Open ProgramSummer Open Lab Hana Sawada: A 360-degree Detour

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.

The Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art (also known as GENBI for short) will temporary close on December 28, 2020 in order to renovate the entire facility, which was built over 30 years ago.

While carrying on the ideas and designs of the building’s architect Kurokawa Kisho, the renovation project is intended to restore the facility’s basic functions as a museum as well as redesigning some areas and creating new spaces. Ahead of the project, we present a special three-part exhibition and workshops called GENBI Recollections to etch the original form of the museum into viewers’ memories.
