The process of ideological formation that occurred during the Meiji-era modernization campaign at the end of the 19th century was driven in part by the clash of science and faith. This violent intermingling of cultures took on unique characteristics in Japan, yet it is also a universal phenomenon that has recurred throughout human history. In “Sujigane-to-Ennichi,” Hidekado Goto reflects on how these traces of the past continue to influence us and inform our thinking about the transcendent through a mix of historical events, family memories from the artist’s hometown of Ibaraki, and the story of two women. Goto, who began his career as a beatmaker in the late 1990s, works in a variety of mediums, including video, music, drawing, and installation.
