This is a 6-hour radio show in live by Maiko Jinushi (from Tokyo) and Mirna Bamieh (from Jerusalem/ Palestine). It will stream at 13:00-19:00, July 27, 2016.
◾ A Statement by Mirna
A 6-hour long conversation: On personal and collective anxieties, preoccupations, aspirations, and more.
This year, Mirna started conducting different 6-hour durational performances, it started by a 6-hour auto-writing performance that was visible through live feed projection in a café in Marrakech, and now she will be having a conversation with me on the Radio live from Tokyo.
Over the past month, we met regularly, discussing lives that felt worlds apart at times, and one-step away at others. Our practices are inspired by storytelling, and that was our starting point in a personal and professional friendship.
In this performance we will be part of an unwritten script, that we’ll let play over us.
Join us and tune on: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cMz6PXYbxBD
◾ A Statement by Maiko
I and Mirna met in Tokyo last month. She saw my film, then she contacted me.
We met several times and talked various topics.
We were born and grown in far different situation.
After talking each other, we found both of us were interested in telling “personal tales” or “personal histories” on our artistic practices.
“Let’s talk everything in public.”
We decided to do this live performance with a motivation to make this long long conversation as a storytelling rather than an ordinary talk.
Mirna Bamieh is an artist from Jerusalem/ Palestine.
She obtained a B.A in Psychology from Birzeit University in Ramallah (2002-06). M.F.A. in Fine Arts at Bezalel Academy for Arts and Design in Jerusalem (2011-2013). Ashkal Alwan Home Works study program in Beirut (2013/14).
Her work attempts to understand and contemplate the ever-shifting politics, while equally questioning notions of land and geographies of in-between temporality. Recently, her work looks more at scenarios that take the language of the absurd and the ironical and uses them as tools for political commentary. In addition to that, she is working on developing works that create situational performances that use storytelling as a medium for creating a personal relationship between the participants and the artwork.
She is currently International creator resident at Tokyo Wonder Site.
Maiko Jinushi is an artist from Tokyo.
Jinushi obtained MFA in Painting from Tama Art University, Tokyo in 2010. Jinushi’s work has evolved from drawings and novels on the theme of personal tales to the creation of a “new type of literature” that comprehensively combines elements including video, installations and performance. Recent solo exhibition is “A New Experience of Love” (HAGIWARA PROJECTS, Tokyo, 2016). Recent group exhibitions are “RETURN TO: TWS Creator-in-Residence 2015-2016” (TWS Hongo, Tokyo, 2016), “Unusualness Makes Sense” (Chiang Mai University Art Center, Chiang Mai, 2016), “Zero Gravity ” (Matadero Madrid, Madrid, 2015), “Fictive Communities Asia – Koganecho Bazaar 2014″ (Kanagawa, Japan, 2014).
I will exhibit “A Distant Duet” at Tokyo Wonder Site from April 16 to May 29.
“A Distant Duet” is a video installation about Chilean poet Roberto Bolaño who exiled himself from his country after a coup in 1973 and stayed in Mexico and Spain.
I and Erika Kikukawa will do Public video recording at blanClass (Yokohama). This is not only video recording but also performance. I will try to record how Kikukawa represents “the sound of a horse approaching” by drum performance. She is a drummer and also an actor. Recorded images will be shown to the audience at the same time.

Maiko Jinushi (born in 1984) is an artist based in Tokyo. She obtained her master degree in Painting, at Tama Art University, Tokyo. She was interested in personal stories and used it in her drawings along with poetic yet long titles. These long titles were extended into short stories and she reads them as her performance. In 2010, she started to develop her storytelling practices into video works. Her works were shown at Art Center Ongoing (Tokyo), Art Award Tokyo (Tokyo) and Fukuoka Independent Film Festival (Fukuoka).
Video screening kali ini akan menampilkan 3 (tiga) film oleh Maiko Jinushi (Tokyo). Film pertama berjudul “Super Young Chili” (2013), sebuah film komedi pendek mengenai dunia seni yang telah diputar di Yoyo Art Bar, Koganecho Bazaar 2013, Yokohama dengan Wok The Rock sebagai salah seorang pemerannya. Video kedua berjudul “Here and There, Spring and Winter” (2012), merupakan film panjang mengenai perasaan-perasaan penduduk Tokyo setelah gempa besar dan tragedi Fukushima. Film ini telah diputar di Art Center Ongoing, Fukuoka Independent Film Festival dan Theater Image Forum. Sedangkan film ketiga berjudul “Voice” (2011), berisikan pengakuan-pengakuan personal yang merupakan karya pertama Maiko. Film ini juga telah diputar di Art Center Ongoing.
Selain pemutaran video, akan tampil juga grup musik Dodge (Tokyo), sebuah grup musik yang beranggotakan Maiko Jinushi, Hitomi Tada dan Erika Kikukawa, yang merupakan grup dengan ciri pembacaan puisi yang diiringi bebunyian. Penampilan Dodge kali ini diwakili oleh Maiko dan Hitomi.
Untuk memperkental mood selama presentasi, event ini berkolaborasi dengan Karina Roosvita (Jogja) yang akan mendokumentasikan ekspresi-ekspresi penonton selama pemutaran.
Maiko Jinushi (lahir 1984) adalah seorang seniman yang tinggal di Tokyo. Dia mendapatkan gelar Master di bidang Seni Lukis dari Tama Art University, Tokyo. Dia tertarik dengan cerita-cerita personal dan menggunakannya dalam gambar dengan judul panjang yang puitis. Judul-judul panjang ini lalu dikembangkan menjadi cerita pendek yang ia bacakan sebagai performance. Mulai tahun 2010, dia mulai mengembangkan praktik berceritanya ke dalam karya-karya video. Karya-karyanya dipamerkan di Art Center Ongoing (Tokyo), Art Award Tokyo (Tokyo) dan Fukuoka Independent Film Festival (Fukuoka).
