Arty-Fact: The release of this print coincided with “The Dividing Bridge” exhibition held at Nanzuka Underground in November 2011. For Tanaami, the bridge is a place connected with death. During his childhood, Tanaami saw the horrors of WWII and the images of bodies strewn along a drum bridge during a night air raid. These images stayed with him. Tanaami faced his own mortality when he experienced a pulmonary edema at age 44. During his illness, he suffered hallucinations and nightmares.

For Tanaami, the bridge is symbolic of the crossing between this world and the next. The space beneath the bridge is believed to belong to another world, separate from reality – removed from everyday order – a spot for hiding dead bodies and a secret gathering place for prostitutes. These are recurrent themes in his Lost and Wondering Bridge Series. Source: Nanzuka
