Destination Japan - The smell tour
Diane Rabreau recently graduated from KASK in Ghent (BE), and since then travels through Europe to answer questions based on at first sight insignificant irregularities on Google Maps. Which sea is the strongest: the North Sea or the Baltic Sea? Is the green fluid in front of the coast of Gollwitz, Germany a danger for the environment? To answer a question, Diane travels to the place where she thoroughly researches it. This results in poetic, surprising and sometimes hilarious blog posts at www.destinationeurope.info, combinations of video, diary fragments, interviews and drawings. During Working Title Situation #01 Diane makes one of her most exotic destinations accessible by what she herself calls ‘imaginary tourism’. Through an exhibition and a smell tour, she evokes her recent adventures in Japan for an audience in Brussels.
