Miho Kajioka: And, Where Did the Peacocks Go? Book Launch & Signing. Thu 27 Sep, 18.30

Please join us and meet Japanese artist Miho Kajioka who is presenting the first publisher edition of her wonderful artist's book And, Where Did the Peacocks Go?. After 2 self published instalments, the French art publishers the (M) éditions produced a paperback version in an edition of 400 copies, and limited edition of 40 including  print.

 

 

Miho Kajioka's own words about her project: " Right after the Fukushima nuclear plant accident, I found a blog about peacocks that were left in the evacuation zone, within the 20 km limit. I started imagining those peacocks, walking around the empty town with their beautiful wings spread. The image I had in my mind seemed so far away from what was going on in Fukushima. It was as if two different layers of images – the disaster scene and beautiful peacocks – were overlapping with each other without being unified. I started to see different layers in almost everything after the disaster in 2011."
