Bow-handshake

 

In this work Sweden and Japan meets, like two strangers at a dinner party, exchanging titles and superficial information. Through a collage of post-it notes Tsuchimoto presents small details and grand narratives, playing with our view on foreign cultures. Belonging to a nation, we all mirror ourselves in reflections across the border - similarities and dichotomies, simplifications and exoticism. Piece by piece, these stories get attached to us – constructing our identity.
