The exhibition Nishiko: Repairing Earthquake Project about the aftermath of the 2011 tsunami in Japan, is accompanied by the Stroom School program Rising Waters around the theme of sea level rise.

Finissage of the exhibition, with Canadian plastic shard give-away action by Nishiko and a preview of the forthcoming book on the Repairing Earthquake Project. Two earlier editions dedicated to the project are on sale in the Stroom bookshop.

After the earthquake and tsunami in 2011 in Japan, Nishiko went searching for remaining objects and collecting eyewitness accounts that enable us to experience the aftermath of the disaster first hand. The exhibition at Stroom presents the Repairing Earthquake Project for the first time in its entirety.
