First in a series of interventions by Kanako Ishii
“Re-Landscape” is a long-term curtain project by Kanako Ishii that captures memories of views from windows that change as time goes on, through processes such as urban development, natural disaster, war damage or leaving one’s own place. In her ongoing intervention at The Institute for Endotic Research, Ishii’s curtains will be layered one after another in the storefront window to represent the four seasons. It will develop through a walk based on research about the neighborhood, especially regarding the history of the Bohemian refugees who fled to Rixdorf in the 18th century, and will eventually become a situated visual archive.
Kanako Ishii (b. 1984) is a Japanese visual artist born in Tokyo who spent her early childhood in Frankfurt am Main. Since 2012 she is based in Berlin. Ishii has held solo exhibitions at Künstlerhaus Bethanien (2018), Japanese-German Center Berlin (2015), Goethe-Institut Tokyo (2014), among others. http://kanakoishii.com
