A young art student travels to the Japanese pearl island 'Mikimoto' to to research on female divers. In an act of loneliness and desire she steals a Kimono from a hotel and trough ink-puking, saltwater crawings and solo dance performances she transforms into a hybrid between squid and woman.
Hotel Kimono is an interdisciplinary art film project and collaboration between Danish and Japanese artist, musicians, performers and filmmakers. The film investigates female gaze, sensuality, transformation, performativity and sculpture.
