DAILY: Saturday, January 30 and Sunday, January 31, 2016; Ferry leaves at: 10am and 3:30pm each day.

Off-site: Embark from Yaletown Ferry Dock, Quayside Marina, 1088 Marinaside Crescent and disembark at Burrard Marina Field House, 1655 Whyte Avenue

Paper introduces us to K, a woman who runs a small, family restaurant off a mysterious island along the shores of Japan. One evening, just before closing, a man appears at the door for a meal. What follows is a series of strange events that allows K to peer into a portal created by a tiny hole in her paper menu.  A second chapter of ‘Rock, Paper, Scissor’ an ongoing trilogy of multi-media experiences set in the time frame of 1900’s – 2100, ‘Paper’ bridges Canada and Japan through migration, water and the natural resources of coal, lumber and iron. The original Japanese version of ‘Paper’ was completed in 2013 through ‘AIR 475′artist-in-residence program in Yonago, Tottori, Japan.

For the CAG, artist Cindy Mochizuki has produced the English version of the audio narrative experienced on a boat ride across False Creek.  The journey will culminate in a traditional chagayu (tea porridge that integrates salmon and rice) often consumed by Japanese Canadian fishermen on lengthy fishing trips out at sea. Embark from Yaletown Ferry Dock, Quayside Marina, 1088 Marinaside Crescent and disembark at the Burrard Marina Field House, 1655 Whyte Avenue.

Cindy Mochizuki creates multi-media installation, performance, animation, drawings and interdisciplinary collaborations that integrate historic ephemera and stories present within public and private archives. Interested in the methodologies of memory work and experimental narratives, her projects invoke a timeless space of both fiction and documentary. Recent exhibitions and projects include Shako Club, grunt gallery (2015), AIR 475, Yonago, Japan (2014), Fictive Communities Asia, Koganecho Bazaar, Koganecho, Japan (2014), and On the Subject of Ghosts, Hamilton Artists Inc. (2013).
