Yulia and Yurika had never met before, and they wouldn’t ever have if they had different names, looks, or chosen occupations. Yet, the similar sounding names, similar body build and similar occupation was enough of a premise for them to be introduced through a collaborative art project.

They agreed to monitor transformations during this period of seasonal change in Scotland and in Japan: over the last few weeks Yulia has been gathering fallen leaves, while at the same time Yurika has been gathering her dreams. Yulia covers each leaf with golden paint, Yurika draws images of what she had seen in her dreams. The exhibition will evolve as both keep adding new dreams and new leaves.

The exhibitions run simultaneously from the 21st November 2016 in Tent Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland and in Container Gallery, U8 Projects in Komaki, Japan.
