Eiko Otake, A BODY IN PLACES (visual art)
Sept. 5th 6 - 8pm (Opening Reception), September 5 – October 24, 2019, Gallery Hours: Mon-Sat 10am - 6pm
, Eiko Otake
(who has performed as Eiko & Koma for more than forty years) performs in, on, and with epic landscapes along with her 'collaborators:' irradiated Fukushima, a nighttime swarm of moths in the Kanakadea Forrest, her recently deceased mother at her funeral, and in the changing city of Hong Kong soon after the 2014 Umbrella Revolution. On opening night, Eiko will perform a solo in and around the gallery.
A new, three-channel video of Eiko performing with the spring waters and deserts of California, shot by Alexis Moh and produced at the IEA, will be on view during her T:BA performances of The Duet Project: Distance is Malleable.
This unique Japanese artist performs with a longevity that is unparalleled. Portland is lucky to have her and her work presented, and we highly recommend seeing her gallery installation and/or her duet performance while you can!
