The research-based art project Tea Talks by Japanese artist Kyoco Taniyama at Bradwolff Projects is in collaboration with the BijlmAIR residency programme of the CBK Zuid-Oost arts centre and the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam. The title Tea Talks refers to the conversations Taniyama had with immigrants of different nationalities living in the Bijlmer. The exhibition will show the collected documentation and a special tea table will be placed in the project space. During the opening on July 17 participants will join the Tea Talks performance.
Who am I and where do I belong? Is the central question in the work of Kyoco Taniyama. Inspired by the Japanese concept ‘shozai’, which means ‘address’ as well as ‘existence’, Taniyama tries to search for the relationship between our identity and the world that surrounds us.
