About The Artwork

The uninhabited Japanese Island of Gunkanjima (also known as Battleship Island) and since 2015 registered as an UNESCO world heritage site, is the subject for MAKIKO’s exhibition project: “Paradise Revisited”. The island recently appeared as a haunting backdrop in the 007 movie ‘Skyfall’, representing the evil home of villain, Raoul Silva. In Summer 2015 MAKIKO was granted rare permission by Nagasaki City to visit the restricted zone, in order to show how it is now and to remember how it was 40 years ago, through the memories of a former resident who was from a mining family and spent a happy childhood on the island, leaving at the age of 13. Shooting from his perspective as a child, MAKIKO has produced a beautiful and powerful photo essay, which recalls priceless memories of a time spent in what was once a childhood paradise. This series consists of 26 monochrome photographs and was exhibited at London School of Economics in 2016 as well as curated 11 works were showcased in Bunkamura and Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (Japan) in 2017. The latter is in collection of Nagasaki City, Japan. The image was printed as fine arts on Hahnemühle photo rag Baryta, mounted onto 1.5mm aluminium board and framed with high-quality hand painted charcol grey wood frames made by A. Bliss in London.
