Mother and son, our collaborative works, Rei Inoue and Riku

When the East Japan Earthquake struck in March 2011, Rei Inoue was working as an artist in Japan. She struggled with the uncertainty and confusion, and the very real threat of nature.

​During Rei’s pregnancy a midwife told her “When you lose your way you should ask for guidance from your child in the womb, because an unborn baby is the existence that is closest to god”. Spurred by this response, Rei was guided to pursue a collaborative practice with her son.

Using natural materials including 'Kakishibu' Japanese persimmon tannin, 'Bengara' earth colours made from Australian soil and Japanese handmade paper, the resulting exhibition is a spontaneous and unique exploration of artistic experimentation.

“When my son paints something I can listen to his feelings although he is not talkative. A toy car runs on paper and it draws a vibrant line. This is an answer; we can learn from children and we can grow with children. This is one of answers that can resolve complicated issues in the world. I hope to share such an answer in this exhibition".

Launch: Thursday 6 July, 2pm to 4pm

The opening launch for this exhibition will be accompanied by Yanchakko, a Japanese family choir group and Tomi Muramatsu, Yuko Ikeda, a live piano performance. All welcome.
