Rumiko hagiwara

at Arti et Amicitiae

Ghost in silence

Video performance, 20min.

Throughout Hagiwara’s narrative in ‘Ghost in Silence’ – which refers to the literal translation of the Chinese characters describing the word humour – she investigates the meaning, and misreading of humour when crossing cultural boundaries, following the concept of migration,  misunderstandings and the displacement of her own sense of Japanese humour within a western (art) context. 

Ghost in silence consists of compiled narratives and its visual references, written, narrated and performed by herself.
