A group show at Brutus
Keilweg 10-18, Rotterdam, NL
From 2nd of Sep until 19th of Nov.
Official opening Friday 1st of September.
Petromelancholia examines the enormous consequences of a life beyond oil, the magnitude of which many do not yet realize. Unlike the many exhibitions that sing about doom scenarios or kick in the open doors of the climate crisis, Petromelancholia reflects on the legacy of the oil age and the new meaning that this past will irrevocably acquire. What has oil brought us, materially and especially culturally, and what might disappear or change?
Such a complex phenomenon only comes into the limelight if there is room for different perspectives. Art is a master discipline when it comes to anticipating and navigating change. That is why Petromelancholia, curated by Alexander Klose (research collective Beauty of Oil) brings together 24 contemporary artists from different cultural backgrounds and generations.
It’s hard to think of a better location for Petromelancholia than at BRUTUS – situated in the Rotterdam harbor. In few places will the impact of the energy transition be more visible than here. This is therefore the most appropriate place for critical self-reflection with a good dose of melancholy and nostalgia. The exhibition reflects an urgency that has never before been felt this strong.
With works by (among others): Monira Al Qadiri (KWT), Yuri Ancarani (ITA), Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck (VEN/GER), Kevin van Braak and Ipeh Nur (NLD/IDN), Diann Bauer (USA), Tanja Engelberts (NLD), Christoph Girardet (GER), Rumiko Hagiwara (JPN/NLD), Aaditi Joshi (IND), Alain Resnais (FRA), Sanaz Sohrabi (IRN/CAN), Rachel Youn (USA).
Far Away Hopeful Grand Land
Solo show at CAVE-AYUMIGALLERY
9 April (Fri.) ー 21 May (Sun.) 2023
※オープニングイベント: 2023年4月14日(金) 19:00〜
CAVE-AYUMIGALLERYでは2023年4月14日（金）より、Rumiko Hagiwara（萩原留美子）の日本での初個展『Far Away Hopeful Grand Land』を開催いたします。アムステルダムを拠点に長く活動する萩原は、近年、日本人としてヨーロッパに身を置く上での経験から生まれる疑問や文化の差異をテーマに、作品制作を行ってきました。日常生活で見かけるありふれた物事や不合理をあえて強調することや、偶然的に遭遇した物事をもとに、写真やビデオ、インスタレーション、パフォーマンスなどの多様な表現で、微妙な、そして時に遊び心のある詩的表現へと変換しています。
Rumiko Hagiwara (萩原留美子) 1979年、群馬県生まれ。東京造形大学卒業後に渡蘭、ライクスアカデミー・アーティスト・イン・レジデンスを終了後、現在もアムステルダムを拠点に活動している。 主な個展に「Ghost in Silence」（2017年、Van Zijll Langhoud Gallery、アムステルダム）「If you make that kind of joke, then we call it a lie」（2014年、Jeanine Hofland gallery、アムステルダム）近年のグループ展に、「The Botanical Revolution」(2021年、ユトレヒト・セントラル美術館)「Elsewheres within here」(2019年、Framer Framed、アムステルダム)などがある。

From Amazon to Olympic is an exhibition co-curated by the Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio in Sapporo and Barim in Gwangju, held from Dec 10 to 28, 2021 simultaneously at two places. Participating artists exhibit (related but) different works at Barim and Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio, respectively, and are aware that no one can come to see both exhibitions.
The world stops, but Amazon, the world’s largest shopping mall, keeps moving. Closely looking at their logo, you see an arrow between A and Z. In addition to the meaning of selling everything from A to Z, they seem to name their company from the western view of the Amazon River, its grandeur and exoticism.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games were held in 2021 despite the pandemic, and even with borders closed due to Japan’s policy, and the deteriorating relations between Korea and Japan. The Olympic shopping mall, which sells the ideal of world peace and harmony, never closes like the Amazon shopping mall. Recently, US President Biden said he might boycott the Beijing Olympics for diplomatic reasons. The Olympics are clearly more than just exchanging culture and sports.
This exhibition throws a question mark on the naive and harmonious words ‘international’ and ‘exchange,’ dealing from the image of the Amazon, which is considered the unknown, the most distant world from Asia, and the last hope of the earth to that of the ‘international exchange’ event called the Olympics.
It is also an extension of the previous White Letters project, a residency and presentation in March in which Ban Jaeha and Jung Eugene participated.
From Amazon to Olympic invites Ban Jaeha and Jung Eugene, who participated in the undeparted online journey to Sapporo of White Letters, Gim Ikhyun (Gim Ikhyun and Hyun Woomin) who newly joins to a new journey, Mihara Soichiro from Japan, and Hagiwara Rumiko from the Netherlands. Their works in two venues are different but connected, and the two curators Kang Min-hyung and Odai Mami contributed texts.
Although it is impossible to see both exhibitions, as it has always been under the pandemic, there may be a connection to be found between the two exhibitions and the two distant worlds, imagining the invisible exhibition landscape beyond.

