A Pair of Lungs
A Pair of Lungs

37 works by Julia McKinlay and Hiroko Nakajima 

Exhibition at Iwamoto Silk Worm Farm, presented by Cosmographia, Nakanojo Biennale 2023 (9 September - 9 October 2023), Gunma, Japan.

Over twelve months, the two artists responded to each other’s practice through virtual studio visits – sometimes shadowing each other’s processes – to finally meet in Nakanojo to undertake a residency on site to materialise the exchange. 

This exhibition was made possible through the generous support of Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, Nakanojo Biennale, and University of Leeds. Special thanks to Hatano Seisakujo, Rubino & Wilson and Open Space Arts for their metal fabrication services and access to workshops.
