Matsudo Week Exhibition - Arisa Kwabe - The accumulation of our little narratives

Tuesday 28 May 2019 to Sunday 09 June 2019

Artist in Residence Arisa Kwabe presents The accumulation of our little narratives.

Everyone has precious memories, but they will be lost over time. However, even if memory is lost from the body (the body being a container for the sprit), the being called “I” (which is made from past memories), appears in this world. The whole world consists of the accumulation of the small stories of “I” and this forms a large historical account. Arisa states ‘an individual’s narrative gave me motivation and the opportunity to connect with other small stories of “I” and during these moments I felt that I could recognise the world a little’.

The City of Whitehorse has a Sister City Relationship with Matsudo, a Japanese city on the outskirts of Tokyo. The relationship was developed by the former City of Box Hill in 1971 and was continued by the City of Whitehorse in 1994, when local government in Victoria amalgamated.
The two cities participate in an active exchange program for young people, which strengthens cultural understanding and promotes friendly relations. The relationship also promotes economic development opportunities between the two countries. This exhibition is a celebration of this enduring Sister City Relationship.
