Special exhibition in Memory of Kana Kou @ DAIKANYAMA T-SITE anjin café
2020. Sep.1st (Tue)- Dec. 10th(Thu)
We announce the exhibition at Anjin café, Special exhibition in Memory of Kana Kou, who passed away in this spring.
Kou had produced her artworks, putting herself in the midst of nature through her own action of mountain climbing or diving in the sea. These bodily experiences, together with the feelings and the memories, unease or awe for the nature have been crystalized in her works, through deep understanding, to recognize the places as beautiful places.
Kou participated in the Artist in Residence at Shodoshima Island in 2011. Fascinated by the charm of the nature as well as by the generous community of local people, she worked and based at the place to create her works. The Secret of Hanasuwajima Island, conical installation created in Shodoshima in 2013 was the most impressive work of Setouchi Triennale, attracting much attention in the whole world of art.
Her serious illness could not prevent her passion to continue the artistic activities. Kou continued to live as herself with bright heart, while she had even integrated her own disease into the motif of her creative vitality.
We are pleased to exhibit her works featuring mainly the seascape and mountain which include the precious pieces from Shodoshima island.
