Transgressive Heritage by Kenji Yamada

Artist Kenji Yamada primarily focuses on challenging historical legacy in contemporary society, with a particular emphasis on war heritage and historical ruins. This exhibition consists of two projects the artist completed in 2016: one in the UK and the other in China. By exposing the interregional nature of society and through the re-activation of historic remains both in London and Shanghai, Yamada attempts to provide a paradoxical yet tactical approach to counter the unilateral relationship with states and governments, the powerful authors of the history.
