 Meiko Ando: Circle, 2008

Meiko Ando (Toronto, Canada): Circle, 2008

  There is a mountain where souls return after death. In this place they wait in stillness and silence. It is a place where invisible reality resides side by side with our reality. All sounds are accompanied by inaudible sounds. Everything there casts invisible shadows. Many of the old legends and rituals continue to exist on this mountain. On the Day of the Dead, the souls on the mountain are called back to rejoin their families and friends in this world where they feast and celebrate together. During the Day of the Dead, the inaudible voices and sounds are heard and invisible shadows become visible.



  Meiko Ando (b. Tokyo, Japan) is a printmaker and dancer/choreographer based in Toronto who received a B.A. from University of Waterloo where she studied fine arts and dance. Meiko was an artist-in residence for the internationally recognized artist group Boreal Art/Nature in Quebec. In Toronto she has exhibited at Artword Theatre & Gallery and at the Creative Spirit Art Centre. In 2006 her work was chosen for juried print show at John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto.
  She was a recipient of Arts Toronto Protégé Honors in Toronto (1999). Recent publications of her work include "Woman Critiqued" (University of Hawaii Press, Honolulu, 2006) and "Bad Girls of Japan" (Palgrave Macmillan, N.Y.C., 2005). The images of Meiko’s print emerged as a result of Meiko’s dance performances. The images are dreamlike in a sense that it is about the unknown that exists but invisible to our eyes.
