Naoko Majima "In the Jungle"

Mizuma Action

poster for Naoko Majima "In the Jungle"

This event has ended.

This exhibition by Majima is composed of pencil drawings and objets d’art made with various materials.

Majima creates her drawings without making a draft beforehand, starting with a single line that then multiplies, one line leading to another, becoming a bundle, then forming a swirl. In her pencil drawings, there are algae swimming in the water, microorganisms, sperm, blood vessels and other things that remind us of the insides of our body.

The carp and human-shaped objets d’art are made with threads in various colors and clothes featuring different patterns. The carp, one of Majima' s favorite motifs, sidles toward us, making a sloshy, squirming sound ("nyuru nyuru nyoro nyoro"), arousing in us an appreciation of the life and death that normally pass unnoticed in our daily lives.
