Cindy Mochizuki: Cave To Dream
Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond, BC - Sep 29 – Nov 17
Following a brief residency in Akita-ken, Japan, in 2017, Vancouver artist Cindy Mochizuki developed the multimedia installation on view. Her work includes four short experimental films featuring hand-drawn animation together with live performance storytelling, all set within a theatrical environment of costumed and porcelain game pieces. Cave to Dream speaks of the artist’s interest in the cycles of nature – of life and death – and the world of the spirits evoked in Japanese folklore and rituals.
