After a very successful residency project, Kmori & Seo have been invited back to London by Deptford X Festival. Komori & Seo, a young duo who won our 2014 Art Action Residency Award, returned to Rikuzen Takada where they have been working amongst victims of the 2011 Tsunami and Nuclear fallout. Their experience during the 2014 Art Action Residency has given them a renewed determination to continue with their method of research and have been archiving the forgotten aspect of the local population's stories.
They will be showcasing their new work, "Moving Mountain" which focuses on the paradox causued by the enormous effort to re-build the area affected by the Tsunami.
