Personal dictionary
object, A5, 2019

This project was created during the Artist in Aso Residency Programme.

Living in the shadow of an active volcano, in the country in which earthquakes and typhoons are part of daily life, brought the need
to review, rethink and reassess held beliefs.

Personal dictionary consists of words associated in different ways with experience of living in Aso City. The definition of each word, however, is reshaped by the provided examples of use.

For the moment, the dictionary exists in English and Japanese version. The Polish version is in plans.


This work was presented during the following events:

  • the Safe Place, Rotational Cultural Center, Warsaw, Poland,
    February 2020
  • Caldera, Gallery Takechi, Kumamoto, Japan, October/November 2019
