A Body in a Museum is a new durational work by Eiko commissioned by The Met for its iconic spaces. Using her body, a projector, and her archive of images of the irradiated landscapes of Fukushima, Japan, over the course of 3 consecutive Sundays she will interrogate the physical and conceptual architecture of each of the 3 structures that make up the Metropolitan Museum. By staining the walls of each building with projections as well as her physical presence, Eiko will insist on the porousness of the institution, collapsing space and time to expand the boundaries of the place.

Eiko and Koma received an ACC fellowship in 2003 for travel to Cambodia to offer workshops and performances in Phnom Penh.
