It is a great honor to receive Mari Ishikawa in Gallery WALKA for the second consecutive year presenting a lecture as well as an exhibition of her works.
Where does a parallel world exist?
Can one discover this world through time travel?
Is it perhaps possible to see this world in a dream? 
Or does it only exist in one’s heart?
The world we see is only a part of the entire reality which is composed of many worlds existing simultaneously, side by side. We can find “Parallel Worlds” whenever we open our eyes and hearts. They are always with us. / Mari Ishikawa
