Made in Japan (Wrapping)


Today it was the opening of S-AIR resident artist Cecilia R.Corzo final show.Coming from the street you could see that in one of the venue building's window, the light was rhythmically changing from pink-red into blue. After climbing staircases and walking corridors, you could find yourself in the installation.The ingredients of the installation are 100% made in Japan: plastic blue sheet, tatami chairs, pottery, kimono textile, packaging plastic (which is not made in Japan but rapresent a very japanese reality). The usual functions of this items has been transformed and original combinations have been created. The no-legs tatami chairs has now ultralong woodlegs. The bluesheet often used by homeless to build up a temporary but resistent habitation or more in general used as simply practical tool for covering and protecting, is now an almost elegant second skin wrapping the chairs.
More then fifty pottery, for rice, soup, sake and tea, are now lamps,wrapped in colourful kimono textiles and finally packed in plastic. The lamps turns on only when a person steps nearby.

Michael works hard

Michael is working hard to finish his work for the show in Praha opening on the 9th of September. In the last ten days he met and interviewed some Sapporo-based Manga Producers. Now he is drawing a 12 pages Manga, which gathers images of his own life routine in Sapporo, images of the manga producers working with their own fantastic character, together with big black crows which scream in the sky of the Hokkaido's capital.

Which kind of story will come out will become clear later, day by day..

Cecilia's work in progress

Cecilia is currently working on an installation which will combine different material she got in touch with during her stay in Japan, approaching them in an unusual way.
For example here you can see her busy with the hard task of making a hole for each of the ceramic pot she has gathered in the studio.She uses a special diamond drill.
