CHINBIN WESTERN by Chikako Yamashiro
140 x 190mm, 28 pages, colour printing, saddle stitched with fold in cover, edition of 400, 2021
Chinbin Western is a new chapbook published as part of Japanese artist Chikako Yamashiro’s solo exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts in autumn 2021. The title of the chapbook is also that of both the exhibition and the film at the centre of it, Chinbin Western: Representation of the Family from 2019. This project marks Yamashiro’s first exhibition in Scotland and is guest-curated by Kirsteen Macdonald.
The chapbook contains two newly commissioned essays thinking through Yamashiro’s practice, which spans performance, filmmaking and photography, by Macdonald and by Japanese curator Keiko Okamura.
