About the Event
I am proud to be invited to the 10th Biwako Biennale in Japan with my multimedia installation Incubator of E@motions - we all come from this heart, set up at the historic former Ban's residence from the Edo period.
Biwako Biennale, this year organized already for the tenth time, was one of the first Japanese art events to be organized outside of a museum or a gallery, and it has undoubtedly paved the way for similar exhibitions and festivals that can be found all over Japan nowadays.
This year's Biennale is devoted to the theme of Origin.
I am replying to its challenge with Incubator of E@motions - We all come from this heart.... In words of Yoko Tanaka, the theme - 起源〜ORIGIN marks the 2022 10th edition of the BIWAKO Biennale as a journey to reflect on our many origins, and to reach the origin that lies deep within our hearts....
Curated by Yoko Nakata, this art festival invites approximately 70 artists from Japan and abroad to collaborate with local citizens of Ōmihachiman and Hikone. In both cities, abandoned Japanese houses are repaired, cleaned and brought back to life with art: they are then opened to the public as BIWAKO Biennale venues.
