The Japanese city of Hadano near Tokyo nestles in a kind of geological basin its suburbs edging up its surrounding mountainous ridges. Nozomi Watanabe, a Japanese artist, spent many childhood hours observing and drawing the shifting horizons she experienced residing in an area half way up these slopes. Like the steep escarpments and sight lines often seen in Japanese anime like those of Studio Ghibli, this was a world of shifting perspectives and associated parallax. Nozomi would often contemplate these seismic connections between grounded light plans and rotating nighttime constellations whose fluid relationships would vary according to her height in the hills, the whole visual field being held together and observed as if within some large radio dish or held in an optical lens.
Two main aspects linking Czechia and USA, inspired my creative project at Depo2015 in Pilsen: On one hand the place, an old bus depot, where I worked on the idea of transport and change, on the coming and going, on hopes and destinies and mostly on those who have long since traversed this space to look for a better chances, in the US where they arrived in great numbers in the nineteenth century to a place with the same name as their hometown: Pilsen in Chicago. In particular I explored the migration of women to the New World and how their lives changed as they started working in factories with new tools enduring hardships but at the same time building up a new existence.
