Shadows and Black Rain: Memories, Histories, Places, Bodies
On display June 6 – August 11, 2013

Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center is excited to debut two exhibitions by groundbreaking local contemporary artists. Yukiyo Kawano's Black Rain: Memories, Histories, Places, Bodies and Anna Daedalus and Kerry Davis's Shadows uniquely address the use of atomic weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Black Rain features the artwork of Yukiyo Kawano, a Portland resident, Hiroshima native, and a third generation hibakusha (nuclear bomb survivor), whose installation pieces and performance art reflects the lasting attitudes towards the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Learn more about Yukiyo Kawano at yukiyokawano.com.

Shadows, by Anna Daedalus and Kerry Davis, features life-size prints of anonymous silhouettes, or shadows, created by the Shadow Box, a memory instrument built to create images that evoke the shadows left by victims who were vaporized by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Learn more about the artists at annadaedalus.com and at kerrydavisphotography.com.
