In this exhibition, new audiovisual works using CGI and live-action, as well as sculptural works that represent a new challenge as an artist, were presented. Inspired by personal experiences and those of people around her regarding fertility and pregnancy, Mekara embarked on a journey to find the kappa creature from Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s novel “Kappa.”

The exhibition humorously approaches the power dynamics within parent-child relationships and patriarchal systems.
