CAAK & Kapo Creator in Residence 7: Emi Kodama
5 July 2012 -17 September 2012
Canadian artist Emi Kodama has been living and working in Belgium since graduating as a laureate of the Higher Institute of Fine Art (HISK), a post-graduate program in Ghent. Her work explores the every day through stories that take shape in a multidisciplinary practice that includes video, photography, drawing, writing, and performance. She is second generation Japanese and has never lived in Japan, and this will be her first time being here for three months. During her residency in Kanazawa, she would like to deepen her understanding of Japanese culture and has a particular interest in traditional gardens and how their philosophy influences daily life.
