The Garden of Forking Paths: Mira Gojak and Takehito Koganezawa


The Garden of Forking Paths brings together the distinctive practices of Mira Gojak and Takehito Koganezawa finding points of connection and divergence in the trajectories of these two highly accomplished artists. The project takes its name from modernist Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges’ intricate and magical short story from 1941. Part philosophy, part science fiction and part riddle, Borges’ The Garden of Forking Paths is a richly multidimensional text that conjures co-existent but dynamically shifting realms of time and space.

This exhibition is curated by Shihoko Iida, Chief Curator of the Aichi Triennale 2019 and Melissa Keys, Curator of Buxton Contemporary in collaboration with the artists. More
