Mariko Hasumi - Weave / Rise of the Curtain

Mariko Hasumi - Weave / Rise of the Curtain
Mixed media - 2007

Size: 50 x 60,6 cm
Born in Tochigi, Japan, in 1978. Fumiko Nagayoshi: 'Mariko Hasumi's works feature the themes of difference and misunderstanding which lie concealed in every communication in daily life. They are expressed through the abstract impressions connected to the concept of a 'stage'. Hasumi usually makes the exhibition space up as a ‘stage' laying a red carpet on the ground. She places the works as stage setting or stage properties and invites the audience to participate as actors. In her fresco's, images of mountains, asterisms, body parts or knitting stitches appear in simple lines. These images mislead the viewer who wants to find out what they are looking at, because they don't have proper orientation or context, or some parts of their code are transformed. Hasumi shows us the scenes beyond fiction and reality.'
