11.2 × 17.8 × 0.2 cm

Artist book. Softcover, saddle stitched, b/w illustrations.

Reunion is a series of portraits of arbitrarily selected people drawn with a single stroke of a ballpoint pen. Although the subjects are fictitious and there are no relationships between them, the title Reunion can automatically create their relationships and histories within the minds of those viewers who see the title and drawings together. Yet by drawing each portrait using only one stroke, the resulting single-line drawings are flimsy in both appearance and meaning. In taking her time to draw using this specific simple technique, Aki Goto is attempting to pursue a kind of Reality, Right or Wrong, the meaning of Relationships in the universe, and the relationship between Time and Existence.

Aki Goto is a multimedia artist based in New York. Her ongoing project NOW explores the relationships with her past, present, and future (with particular emphasis on the present) through the use of a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, video, clothing, and sound. At present she is broadening her knowledge in permaculture while constantly trying to develop her concept of NOW at every moment. Supplement to Zug Magazine Issue #5.
