Shisa Kanko

Medium: installation/exhibition & catalog
Client: Vorwerkstift Hamburg
Year: 2018

Joint exhibition of the brothers Felix and Florian Markl, both of whom have entered into close relationships with Japanese and Korean culture through their respective wives. In the form of large-format murals, the exhibition dealt with topics such as intercultural interactions, linguistic hurdles and cultural misunderstandings. In addition to the walk-in installative part the work also includes a 32-page catalog. This was published in a limited edition of 100 copies and was »hand-signed« with cloth gloves soaked in Japanese ink.
Shisa Kanko is a technique originating in Japan, which primarily serves accident prevention and is mainly used in rail transport. An essential element of Shisa Kanko are strongly articulated gestures, which are usually carried out with white gloves and are loudly verbalized in addition.
