Humbert has filmed very lovely, ordinary daily scenes in Japan, where I was actually born, and spent most of my live until I moved to Berlin. His film aroused mixed feelings in me, both tugging at my heart, while watching my home country and my town, but at the same time I was confused to be wondering whether it is really the place where I used to be. The answer is yes and no. This film is a travelling essay by him actually, and it is an artwork. If there were no sequences with colours between each short scene, I would have been struck in a somewhat dizzy state, struggling with my feelings.



Takano began her art by painting and later creating installations. She tries to interpret and recognize an object, by attempting to measure the distance to it and through creating and understanding a relationship to an object. Since 2007, she has worked on her project “Happiness -Accident and Control”. Recently, she has often worked with words and expressions using language.

Sie graduated from Tama Art University in Tokyo in 1989 and was a research student in 1990. She lived and worked in Tokyo and Yokohama until 2006 and has since been living and working in Berlin.
