Announcing Sanne van de Goor’s Exhibition “Folding Thoughts”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Folding Thoughts by Sanne van de Goor on December 22 (Sat) to 24 (Mon) , as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Sanne van de Goor is a graphic designer based in Amsterdam. Her work starts with a fascination for the underlying rules that create a structure and the potentiality to generate an unpredictable outcome from a rule-based system. Her autonomous visual projects, commissioned assignments, and educational work embody a tension between precision and randomness, chaos and control. Her art projects and workshops for children, embraces the unpredictability that can emerge through rule-based play, while her pattern designs concentrate on single lines or forms that take shape through repetition.

For Folding Thoughts, I asked residents of Itoshima to fold a pattern piece of traditional Japanese paper clothing (kamiko) in such a way that it would fit into an octagon-shaped vessel that I had given them. Carbon paper traced their movements—creating an imprint of each action. Displayed together, the variations in folding techniques and different approaches to the exercise created a communal trace, a pattern of thoughts.
