White Stag Block, Light Court Commons

Suspended Moment captures the human implications of nuclear technology through a sculpture installation, magnified by a Butoh performance, soundscape, video projections, and poetry.

At the center of the installation are life-sized sculptures of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, created by the artist Yukiyo Kawano. Yuki was born and raised in Hiroshima, a third-generation atomic bomb survivor. She creates her sculptures from WWII-era kimonos that belonged to her grandmother, and sews them together with her hair, melding the DNA of generations of atomic bomb survivors.

This year, Suspended Moment commemorates the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki by performing on August 9, 2017 as part of the Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki: From Despair to Hope Event in Portland, Oregon.
