人柱の物語 (hitobashira no monogatari): Exhibition by Nine Yamamoto @ Flux Factory | New York | United States

In her first solo exhibition on Turtle Island, Nine Yamamoto-Masson presents new works that reflect on the private dimensions of war and US imperialism in Asia that, sidelined by hegemonic regimes of knowledge and cold bureaucratization of violence, often elude representation and public discourse – especially within the US public imaginary of Asia and of US military actions.

In this exhibition, Yamamoto-Masson chooses a reduced formal language and visual codes to unlock engagement with the history, reality, and the private and political afterlife of the Manhattan Project and the ongoing global nuclear colonialism it is but one aspect of – including its legions of ghosts around the world. In drawings, collages, installations, and sculptures, the artist negotiates the politics of what can be publicly revealed of the active legacy of gendered and racialized state-sanctioned violence – including rape as a technology of power – and what remains incommunicable and unwelcome.
