Full moon focuses on the image of the full moon, an important symbol of perfection in Asian astrology.
The site-specific installation, photo and video works of Japanese artist Rumiko Hagiwara revolve around coincidental encounters within daily life situations that often emphasize factual errors or coincidental approvals between image and language. Hagiwara combines a western conceptualist approach (ready made objects) with influences from traditional Japanese culture (shadow, light, reflection), and aims at twisting the omnipresence of the unnoticed trace of human action and behaviour into subtle, and often humoresque poetics of the ordinary.
Rumiko Hagiwara was born in Gunma (Japan) and studied at the Tokyo Zokei University in Tokyo (2000-2004). She was an artist in residence at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (2008-2009).
