For the Yokohama Triennale 2020:
At the Yokohama Triennale 2020 “Afterglow-Catching the Fragments of Light”, the artist welcomes a Lux Media Collective by three artists based in New Delhi, India, and invites them to travel beyond time and space. The
In the past, when analog TV was available, the sandstorm that flowed after the end of the broadcast contained electromagnetic waves called cosmic microwave background radiation, the remnant of the Big Bang. The title “Afterglow” was chosen to refer to the fragments of light emitted at the moment of the birth of the universe that we were unknowingly touching in our daily lives. Lax Media Collective considers that the energy of destruction that occurred in ancient times has become a source of new creation and has created this world and life over time, and the modern world is also at various levels. We believe that human activities have been carried out in the continuity of destruction / toxicity and recovery / healing. How do we achieve a coexisting way of life rather than eliminating toxic things in a rapidly changing world? Along with Lux Media Collective, this question is asked among artists, viewers, and other people involved in this exhibition in various forms.
By sharing and continuing to think, the “Yokohama Triennale 2020” will be shaped.
The Yokohama Triennale 2020 is not only a regular exhibition, but also consists of two parts, an “episode” event that starts in November 2019 and is held not only in Yokohama but also overseas. We will add a book named “Source Book” to share the starting point (source) of thought, and try to expand our awareness of the world.

Concept (commentary):
The curation of Lux Media Collective (hereinafter Lux) is not a “theme” It is characterized by thinking from “source”.
“Source” is a material that exemplifies the way of life and thinking of real people of different times and cultural backgrounds, and is a material for conversation and thought as Lux develops a project with artists and other stakeholders.
Lux shares these materials to all people from the planning stage before the opening. I hope that the world of rich thought and thought will appear at the Yokohama Triennale 2020 as if it were bushes. Lux summed up the concept of this exhibition into two texts: “Sharing Sources” and “Yokohama Triennale 2020 Starting with Episode”. Please see the press document.
“Sharing Sources”
Introducing and sharing Lux’s own thoughts starting from the five sources (collected in the “Source Book”) using the following keywords: It can be seen that LUX has found hints that will shape this exhibition such as “self-study”, “care”, and “understand the world and shine light”.
Keywords: “White Noise” “Luminous Care” “Bush” “Blinking Light” “Anti-encyclopedia”
“Fisher’s advice” “Partition” “Toxic light” “Untranslatable words-Ontosila” “Yokohama Triennale 2020 starting from the episode”
Lux focused on the time between the Yokohama Triennale. At the Yokohama Triennale 2020, in addition to exhibitions that specify time and place, events called “episodes” will be held intermittently to create opportunities for dialogue. “Episode” will be moved to Hong Kong, New Delhi and Johannesburg, starting with “Sharing Episode 00 Source” in Yokohama, and will be in full swing during the exhibition opening in Yokohama in July 2020. is.
Lax said, “I want to make many people around the world look at, examine, and get interested in the various powers (impulses) that make up this exhibition. We will be able to unravel the strong division between research and production, minority and majority, concealment and disclosure. ”
