Continent-hopping as artistic excercise

by Mariko Kuyama

Japan Times, June 21 Spring, 1998

The article describes philosophy and art practices of two international artists, Anna Davis (Australian) and Atsushi Ogata within the context of their first collaboration. The installation is titled Should I Stay or should I Go which uses four seperate dialogues, four sounds, four images in four situations. The work addresses issues we all face at work, at home, in a difficult relationship, in a political faction or when we are standing in front of a painting in a museum, pondering over a simple dilemma, "shold I go should I stay".
