Our intention as we curated enact was to select a group of artists and writers whose interests are aligned with some aspect of a similar 1970 project called Art in the Mind. We sought artists whose work demonstrates a commitment to a conceptual framework for art, an active allegiance to performance, or an understanding that dialogue and exchange can be primary motivations for art-making.

enact was part of ‘Present and Accounted’, the 25th Anniversary of the Cleveland Performance Art Festival.

In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the March 11, 2011 Great Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Oberlin Shansi and Oberlin College co-sponsored a multi-disciplinary symposium and art exhibition on the global impact of the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan. Seventeen artists from the US and Japan exhibited their work in this month-long exhibition.


Misato Yugi’s statement about the video:
The title of this film can be translated, literally, as red dot pictures, or pictures made of red dots–tsubu tsubu being a tiny particle or grain, like the grains on a strawberry or the red rash that appears on the skin of radiation victims. The animation was created purposely without sound; it is given new voice with every live performance by the musicians who put their own music to the images and by the audiences who come, as witnesses, to watch and listen.

A collaboration between SINUU (Cleveland, Ohio musicians Brent Gemmill and Dave Cintron) and Japanese artist Misato Yugi performed live at the opening of ‘The Fire that Doesn’t Go Out’.
