Ends in 17 days
Aoyama Satoru who majored in textile during his college years in England came across a vintage, Singer-made sewing machine. Ever since then, he has created embroidery works that examine the interactions related to the sewing machine, such as the relationship between man and machine, and the system of manual labor that has gradually changed over time.
It has been two years since his last solo show, and this exhibition will consist of embroidery and video installation, a new attempt at embroidering on silkscreen print, and the very first attempt at using a computerized sewing machine for the artist who is known to create with an old industrial sewing machine.
