Moon and Tides – In Between Hong Kong and Nagasaki
In collaboration with Mariko Tsuchiyama
“In my last show in Hong Kong, I asked people who came, ‘ When do you wear jewellery?’ Most of whom said ‘ I wear jewellery when I want to give myself a lift.’ or ‘ I wear jewellery when I want to be confident.’ Those responses asked me, ‘How does the emotion move in our mind?’ ‘How does jewellery get touched with us?”
