Halperin at Akiyoshidai Karst Plateau, the highest concentration of karst formations in Japan. During Halperin's initial research residency at Akiyoshidai International Art Village. May 2018.
Saturday 12 October 2019 to Monday 04 November 2019

Yamaguchi University’s Akiyoshidai Academic Centre will invite Ilana Halperin, an artist living in Glasgow, Scotland, and hold exhibitions on art and science. Halperin was inspired by the “Rock cycle and correlation chart”, which shows the changes and metamorphoses undergone by rocks over the deep span of geological time, and will present the results of her research and outreach work hosted by Akiyoshidai International Art Village (May 2018) and Yamaguchi University’s Akiyoshidai Academic Centre (February 2019) , as well as her works of art created using materials particular to Yamaguchi. This project rediscovers the geological importance of the Akiyoshidai karst plateau and of the Akiyoshido limestone cave, focuses on the intimate relationship between the geological landscape and the lifestyle of the local residents, and transmits their appeal to an international audience.
