Research-in-progress presentation. During April and May, Swedish artist Malin Pettersson Öberg has been in residence at Youkobo Art Space to continue an associative research departing from French author Georges Perec’s writings on space/the room and the year 1974, when his novel ”Species of Spaces and Other Pieces” was published. She has enquired these topics through the lens of ”Japan” and its various spaces, including those linked to the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster of 2011, to precarious living- and working conditions, and concepts of travel and transitoriness. Her residency is supported by The Swedish Arts Grants Committee's International Programme for Visual Artists. For more information please visit:
