After a month maternity break I started working as an artist. This exhibition is the first one to work with a little baby. I had to leave the little one to my husband but he seemed to be ok without mama.
“The title of the exhibition Otenba is the Japanese word for tomboy. Supposedly it is derived from the Dutch word otembaar. Otenba presents the works of Japanese artists who currently reside in Holland. In their work we look for a reflection on the way a new and individualistic environment influences their creative behaviour. Holland being their new home, they have the chance to explore their own limits here without the direct binds of their original culture. They are somewhere in between cultures, one might say, and present new work at Roodkapje.”
