to make it so
to make it so is a ceremony for a Latvian singer, Mārtiņš Freimanis, who spent his childhood in the town of Aizpute and died at age 33 in 2011. In this project Tsuchimoto brought the audience to the place where he grew up and sang one of his famous songs, "Lai būtu tā" (to make it so). The performance is a devotion to the descended as well as a rite of passage for the Japanese artist to step in the local society.
