We are delighted to announce that, together with one of the most acclaimed Scotland-based contemporary artists Ilana Halperin, we have officially launched Geologic Intimacy (Yu no Hana), a new art-science project between Japanese island Kyushu and Scotland.
Now the preparatory phase of the project has begun, and we will keep updating on any news or reports about the project over the course of the project period until the actual exhibition/event happening in autumn 2016 at Fujiya Gallery Hanayamomo, Beppu, and in spring 2017 at Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen.
We would like to thank all the warm and enthusiastic support we have received so far from our partners and beyond both in Japan and the UK. We would also like to acknowledge that this project is funded by Creative Scotland, Peacock Visual Arts and NPO BEPPU PROJECT. We are very grateful for their support.
