Takako Yamaguchi, Haruka Yamada
Drawing an ambiguity

2019/04/09(Tue) – 05/06(Mon)

“Drawing an ambiguity” is an art exhibition of two artists stayedartists stayed at Nida Art Colony in Nida in 2018: Takako Yamaguchi (stayed in February 2018) and Haruka Yamada (stayed in April 2018). Experimental artworks of two artists during their stays in Nida will be shown in the exhibition as a new form of work after re-thinking and re-production in response to the space of HAGISO.

Curonian Spit where Nida situates was formed about 3rd millennium BC. A glacial moraine served as its foundation; winds and sea currents later contributed enough sand to raise and keep the formation above sea level. Waves casted on a long sandy beach, ridgelines of sand dune that change the shape every day by the wind, a long road to the mainland, a border that can not be crossed without complicated procedures… this place inevitably made two artists think about “drawing”. Through lines that two artists draw – or could not be drawn -, the exhibition illuminates the outline of our living world and asks about its ambiguity.
