Takagi Kumi is fascinated by human existence and the wonders of the flesh. In “Total Enclosure” she used elastic materials like latex rubber and motorized materials like pumps and fans to create art installations. With a career as a sculptor of shapes, Takagi is conscious of incorporating forces of motion beyond her control-wind and gravity being two examples- into the production of her artworks, whose shapes transform and fluctuate with the forces applied. This exhibition showcased Takagi’s latest output, including installations, sculptures, and video works.
