Hamano's dense, layered bookwork collects her drawings, photographs and mirrored texts in a playful, associative manner. Made for the artist's solo exhibition at Sieboldhuis in 2009, Leiden, the poetic narratives of text and image are inspired by two fishing villages in Japan and the Netherlands. A colourful, nuanced and fresh world of imaginaire.