Gardens have appealed to our imagination for centuries. We associate them with harmonious bliss, a place to witness the cycle of life and death, a place of contemplation, and a refuge from the worries and cares of daily life. And certainly in these times of being cooped up at home, there is a strong desire to have one’s own bit of greenery.
The botanical revolution, on the necessity of art and gardening is the story of the garden as a fertile source of inspiration for artists. Throughout the centuries, artists, writers, poets and philosophers have described, depicted and defined the garden in constantly changing ways. Gerrit Komrij – whose 1990 Huizinga lecture is the source of the exhibition title – described how, for much of history, the idea of the garden was closely interrelated with changing mentalities and intellectual controversies. Gardens remain a rich source of inspiration for contemporary art, though the prevailing theme is no longer romantic longing but a call to reshape our relationship with the earth. How do today’s artists reflect on themes such as primeval paradise, vegetable gardens, botany and climate change? Surprising classic and modern examples reveal the deep roots of the exhibition’s themes.

This invisible thing
UV-pen on paper, UV-pen, in leftover frame
– signed with UV -pen on the back –
“…In her art practice Rumiko Hagiwara (1979, Japan) reveals the poetry of the unseen, and ordinary. She uses light as a brush to highlight what is hidden in the dark, and poses the dark caused by shadow as an object of reflection.
The concept of visibility versus invisibility and how language translates the unseen, is a re-curing theme in her art works, consisting of photography, installations, videos and drawings. In a subtle and humorous manner Hagiwara plays within her manner of display with the exhibition dogma’s of western art history, turning the dusty and ordinary into something more sparkling.
The concept of an invisible virus dominating human interaction world wide has inspired Hagiwara to make a new series of ‘invisible drawings’. A series based on the size of left over frames in her studio found when cleaning up – like all of us – during the lock down earlier this year. What started as an idea for a doodle-like drawing of running horses seen from different angles, got lost in the act of drawing with the invisible lines from a UV-pen. Becoming what is only visible when exposing the drawing to UV-light, eventually disappearing forever in the passing of time in the brightness of light …..”

Featuring “Dina from Egypt”
The three-day symposium In the pause of a gesture there might be an echo, which was due to take place from May 1 to May 3, 2020, would have examined artistic affiliations with heritage in a European context through a lively exchange of all kinds of understandings, perceptions, and experiences. The main feature of our symposium was to be interconnection and cooperation: “to allow for various practices from the cultural domain to touch each other and to move from their own fields of interests.” We were looking forward to everyone meeting and mingling and differing or fusing into new collaborations. The spread of COVID-19 interrupted the process and steered instantly all movements. Like everybody, we had to readjust. We decided, quite briskly, to move the symposium from the wonderful space of puntWG to an online environment. In a “mail to all,” without offering a clear structure or time frame, we asked the participants to rework their prepared presentations for an online format. Then the questions came pouring in. The practical and contextual questions of our participants urged us to put into words the process we were submerged in.

Elsewheres Within Here, investigates what we welcome, refuse, or overlook in marking the boundaries of spaces we call ‘home’ – our bodies, houses, and countries. The exhibition presents works by eleven artists, all of whom are based in the Netherlands, and yet each comes from or thinks with places beyond. The works gather stories around errant movements of plants, animals, objects, and symbols across different cultures and times, and through unexpected intimacies.
Curator Jo-Lene Ong refers to knowledge and languages of the region she comes from, by framing the exhibition through the Malay word ‘tanah-air’; a term that is similar to the notion of ‘homeland’ but also connects with notions of both land (tanah) and water (air), thus suggesting a more elemental and fluid sense of belonging.
Water flows through this exhibition as a connecting medium that brings different worlds into relation, and as a metaphor to experience ourselves less as isolated entities but as watery bodies traversing space and time.
The exhibition borrows its title from the critically acclaimed book Elsewhere, Within Here: Immigration, Refugeeism and the Boundary Event (2012) by renowned filmmaker, feminist and post-colonial thinker Trinh T. Minh-ha*. Working through scenes of travel across national borders, Minh-ha addresses perennial and yet ever more pressing questions such as who is welcomed where? And, what does it mean to feel out of place in a country you call home?
*The name Framer Framed is derived from a work by Trinh T. Minh-ha.

Opening 1 June 17:00
‘Mono/ Butsu’ is a new sound installation by Rumiko Hagiwara based on a Japanese Character that found its origin in China, meaning “object” however by its travel through time and borders new connotations were added to the character. Within the installation Hagiwara reads out loud its multiple interpretations, varying from “something” to “nothing”. The work of Rumiko Hagiwara focuses on the subtle and ordinary things from our daily life. The artist’s minimal interventions do not add, but rather address and point out the memories that space or language contains as a result of human action and behaviour, or how migration of the body or the object/ word from its original context often leads to misunderstandings. Nevertheless simultaneously these renewed readings give glance to the ordinary, and highlight the poetry of the traces of daily life. Alongside ‘Mono/ Butsu’ the artist also shows the outdoor intervention “Weed”, containing a Wikipedia text on a Hortus-like plate about ‘Weed’ installed next to bits of weed in between the tiles in front of the gallery. Descripted as ‘A plant in the wrong place’; unintentionally poetic and metaphoric for the right wing rhetoric of these times. Nothing, becoming something.
BELLYBUTTON – A Transcontinental apology
Performance event on 2nd February 2019
with Jo-Lene Ong and Bea McMahon
On 19th October 2018 in AYUMI GALLERY CAVE in Tokyo presents performances by the artists Rumiko Hagiwara (Japan), and Bea McMahon (Ireland), alongside a 15 minute film program compiled from the artists’ short film works in the screening room of CAVE gallery.
Bea will perform Aftermath inspired by the tale of St. Brendan of Clonfert, a 5th century Irish monk who sailed the Atlantic following his desire to find the Land of Promise of the Saints. The performance follows the structure of the medieval tale that juxtaposes discrete parts according to a symmetric principle in order to suggest a larger whole. It brings attention to what can be situated in bodies versus what are the structures that orchestrate their social relations.
Rumiko will show the lecture performance Ghost in silence that is describing the meaning, and misreading of humour when crossing cultural boundaries, following the concept of migration, misunderstandings and the displacement of her own sense of Japanese humour within a western (art) context.
Central to both works are themes of translation or transformation. Both performances use the prostate human figure as a hinge for the dislocation of reality through which a defamiliarizing moment is created to expose the arbitrary foundations of social order.
Both artists spent two years in residency at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. After this intense experience they remained in Amsterdam and are active as professional contemporary artists there. Amsterdam’s art scene is very international and has a quality of permissiveness that brought new influences to their art practices.
They have already collaborated on a number of projects. Bea makes a zine, SIC Intertrashional to which Rumiko contributed a cartoon horse for issue #3 RACE, Winter 2016. Also they are both choreographers and composers in the lip-synching pop performance franchise Dina from Egypt.

as part of Front Space #1 – The Hammock
Front Space #1 – The Hammock presents a series focusing on the artist book as an artwork in its own right. The leisure time furniture functions as a platform from which on a weekly base artists read from their publication. Coinciding with the reading a work by each artist will be installed. In order of appearance a group exhibition will arise. Invited are Philipp Gufler, Pablo Pijnappel, AnnaMaria Pinaka and Rumiko Hagiwara.
For this reading Rumiko Hagiwara and Jeanine Hofland will read from their book 111 (50%) copies of A4 paper & other titles. The book can be considered as an artist book, as a poem spread over the pages of the book or as an ordinary notebook serving as a void for thoughts. The reading is followed by a live screening of Ghost in Silence. In addition to this Hagiwara will install the work Drawing in Silence.
Jeanine Hofland was Hagiwara’s gallerist from 2010 till 2016. Currently Hofland works for De Bruin-Heijn Art Collection/Quetzal Art Centre, Spring Performance Festival and as an independent curator and writer.

Drawing of ambiguity, 2017, pencil on paper, 40 x 30 cm
As an outsider to the Netherlands, Japanese artist Rumiko Hagiwara (1979) uses the misreadings and misconceptions she encounters in her daily life as an important source of reference in her art. She reveals the factual misalignment between what is there, what we see and what we say. For this exhibition, Hagiwara has created new work highlighting humorous situations displaced from their Asian context which have gotten lost in translation and take on new meaning.

‘111 (50%) copies of A4 paper & other titles by Rumiko Hagiwara’ (Japan, 1979) is a book that includes solely titles and 111 pieces of A5 paper. It serves as a poetic manual to Hagiwara’s art practice, which playfully uses the parameters of the book format to visualize the works the titles refer to, and can be used as a note, doodle or sketch book simultaneously. The book is composed by Jeanine Hofland.
After the launch, you are welcome to stay for a karaoke party.
*New work Ghost in silence will be shown as a performance version at FOW(Filosofie oost-west).
With Rumiko Hagiwara, Rosa Johanna
and a lecture by Woei Lien Chong
Moderator: Laurens Landeweerd
Emptiness and Infinite Space II will take place on 23rd November
2017 at Arti et Amicitiae and will consist of works by Rumiko Hagiwara, Rosa Johanna and lecture by Woei Lien Chong. The event will look at the concept of emptiness through texts by the
influential Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi.
The symposium will concentrate on texts by Zhuangzi that is known for the humoristic and deep parables. Hagiwara will present her work “Ghost in silence”, an installation that combines sound and slide projection as a special performance edition. For the title she borrows from the Chinese word “youmo” (幽默)” which is a transliteration of the English word “humor”. Rosa Johanna will focus on the essay and work How to do Things Without Words and her recent stay in Peru presenting a series of short films.
The event will be moderated by Laurens Landeweerd.
Emptiness and Infinite space is a series of symposia organized by Filosofie Oost West and Arti et Amicitiae that will be finalized with a publication and an exhibition. The symposia evolve around the concept of emptiness and it’s position in Eastern and Western philosophy. Ever since Plato, the concept of emptiness has been ignored in western philosophy, while in eastern traditions it always is a fundamental one. Noticing that emptiness plays an important role in contemporary arts, for each symposium a group of artist is asked to react on this concept. By bringing together art and philosophy during the symposia we ask if the dialogues between this two practices can move us further in understanding such concepts.

Meeting : 20 h at Kim’s karaoke, Mehringdamm 32, 10961 Berlin
Diagram, 2017 © Rumiko Hagiwara
Hagiwara has been interested in mundane objects, which lost or transformed their meanings in the process of being assigned to another cultural context. As a Japanese artist living in Europe and lately locating into the multicultural maelstrom of the city of Berlin, she has undertaken research into specific stories, which are describing certain aesthetics underlying the cross-cultural context.
In her salon, she will present a work in progress entitled “Ghost in silence”. It projects a highly personal narrative, which provides unique insights into mundane objects that connotes multi-layered meanings in a paradoxical manner.
The salon employs the format of Karaoke, which was literally meant “Empty orchestra” (Kara=empty, Oke=orchestra) in 70’s Japanese. Kim’s Karaoke Bar is managed by a Korean enterprise and is located in Mehringdamm area of Berlin. In this bar, one might find several signs, which are wrongly interpreted, out of context, and already integrated into another meaning. Possibly, one might find a country song that features as a pop song in another cultural context. After all, we will share a special and exciting moment for fun in Kim’s Karaoke …

Our present age has become so individually and collectively, spiritually, materially, and ecologically exhausted that this has led to a particular kind of 21st century melancholy. In such a frenzied standstill, progress is inconceivable. The exhibition and symposium invite us to pause for a moment and ask ourselves about a future that presents itself as a universe of possibilities.

In Praise of Laziness
A collaborative video work with Mounira Al Solh will be screened at GOLEB, Amsterdam
8th August 2015
With a 10 minutes Pilates introduction exercise by Zakia el Abodi (at 5:30 PM)
Video still – “In Praise of Laziness”, Rumiko Hagiwara and Mounira al Solh, 2015
“The title of our collaborative video work, ‘In Praise of Laziness’ is taken from Mladen Stilinovic’s statement about laziness. Our video work is the laziest outcome of our residency at Kunsthuis SYB in Friesland, where we spent six weeks there.”
Rumiko & Mounira
“Laziness is the absence of movement and thought, dumb time – total amnesia. It is also indifference, staring at nothing, non-activity, impotence. It is sheer stupidity, a time of pain, futile concentration… Those virtues of laziness are important factors in art.”
An artist should allow herself/himself periods of non-making in order to stay sane. However in late capitalist societies, this is a luxury because labor is highly valued, while idleness is mostly looked down on. In order to be lazy, one must fight internalized social judgments. In fact, the laziness is the refusal attitude in search of a space of the exception within a dominant system. Ultimately, to achieve laziness demands hard work. If laziness is not only non-work, but also indeed, a different kind of work, then what is its function and what economy is it part of? How can we redefine it to counter judgmental conceptions of laziness?

No things to hang
No things to hang 1 – 281 Clarence St
Curated by Luisa Tresca
23 July – 17 August
Gaffa, Guest Gallery (Gallery Four), Sydney
Vuth Lyno & Sa Sa Art Projects
“If the artist carries through his idea and makes it into visible form, then all the steps in the process are of importance. The idea itself, even if not made visual, is as much a work of art as any finished product. All intervening steps –scribbles, sketches, drawings, failed works, models, studies, thoughts, conversations– are of interest.”
(Sol LeWitt, “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art”, 1968)
The No things to hang exhibition series is a self-referential project, reflecting on the nature of art making and its mechanisms, limits and potentials.
Through an accumulation of different contributions from artists and art practitioners, it aims at becoming a cumulative, archival and ideally limitless exhibition that triggers questions about art-making, art-production, art-exhibition, art-circulation, art-collection and archivization.
The project is unfinished, transportable and in movement, and it acknowledges many critical instances of precedent transportable, generative exhibitions, from Marcel Duchamp and Rrose Sélavy’s La Boite-en-Valise,to Yoko Ono’s 1962 exhibition at the Sogetsu Art Center in Tokyo orObrist’s pivotal ongoing exhibition DO IT.
It embraces refusals, limitations, failures, utopias, stereotypes, frustrations and uncertainties; it might fail at its first edition or keep being enriched through time.
Due to its intrinsic archival nature, all the contributions will be building up in following editions, with previous and subsequent works summing up into a growing collection of thoughts.
No things to hang 1 – 281 Clarence St presents works by seven different international artists who reflected on different aspects of artistic inspiration and production.
As the first attempt, the project is intentionally exhibited in a quite traditional gallery format and as part of a curatorial program, in the hope that the clash between a traditional structure and a somewhat unconventional project will inspire an interesting conversation.
No things to hang is not necessarily trying to disrupt any conventional mechanisms of art and curatorial production but rather to bring them, as well as possible alternative models, to the fore, and to focus on the process rather than on the final objectification of art making.

“We were sitting in a bar at 1am”

Via Bonfadio 1/a
Verona – IT
f901 is a reference code which corresponds, according to the numbering / dating by the critic R. W. Franklin, the following poem by Emily Dikinson:
The Soul’s distinct connection
Is best disclosed by Danger
Or quick Calamity –
As Lightning on a Landscape
Exhibits Sheets of Place –
Not yet suspected – but for Flash –
And Click – and Suddenness.
On the basis of these verses Temporary asked the artist Rumiko Hagiwara to develop a new art work that will be presented on Friday the 12th of July in via Bonfadio 1/a, Verona.
In the area that will host the project space, a private villa very closed to Porta Vescovo, will be exhibited a series of video installations, sculptures and drawings made by the artist in the previous years. The works will occupy the home environment blending with the daily rhythm of the internal living in order to create an intimate and familiar dialogue between the artist and the visitor. The exhibition will end with the discovery of the last room, the heart of the whole project, here Rumiko Hagiwara will reveal us the unpublished work.
About the House and the Things
Duo exhibition with Eva Pel
In a joint exhibition artists Hagiwara (JP, 1979) and Pel (NL, 1973) bring to front the extraordinary of the ordinary, daily-life. With subtle but direct interventions Hagiwara and Pel reveal specific aspects of the 18th century country-house Frankendael and its garden, that one normally would take into account without question.
