poster for Kaoru Hirano Exhibition

This event has ended.

Hirano Kaoru is known for creating installation pieces by unraveling the individual threads of used fabrics such as old clothing and umbrellas and reconnecting, reweaving, and restructuring these to create new forms and spaces. For this exhibition she continues exploring this technique in a new installation created from the fibers of a woman's one-piece dress, painstakingly deconstructed by hand into individual threads and reassembled into a completely new form within the Shiseido Gallery space. In a new twist, this time Hirano has fashioned her threaded spaces in ways that allow the viewer to enter within them, compressing the separation between viewer and artistic work in an attempt to convey qualities such as “object memory” and “sense of time” inherent in the original garment.
Hirano will continue to build and change her installation throughout the exhibition period, unveiling new additions each Saturday, thus affording visitors opportunities to enjoy a continually evolving aesthetic space.

There will be public demonstrations of her work from 11:00 to 19:00 each Saturday during the exhibition period (January 13th, 20th, and 27th and February 3rd)

解かれたワンピースは、糸になっても確かに鮮やかな色を残している。解き途中のワンピースの中に入ると、まるで糸の色彩で、白い空間に絵を描いてるみたいだなあと思った。繊細で気の遠くなるようなメイキングを想像してみたら、なんか切なくなった。それは作者の言葉を借りれば「機能を奪い去って死を与える」ことを感じたからかも。
