Sato Haguri / KOKONIYURU

Saturday 11th November 2017 - Sunday 10th December 2017
Opening Hours : 12:00-1900 
Opening Reception : Friday 10th November from 18:00 onwards
Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays

Sato Haguri produces wooden carvings where she fosters a sense of lightness, using combinations of tree structures to create sculptural space. A motif that appears within all these works is people. The color palettes and various compositions create a gently whimsical impression.
Haguri was awarded the Toshiyuki Inoko Prize at Geisai #20 in 2014 and went on to receive the Tokyo Design Week Asia Awards Art division Semi Grand Prix in 2015, and another prize in the Three-Dimensional Moving Image division at Tokyo Wonder Wall in 2016.

Inhale slowly.
Hear the sound of the air as it hits the back of your nose.
Here is an extremely quiet place, 
Inhabited by people with a wobbly existence,
In their mind and body alike.
- Sato Haguri
