Aika Furukawa

Catalogue 2018

-

“The practice of Aika Furukawa, who works in Japan and Germany, is based on a methodology developed in Europe. She represents the mountains and valleys of textiles as shadows cast by their folds. At the same time, she is conscious of the humidity that permeates her objects, as some kind of Eastern element trough which symbolism and meaning emerge. In between these conflicting depictions of fabric, Furukawa appears as if she is trying to reclaim the clothed-concealed body both physically and conceptually through her methodology. By showing the body as a suggested, or as an actual existence, hidden or hiding underneath, the clothes are given a lively character through their various functions, such as to wrap, to conceal, etc. As I mentioned earlier, it is related to heavenliness similar to the expression of clouds on the ceiling of a church.

It can be said that Furukawa’s formative challenge is a new attempt to connect the Eastern methodology to the classical European painting. It is, at the same time, a way to connect the everyday life and the heavenly world within us.”
