This event has ended.

The Happiness that Exists Here, a group of fifty paintings that Aki Kondo created in her hometown of Sapporo, Japan from winter 2019 to summer 2020, has become a book.

The motifs of The Happiness that Exists Here are flowers given in celebration of life, flowers given in appreciation of life, a child gazing into the distance, and overlapping empty cups. Each of these motifs embodies flickering life with which others are also involved.

Although the artist once said that her feelings could not keep up with the speed of her own artistic production, the process of creating The Happiness that Exists Here made her realize that living and painting overlap. With the completion of this body of work, Kondo decided to move to Yamagata last summer, where her alma mater, Tohoku University of Art and Design, is located. She is now preparing a new environment for her art practice while planning her next work.
