Open ProgramSummer Open Lab Hana Sawada: A 360-degree Detour
August 1–October 18, 2020
Sawada Hana (b. 1991) focuses on small unidentified objects in photographs and other printed matter. Using a variety of methods to analyze and examine these things, Sawada makes installations that showcase this process. Although the obscure and indistinct tend to make us anxious, Sawada neither ignores nor eliminates anything for this reason. Sawada accepts a given entity as it is, and allows her imagination to run free, and when there is no answer, she questions the meaning of continuing to consider it. The exhibition will provide viewers an opportunity to enjoy a variety of scenes as they make a series of detours – none of which are wrong.
