ISHIWATA BIENNALE 2009 in THE REPUBLIC OF ISHIWATA
“THE REPUBLIC OF ISHIWATA”
Imagine I am one country, and you are another.
Imagine we have the magic to change the world by daily interpersonal/international communication.
Imagine this is not fantasy but in fact a reality.
If I try to tell you who I am, can you please tell me who you are?
The Ishiwata Biennale is an interpersonal/international art festival, that is taking place in The Republic of Ishiwata. Since its foundation, it experiments with various creative communications among artists and even visitors. Mari Ishiwata, founder of the Ishiwata Biennale, has asked the artists to create works based on the communications that they’ve had with her. She has also asked them to face to who they are ( how they live their daily life, what is the background of their life history etc… ) , as same as what she does in her own creation. The Ishiwata Biennale 2009 consists of two parts: exhibition and performance shared by nineteen individual or collective artists.
