Chikako Yamashiro @ Dundee Contemporary Arts
22 August 2021 - 21 November 2021
Chikako Yamashiro’s work spans performance, filmmaking and photography, often employing her own and other bodies as vehicles through which to carry stories from overlooked or unheard voices.
At the centre of this exhibition, set amongst other selected works, is the European premiere of Yamashiro’s latest film Chinbin Western: Representation of the Family. This artwork takes the form of an allegorical tale that weaves together comic satire, mining landscapes, opera, traditional Japanese theatre and domestic lives.
This exhibition, and Yamashiro’s work in the broadest sense, focuses on marginalised voices, bodies and souls in the East Asian region, addressing universal subjects such as identity and historical memory through uniquely poetic imaginings.
