Love From Japan….

September last year i went on a trip connected with the Australian National University School of Art to Japan. We stayed at the Kyoto Seika University in Kyoto for two and a half weeks during the University’s mid semester break and spent a few days in Tokyo, visiting museums, galleries, temples, shrines, markets, local artists and did lots of shopping 🙂 The 20 students had an amazing time and decided to create and exhibition based on our experiences from the trip. The exhibition was called “Love from Japan…” we had a large range of mediums, as the students were from all different workshops within the School of Art. I put in 3 pieces in the exhibition, “Meditation” a three paneled tapestry made from raw Japanese silk, wool and cotton, the images were derived from drawings i had done after meditating. “Vending Machine” is a installation made from electrical tape and photographs of vending machine. I used electrical tape to make a vending machine on the wall with the photos of vending machines as the product inside the machine. The final piece was called “Puri Kura Dreaming”. Puri Kura is the name of the the sticker photos machines you find everywhere in Japan, Holly Gordon and I had a collection of Puri Kura photos so we made a collage. I loved the exhibition, it was fun and a great collaboration, which is how exhibitions should be.
