The Thing I’ll Be Doing For The Rest Of My Life
Blast Theory is a collective artist group formed by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr, and Nick Tandavanitj in London in 1991. The group has continuously pulled down the boundary between the public and the private through various media, creating a new space for public art. The group won the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize in 2016. The Thing I’ll Be Doing For The Rest Of My Life was created in line with a video of the same title. The work shows the process of pulling up a trawler that sank after the Tsunami in 2011 and moving it to a park in a village in Japan. By revealing the collaboration of random people against global disaster, the work alludes to efforts of healing trauma caused by the Tsunami and recovering the community.
