- Statement -
The Airin neighbourhood in Osaka’s Nishinari area, also commonly called Kamagasaki or Nishinari, is known as a place inhabited by day laborers and homeless people. For the artist, this neighborhood is seemingly unchained by common regulations and has its own law. It is in this community that the artist believes she could capture man’s honest existence. A small wooden shed is located in the middle of the exhibition in recollection of the homeless community in Airin.
