Project 72 Steps: Go (5)
Nov 1, 2019 at 8:00 am - Nov 8, 2019 at 5:00 pmFree entrance
“Go” stands for the number five in Japanese, and it’s also the name of the first exhibition of the 72 STEPS project. It’s inspired by the tradition of tango-no-sekku (one of the five ceremonies of gosekku that were held at the Japanese imperial court), celebrated as Children’s Day in modern Japan and decorated with koi fish wind cones (koinobori). To create this multidisciplinary work which includes photography, drawings, graphic design and performance, Yulia Skogoreva and Olga Gerasim collaborated with an award-winning Japanese dancer and choreographer Miwa Okuno. Her practice attempts to disassemble the body in order to become free. In “Go,” Okuno sourced her inspiration in the traditional Japanese butoh dance practices allowing her to visibly float in the sky together with the koinobori. The exhibition will highlight the collaboration between the three artists through an immersive experience where visitors will be invited to participate and activate installations.
