The Stick & The Stars

Reconcilliation Exhibition

On Monday 17th. July 2006, Akira tSurukame opened the Reconciliation Exhibition in Galway.  The exhibition featured artists Leonie King, Heather King, Mathiew Phinn, and a documentary of the 'Reconciliation' directed by Tom Flanagan Snr, filmed and edited by ENSO artists Kevin & Tom Flanagan.

The 'Reconciliation' happened in August 2004 when a fateful event occurred after a series of coincidences led Akira tSurukame and his family to Oranmore Castle to meet the man who had killed his father. Commander Bill torpoed his Japanese Uboat the I-166 on July 17 1944. Akira opened the exhibition on the same date 62 years later, accompanied by Commander Bill King and his family.


Project06 was a Galway Artists Arts Initiative running simultaneous to Galway Arts Festival '06.
