This show takes the form of an excursion in which the participants proceed as companions, pairing up naturally for one reason or another, transporting us along with them. Helen in the title could refer to Helen Keller who came to Nikko with her companion Polly Thompson for three days in July in 1936.
Artists often work alone in a universe of their own making, developing an idiosyncratic language or lexicon. When their artworks encounter another’s, languages mingle. Translation, even loose or partial, could reveal a new world.
