We are delighted to welcome Koyuki Kazahaya   from April to June 2018 to stay and work at basis within the framework of Air_Frankfurt and Air Antwerpen. Koyuki Kazahaya (*1987 Ibaraki, Japan) talks about her artistic practice and her project ideas for the three months – residency in Frankfurt.

„The main themes of my work are memories, sequences and trails in the images attached to specific locations. I seek locations that have been transformed by human activity and abandoned after natural resources were depleted or a disaster happened reflecting a confrontation between humanity and nature and furthermore involving elements such as cultural identity, memories or aesthetical evolution. I combine landscapes from Japan and from the countries where I have been living or traveling in Europe.“

The talk will be in english.

The air_frankfurt program was founded by the city of frankfurt’s department for culture in 1990 with the goal to foster the exchange between culturally interested and active cities.  Since 2016 Air_Frankfurt has been supervised by the production and exhibition platform basis e.V.
