Eduardo's studio:OPEN STUDIOS
Eduardo Cachucho[South Africa]

segurando, andando, caindo - holding, walking, falling

1.Statement by Eduardo Cachucho
A series of workshops have been undertaken with two groups of high school students from Ibaraki prefecture. Brazilian-Japanese students from the Escola Opção in Joso City and a group of Japanese students from the Toride Shoyo in Toride City were invited to take part in workshops that question culture, language and the body in everyday life.
Kept in mind during these interactions is the relationship between Brazil and Japan on a political and social level, now over one century long. With the Japanese population in Brazil at some 1.5 million and the Japanese-Brazilian population in Japan at around 200,000. The relationship between this community and Japan offers an important link to people who identify as both Japanese and Brazilian.
Visible in the installation are outcomes from these workshops including banners created by each student and video documentation of the workshop process. A performance by selected students from each school will be held on the closing day of the open studio 22 November 2015.


2. Comment by Shihoko Iida [ Guest Curator 2015 / Curator / Associate Professor, Department of InterMedia Art, Faculty of Fine Art, Tokyo University of the Arts ]
Cachucho born in South Africa, currently based in Belgium. His video and performance pieces have dealt with the effects of foreign culture and encounters with others on human psychology, language and unconscious body movements. Cachucho was interested in the relationship between Japan and Brazil even before arriving Japan. But a meeting with a teacher from a Brazilian school in the Japanese city of Joso in Ibaraki inspired him to explore the relationship between different cultures. He approached this by working with 15-16 year-old students from the Brazilian school, and Japanese students from a high school in Toride. Before the students from the two schools meet on the 22nd November for a performance, Cachucho conducted workshops with them in separate groups. For his workshops, Cachucho adapted his lecture performance, I’m holding, walking, falling, produced for his graduation piece at the Dutch Art Institute in 2015, to accommodate multiple students. The shared language created through communal improvisation with people of different cultural backgrounds and the observations of other people’s everyday gestures are reflected on banners made with the students, using “Nishi-no-uchi Washi paper” from Hitachi Omiya city, and which will also be used in the performance on the last day of the open studio. Essentially Cachucho’s activity at ARCUS Project shows an array of challenges in improvised communication invented through interrelations, and how these are mastered by our bodies and then transformed into everyday matter.
