2011-
「Don’t Follow the Wind」は、長期にわたる国際展だ。この展覧会は、2011年の福島第一原子力発電所の事故後、放射能に汚染された帰還困難区域内で行われており、住民が、住居、土地、コミュニティーから引き離された場所といえる。そして、12組の参加アーティストによる新作が、元住民から貸し出された4カ所の建物に設置された。そこは、すべて原発事故の災害の直後に避難をさせられた場所。したがって展覧会は、一般の立ち入りができない地域のため、開催中だが見に行くことができない。封鎖が解除される「未来」が来たとき、初めて鑑賞が可能となる。
2011-
“Don’t Follow the Wind” is a long-term international exhibition. It takes place inside the restricted Fukushima Exclusion Zone - the area that was evacuated in the wake of the 2011 disaster due to radiation contamination near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, separating residents from their homes, land, and community. New works developed by participating 12 artists have been installed in the zone at four sites that were lent by former residents, all of which are contaminated and were evacuated immediately after the disaster. As the zone remains inaccessible to the public, the exhibition will be ongoing but largely invisible, only to be viewed in the future, if and when the ban on entering the area is being lifted.

Don't Follow the Wind: A Walk in Fukushima
20th Biennale of Sydney, Carriageworks
18 March 2016 – 5 June 2016

The curatorial collective of Don't Follow the Wind developed a 360 degree video, A Walk in Fukushima, to make visible some of the inaccessible, irradiated sites of the exhibition inside the Fukushima exclusion zone, however the artworks in the project remain unseen, obscured by bodies of the artists and curators. The video includes the account of a displaced resident whose home is heavily contaminated and his ambivalence about having worked for TEPCO the power company which own the nuclear plant that had a meltdown. The video was displayed inside headsets made by the mother, father and grandmother of artist Bontaro Dokuyama who all live in Fukushima near the exclusion zone in an area deemed 'safe' for inhabitation but the low level contamination has radically changed their everyday way of life. They constructed the headset with objects based on their present needs and desire to find a more ordinary life in the future. As part of the installation decontaminated furniture from an unopened cafe on one of the sites of Don't Follow the Wind in the zone, which was planning to hold its grand opening on 8 April 2011 but has been postponed indefinitely due to the disaster.

Don't Follow the Wind: Non-Visitor Center
Watari Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo
19 September 2015 – 3 November 2015

A traveling exhibition related the ongoing inaccessible exhibition Don't Follow the Wind, taking place inside the restricted Fukushima exclusion zone. As there is no clear timeline for public access to the sites in Fukushima, perhaps 5 years, 10 years, or decades - a period of time that could stretch beyond our lifetime, the Non-Visitor Center is a migrating outpost curated by Chim↑Pom, Kenji Kubota, Eva and Franco Mattes and Jason Waite. The Non-Visitor Center included an Information Counter designed by Tsubasa Kato staffed by former residents from Fukushima. The main section was the Interpretation Station which an inaccessible exhibition inside of Watari that could only be seen by climbing scaffolding and looking through a window into the gallery which contained new related works to the projects in Fukushima developed by the 12 participating artists. Filmmaker Sion Sono created an installation around a discussion between the participating artists, also included in the show live streaming camera feeds from Fukushima and archival material from the project.
