Hi! This is Alejandro.
You can expect a lot of reports from exhibitions in the near future. I am sorry we fell behind.
Today I am writing about Claire Pendrigh’s Tea Seas
The exhibition consisted on pictures on the gallery’s walls, and an animation projected on the floor.
The other day our residence artists got invited to tea ceremony at a our neighbors’ house.
After having some sweets while learning about the ceremony, they got to actually enjoy the tea.
Even when getting everything explained in a very simplified way, they looked a little confused at the many meaningful details. Aside from the cultural details, everybody loved the tea!
Before they left, Mr. Inoue wished for everyone’s health and blew a conch horn. Thank you, Mr. Inoue!
Here are some pictures and memories from SakuraItoshiMatsuri, a festival held near a beautiful Shinto shrine at the peninsula part of Itoshima.
Studio Kura had a booth. So crafty!
We are happy to announce Tea Seas, an exhibition by Claire Pendrigh, in which she will show work she did during her residence at Studio Kura.
Claire Pendrigh is an Australian visual artist who works across the mediums of painting, drawing, knitting and installation. She has exhibited in Australia and internationally in the United Kingdom and the United States. Her time at Studio Kura will be her second artist residency, her first residency taking place in Iceland in 2012.
Pendrigh’s work is characterized by a search to locate the individual in the context of the universe. Often combining elements that symbolize the homely with scientific theories, Pendrigh’s work explores the tension between the scale of the universe and the everyday experience of being human.
