MORI Keita’s Drawing in Public
December 2 (Sun) this weekend will be the last day. Do not miss it!
MIRI Keita’s drawing
Drawing by MORI Keita using thread was drawn on a large curved wall.
He fixes thread while using a glue gun that adheres while melting the resin with electric heat. He holds down the adhesive and thread with his finger before it solidifies very quickly.
While thread in one hand, glue gun in one hand and sometimes the cutter freely, the lines continue to connect steadily, and with the threads of different thickness and kind of yarn, a complicated image gradually appeared.
Drawing on the wall will be continued as open production after opening.
How the drawing changes, please come to see the open production!
Interview and shooting by Jolene MOK
Jolene MOK creates video works by editing the familiar events of the society seen through the camera with its own viewpoint and method.
She has stayed twice in Japan and took films of shopping street where she stayed and the families living there.
She edits the image based on stories heard while interviewing and events incidentally appearing on the camera during shooting at several places. With a unique view point, it makes us aware of trivial events occurring at each time and place.
In Aomori, she visits three artisans of traditional craftsmen, one artist for shooting movie. In early October, she took at Kawasaki Dyeing factory and Kurimura Urushi Studio in Hirosaki City.
She was interested in the spaces and tools that feel the accumulation of time, and directed the camera carefully to the work of the artisans held there.
