Shiseido Art Egg 8_Madoka Furuhashi
by Shiseido Gallery
Location: Shiseido Gallery
Artist(s): Madoka FURUHASHI
Date: 7 Mar - 30 Mar 2014

Madoka Furuhashi began her career in architecture and since moving into art from there, she renders everyday objects into art in a way that investigates the sites and frameworks defining art. In her work using objects left in the house she resided in London, she arranged objects such as half-broken furniture and kitchen utensils left by past inhabitants along with photographs to rebuild these as an installation.

For this exhibition, her first solo show in Japan, she exhibits new works created from used everyday objects collected in Japan such as fish bowls and insect cages, as well as agricultural implements. She explores the stories that surround such objects, drawing forth their inherent power.
