Feb 10th, 2012 - Feb 26th
Kumi Takagi (1981–) is interested in human existence and the wonders of the flesh. She uses elastic materials like latex rubber and motorized materials like pumps and fans to create art installations in Total Enclosure. With a distinguished career as a sculptor of shapes, Takagi is conscious to incorporate forces of motion beyond her control–wind and gravity as two examples–into the production of her artworks, whose shapes transform and fluctuate with the forces applied. Total Enclosure: Wandering Girl and The Floating Garden will present Takagi’s newest installations, sculptures, and video works.
Born in Tokyo in 1981. Graduated with an MFA in Sculpture from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 2008 and is currently completing DFA in Inter Media Art at the same university.
Her solo exhibitions include VANITAS, Architects Office Gallery (Tokyo, 2011); Izumoniokumi, Tezen Museum (Shimane, 2008); and Flesh and Pump, Gallery Q (Tokyo, 2007).
