Eiko Otake

Dear friends,

I have been invited to be an artist in residence for this coming season at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. A Body in Fukushima, (my collaborative work with historian and photographer William Johnston) will be on view at the Cathedral October 6, 2016–March 12, 2017 as part of the Cathedral's exhibition, The Christa Project: Manifesting Divine Bodies, which features works by a group of diverse largely feminist artists.

Everyone is welcome to attend the free opening reception, which includes my performance, held at 6:30-8:30pm on October 6, 2016.

I have never considered my body to be that of a diety. I present my body as that of every woman, grappling with the grit of the world. However, I am excited to work with the Cathedral—such a different space that I have never worked in before.

See my website for more information.
