I Just Can’t Say That Word is a collaboration between Mayu Kanamori and Vic McEwan that explores Mayu’s diagnosis and treatment of Breast Cancer. These two artists have created many artistic projects over the years so when Mayu was considering ways in which to focus on the “present” in order to assist her journey, she thought the thing to do would be to ask Vic to work with her, to see what they uncovered. Could they make art during this time? Art that is beautiful? Art that is harrowing? Art that is vulnerable and strong?
This is a blog to document the unfolding their journey as they work towards an artistic outcome that will exist as an exploration, a support and an avenue for reflection and sharing during a time of trauma.
