MORINAGA Yasuhiro "POLLINATORS:Life of Hmong", Saitama Triennale 2020 / Photo: MARUO Ryuichi

MORINAGA Yasuhiro is one of Japan’s leading sound artists working internationally. While serving as a music director for films and theatrical productions, he engages in field recordings across the globe as his life work, exploring the characteristics of various lands and cultures from an anthropological perspective as a means to reconsider the world.
Focusing on the life of the Hmong people who live in the mountainous regions of northern Vietnam, on this occasion Morinaga presents an installation that overlays shamanistic rituals to wade off evil and misfortune with the honey-collecting activities of beekeepers. Through the symbiotic coexistence of humans, the environment, and life brought about by the respective dialogue between the shaman/spirits and beekeeper/bees, the work serves to introduce an alternative perspective to our social life and the coded systems that exist within it.
