JAPAN 3/11: Imaging destruction

Philip Brophy – Artist, musician, curator, film director

In his talk, Philip Brophy will review the use of tree imagery in some anime, films and artworks, focusing on the ‘Miracle Pine’ (Ippon Matsu), the last tree to survive from a grove of 70,000 trees. The tree is regarded as an unofficial symbol of post 3/11 recovery in Japan and will feature in his forthcoming book project provisionally titled Unnatural Disaster – Imaging Destruction in Japan from Hiroshima to Fukushima and Beyond.

The talented Brophy, a manga and anime expert, as well as an artist who works across film, video, and music, was recently listed by The Guardian art critic, Andrew Frost, as one of Australia’s ten ‘most important artists of the past 30 years’.
