Miwa Yanagi
The goddess and the god separate under the peach tree

Loock Galerie is pleased to host Miwa Yanagi ́s solo exhibition showing her new photographic series „The goddess and the god separate under the peach tree“.
Ten years ago, Miwa Yanagi represented Japan at the Venice Biennale with "windswept Woman" and has since developed various theatre productions. Her play "Zero Hour: Tokyo Rose’s last tape", for which she wrote the text, conceptualized the staging, as well as designed the costumes, was shown in Japan in 2015 and then travelled to the USA.

In „The goddess and the god separate under the peach tree“ Yanagi associates Japanese Mythology with Fukushima, Japan ́s last major tragedy.
