MARI KATAYAMA


BYSTANDER



October 8 - November 6, 2016


Benesse Art Gallery

Naoshima (Japan)









From the website: 

The artist will show an installation consisting of pictures and objects inspired by Naoshima's bunraku puppet theater, performed by women on the island. Along with the installation, she is planning to hold workshops to teach participants how to make “oil works,” a concept of preserving personal mementos in bottles of oil. The artist will also stage events during which the artist herself, but also island residents, and other participants are encouraged to develop their own means of expression.
