A Body in a Library (2015-)

A Body in a Library is a part of Eiko's solo project, A Body in Places.

Eiko premiered the work at Wesleyan University's Olin Library on February 23, 2015. She performed it again on September 17, 2015 at the Russell Library in Middletown.

Eiko also performed at Dickenson College library and Pittsfield Town Library both in 2017, and, in 2019, at Toronto Reference Library, the largest public library in Toronto.

At all these libraries, the photographs of Eiko in Fukushima, by William Johnston, were either exhibited or projected on the walls so as to contextualize Eiko's body with that of in irradiated Fukushima.
