profit organisation which offers building and design support in response to humanitarian and emergency needs. It is working in Sendai on a number of projects including an orphanage, an art and music therapy centre, an ‘urban acupuncture’ initiative to help get small businesses back on their feet to kick start economic recovery on a local level, a small scale fishing village reconstruction (rebuilding along the coastline is not included in the Japanese government’s 10 year plan).

“Hokusai Tsunami print for Japan” Charity Print by Pure Evil

ポップ/ゴシック・グラフィティ・アーティストを自称するPure Evilが、自身のオンラインショップで、葛飾北斎の「富嶽三十六景波裏」をモチーフにした「Hokusai Tsunami print for Japan」というチャリティー・プリントを販売、日本赤十字社への寄付を募っている。

Pure Evilは、前にグラフィティの事を書いた時に何度か触れた(参考12)、家の近所にある、不動産開発業者Londonnewcastleが持つアート&パフォーマンス・スペース、Londonnewcastle Depotの壁に、MURDER MILEうさぎ?のグラフィティを描いている(今は他のグラフィティに取って代わった)。

Pop/gothic graffiti artist, Pure Evil sells a charity print “Hokusai Tsunami print for Japan“, inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai‘s The Great Wave off Kanagawa, to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross to be distributed directly among the earthquake and tsunami affected Japanese population.

Pure Evil left some graffiti such as MURDER MILE and colorful bunnies (I am not sure the title) on the wall of nearby art & performance space Londonnewcastle Depot, owned by a developer Londonnewcastle, which I mentioned in my past entries (12). Two of the graffiti are gone now, taken over by the new work just finished recently.
