Purpose of the residency

In the motif of Paris' arcade, the space where the past and present coexist; Kanako Sasaki works on the photographs and video works while blending interactions with the local females. In the ever-changing cultural city, Paris, she aims to create her works which time, history, and memory come through with a sense of floating.
