Duq Project

BankArt Studio NYK

poster for Duq Project

This event has ended.

In this project, the artist collects pieces of unwanted glass from participants, breaks the glass into small pieces, and combines the pieces to create a work of art. The artist gives this artwork back to the owner of the original glass. The process of creating what the artist calls "fictional" creatures out of "real" objects in daily life is characteristic of her research/art series called "Crystallization Studies".

1) The artist will be in an open studio at Bankart Studio NYK, Studio 2, for the duration of the exhibition from 11:30-23:00. Please bring your glass to the studio, and she will send you the finished artwork at a later date.

2) After 1st September, email Matsumiya at tp9t-mtmy@asahi-net.or.jp with your name, address, phone number, and a brief description of the glass. Send your glass to the adress stated in her reply. She will send you back the finished artwork at a later date.

Please note:
* The artwork will differ depending on the type/shape of glass
* Only glass is accepted (no metal etc)
* Please state your name and address clearly when posting
* All postage expenses are to be paid by the participant
* Please send the glass in a sealed cardboard box



From 2006-08-20 To 2006-08-27
Opening Hours: 11:30-23:00

Tomoko Matsumiya's Broken Glass Project

Bank Art Studios’ building in Yokohama seems too large for the few artists that have their art space and residency there, at least in Tokyo standards.
