Dutch conceptual artist Fleur van Dodewaard provided the concept and instructions for a project which became actualised in the small mountain village of Kamiyama, located on the island of Shikoku in southern Japan. Fifteen inhabitants of the village were given a disposable camera and asked to take pictures of objects, colours, movement, their loved ones, and their surroundings. Left Hand Right Hand is the published outcome, a work referencing and created in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. Van Dodewaard’s goal is to celebrate freedom in times of restrictions, creating bonds overseas while travelling in spirit to a place of dreams.
