Please join the S&B Evening Group in supporting and congratulating Ruri Clarkson in her first Solo Art Show:
IMPOSING WORDS - Contemporary Family Matters will highlight discordant keywords of contemporary Japanese family by using embroidery, a method closely associated with women. These words impose themselves on Japanese women with their overloaded meanings, blurring the separation between the ”ideal self” in the eyes of society and the “true self” which is unaffected by society.
Adorning each imposing words with wordplay inspired motifs, by the task of sewing, Clarkson examines and questions the usage of these words and their impact on women’s lives. The venue will be set up as a “home”, with laundry lines running from wall to wall with artworks hanging from them. In this “home” the audience are invited to feel the doily shaped artworks with their hands to readjust the distance they have between the imposing word and themselves.
Here are the details of the exhibition:
