Image- and Soundistallation with William Saunders for Museum Night Cologne 2017.
In march 2017, Will Saunders and Hans Diernberger went on a research trip to Tokyo to meet and learn about Japan’s only male Geisha, Eitaro Matsunoya.
This research project has been partly funded by the Goethe Institute Tokyo and was under the protectorate of the German Embassy, Tokyo.
A surround sound installation in a concrete staircase with an image of Eitaro Matsunoya that hides from you when you look directly at it.
The music is impovised on the japanese mouth organ Shō, played by Ko Ishikawa and Kazue Tajima – and recomposed by Will Saunders.
This project was supported by Gemeinsame Stiftungen Geschwister Abelen und Karl Bau, Goethe Institute Tokyo, VD
