Etsuko Kato: Keisho at BDAC

Jan. 9 – Feb. 20

Keisho in Japanese has many meanings. I chose 3 of those meanings represented with Chinese characters, Keisho (継承) means inheritance. Inheriting something from a previous generation. Keisho (形象) means shape. To give shape to concepts that form in the mind, or things that are captured by feelings or sensations. Keisho(警鐘) means warning. To notify and give heed of danger

I remember when I visited the damaged Tohoku area for the first time in 2012, I was under the impression that I was standing in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Okinawa, Tokyo, or any given burned field in wartime Japan. A few years later, that experience was why I started to research my family history during the war for the 75th commemoration of the war in 2020.
