Under New Management: Video Store, an installation project by co-curators Suzanne Carte and Su-Ying Lee
Text from website: Video Store is a gallery exhibition that takes the form of a video rental store. The project employs the characteristics of the retail environment to connect to the local community while, challenging the gallery’s role as an intermediary that delimits the viewer’s direct access to art. Video titles in stock are artists' works procured through an open call for submissions . “Customers” are asked to pay what they wish, which can be interpreted as cash, a non-monetary exchange, critique, or no remuneration. This facet is in place as an experimental form of engagement, where artists have the opportunity to receive responses directly from viewers. In turn, the viewer has an uncommon channel to the artist. In addition to payment, rental and return are also on an honour-system basis to remove barriers that exist due to membership requirements, deposits, and return policies at commercial ventures.

de Adrienne MARCUS RAJA//self-production//self-distribution

Materials: online resources esp. youtube.com and archive.org.
Inspiration: 全学連 & Situationist

What one will experience is a journey in finding the unspoken world where the sun sets through documentations of the hidden history of Nippon. The past, present and future, often clashes in events of struggle for fairness and liberation from oppression. While mainstream media overwhelm the rest of the world of being the perfect example maintaining the traditional while achieving the modern, the struggles and repression of the concerns of the working class and university students remain mostly unnoticed. It would continue to disappear unless people continue showing interest in experimenting and learning more of events censored from the text books.

"All art is response. It cannot exist outside the political no matter how hard it tries. If it describes a flower, it describes a flower as the artist sees it, depending on her bravery, her fear, her humility, her arrogance, but she describes it as it must be also. Its place in the world depends upon it. Art responds to the world with its own provocations. It demands new answers. It never ends the conversation. - rygajournal.ca"
