Kurioka, Setsuko


For the past twenty years I have worked within an extended drawing term.
I challenge the term and will find other expressions in this field.
I have found that using needle and thread is one of the easiest ways to express my message. Later, I have developed in this area using drawing sewing thread and collage. I make an item of paper. The whole shows an object that is built up of plain paper. I have shown these workers at a series of exhibitions and group exhibitions from 2012 to 2018.

Fremling I

Planned projects and exhibitions

I create a basic shapes with cardboard and paper structures and paste this together and create a new shapes. The shape is not complete, like a torso.
I therefore also call the new series for "Torso: an incomplete form.»
Gluing is a method and technique that I’m working on now. I want to show the paper’s ability and the quality of paper as softness and fragility in my work.
