There & Here

Some time ago I offered Yuriko, who is my daughter-in-law, to have a showing of our work together. Being a member of the WAAC, I suggested to have the exhibition here in the Dignam Gallery, the main event space of the WAAC. The exhibition has also now become a fare-well present to Yuriko, who together with her husband, will return home to Tokyo in early 2023.

After many conversations and discussions, we realized we have something very fundamental in common, namely, being an immigrant. For both of us – although age & cultural background (Switzerland and Japan) are starkly different – the immigrant experience is a large part of our daily life, and a reality which left traces in our work. This “reality in common” is the leitmotiv of our show.

There & Here presents the results of our individual exploration “of belonging to two places, of being of two minds, of being marked by two cultures”.
