Juri Onuki engages the work of George Miyasaki which will be on view during her performance. Her approach posits zen philosophy as a stabilizing mechanism for Japanese Americans after World War II. In this endeavor, the artist will question Japanese American identity by performing everyday gestures and movements based on Miyasaki’s work installed in the gallery.
