poster for Saya Irie Exhibition

This event has ended.

Saya Irie is an artist who produces works focusing on various meanings and essences―origins, characteristics of materials, sentiments contained in designs (patterns)―embedded in commodities abundant in the world and images.

In this exhibition, she develops installations from daily commodities under the theme of finding trivial happiness that makes life fulfilling.

Examples of her works include the following: small meticulous objects made from erasing the surface of commodities (visual information) by an eraser and reducing the original visual information into three dimension (sculpture) from the eraser dust, a dinosaur sculpted on the rubber sole of boots, a venus born from makeup foundation. A trivial happiness emerges from such items familiar to us.
