opening speech by Menno Fitski (curator Asia Art, Rijksmuseum)
|A view from Arnemuiden to Awashima is both a distant and close view of the artist's 'story telling'.
As much as one is physically and mentally separated from others, Hamano feels strongly in living
with the interconnectedness of the world.
|Works from three field-research-based projects in fishing villages, Arnemuiden (2004-2006), Kubotsu (2007-2008) and the remote island of Awashima (2013), are placed into a space, in a playful manner, where they become a new scenery.
'Bread holding girl' (water memory mapping / 2005), 'a raccoon dog the little boy'(i saw a dream of Kubotsu. / 2008), ‘floater’ (MIRRORED MEMORIES / 2009), 'Satchan' (Satchan's midnight garden / 2009) and 'Kokiriko and Akaoni (Hamano Oinarisan a pine wood tale / 2013) are fictive figures which derive themselves from reality.
What if 'bread holding girl' from Arnemuiden meets 'Kokiriko and Akaoni' in a deep pine forest surrounded by Japanese Inland Sea? Where would such an encounter lead their journey?

Hamano Oinarisan A pine wood tale
The Setouchi Trienale 2013, Awashima
Hamano Oinarisan is a Japanese Inari god and her shrine near the beach on Awashima. In this empty shrine, Hamano Oinarisan tells 'A pine wood tale' in which a trickster-like child and a red ogre are playing together.
I have re-arranged fragments of memories from the island into an imaginary tale which unfolds around a pine wood, into an intimite shrine space.
This spatial work consists of wall drawing, sound, animation and bookwork.

chapter 3 2008
KAAP, Fort Ruigehoek, Groenekan, Holland
the third chapter of the exhibition from Kubotsu project.
two rooms of the fort Ruigehoek have turned into a way to the 'chinkapin forest'. during the Kubotsu project, 'chinkapin forest' located in the mountains of Kubotsu appeared in a story told by an old man. since the artist could not find the forest after her search in the mountains in Kubotsu, 'chinkapin forest' has become an imaginary forest in a dream world of Kubotsu, in Holland.
wood, chinkapin nuts, salt, mirrored text on the floor, animation/video, photos
(approx. H3 x W12 x D14m)
animation/video stills are here.

chapter 2 2008
OPEN STUDIO, CCA Kitakyushu, Japan
the second chapter of the exhibition from Kubotsu project.
in chapter 1, the work was meant to be closely experienced in Kubotsu village, the context where direct sources for works lay. in chapter 2, a part of the work jumped out of this context and placed itself in a neutral studio space far away from Kubotsu. here the work was intended to be experienced with distance, as far memories from elsewhere.
materials: approx. 400 photos and cut-out photos, fishing gut, binoculars
(approx. H4 x W5 x D8m)

chapter 1 2008
the old Kubotsu clinic, Kubotsu, Kochi, Japan
the first chapter of the exhibition from Kubotsu project.
the old Kubotsu clinic was transformed into a space where memories of Kubotsu village from different generations playfully encountered each other. drawing, animation, sound, and photo works based on collected stories, sound and images of the village both from the past and the present, became a constellation work. a new world of Kubotsu appeared in this spatial arrangement where reality and fantasy continuously merge and disperse.
(approx. H2.3 x W3 x D10m)
about four hundred photos printed on inkjet paper. old photos collected in the village and newly taken photos are spread out in the space. some photos are arranged with cut-outs and fishing gut.
Fukutarosan's room. the doctor's room was separately created so that his strong existence did not appear too dominant in the context of the presentation. you could view the doctor's chair through the peeping hole under the orange TL tube light.
drawings on paper and wall.
see some details.
different sequences of animation/video work were screened on five monitors and one screen outside the building.
