Junko Wada: Documentation and Installation
Last year's IN TRANSIT Festival was not the only stop for Junko
Wada's project "Process Vol. 2 - Reflection <Punkt und Linie
- Berlin>" as she went on to perform at various private
and public art venues, and in museums and galleries. At IN TRANSIT
04, Junko Wada is now presenting a print documentation of her work
in book form, with photos for this House of World Cultures publication
provided by Berlin-based African photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi,
well known through his long-term project on mega-cities, and Gerhard Kassner
from Berlin, who concentrates on theatre, art and portrait photography. "To
me the movement of writing resembles that of a dance performance.
The stroke of the brush and the act of taking in breath are closely
connected. In this way the act of writing becomes a stylised dance.
My dance originally came from my painting and now it has become
transformed into my writings." (Junko Wada)
A video installation of "Process Vol. 2 - Reflection <Punkt
und Linie - Berlin>" has also been created for eleven screens
and will be shown in the House of World Cultures during IN TRANSIT.
