In recent years, painter José María SICILIA has produced a number of works that analyze sound and shape it into two-dimensional or three-dimensional artwork. In this exhibition, we introduce works such as A Country Called Accident, a work produced based on the roar of the tsunami during the Great East Japan Earthquake, and Thousands years under Miki ENDO, a series of works produced based on the voice and death of Miki ENDO who continued to emit tsunami warnings to residents at Minamisanriku Town in Miyagi Prefecture and died as a result.
