Asami Kiyokawa "Bijo Saishu"
This event has ended.
This exhibition of Asami Kiyokawa (born in Hyogo Prefecture in 1979), an artist actively playing a part in wide-ranging activities from art direction to the production of artworks, is her first major exhibition on a museum scale.
As a student of Bunka Fashion College, she worked as a model for fashion magazines. Around the time of graduation, she began to produce her original works making good use of her handiwork, using thread and cloth as materials and embroidery on photographs. Including those artworks, she is now creating quality pieces in different fields - costume design, space design, video, advertisement, illustration, etc. She was awarded the Best Debutant of the Year 2004. (The Men’s Fashion Unity started this award for the most promising new creators and artists, who are supported by and have had a significant impact on society, culture, industry and people at large.)
At the VOCA Exhibition 2010 (a showcase of two-dimensional works by promising artists selected from all over Japan), she won an award of excellence, ushering a new phase in the contemporary art scene. Her recent works including "AKB48 × Bijo Saishu," (Kodansha Ltd., 2010), a book of photographs using AKB48 as models, "5 STITCH STORIES," (Pie Books, 2010), a collection of her works to commemorate the 10th anniversary of her debut as an artist, and "Another Place" (Little More, 2011) are much talked about. She is now in the spotlight as an artist.
In this exhibition, the whole gallery is transformed into "Asami Kiyokawa’s World," revealing her versatile talents to the full, where woman’s desire is expressed alluringly and beautifully.
