Das blumige Atmen

We have met Hisa Enomoto and the versatility of her art here several times before. Currently, too,  there is a new exhibition, a new group, and a new form: With Taisha, which means "metabolism", or, if you translate it literally from the German, “change of cloth”, in Japanese, everything revolves around textile fabrics as the bases for the exhibited works. All of the group’s four artists (Hisa Enomoto, Yuka Fina, Yoko Masuda and Mamie Zauner), though, take up organic forms in the metabolic sense of the word as well, and transform them into psychological or poetic processes, or find psychological and poetic analogies to them;  with the short texts next to the works telling the background thoughts in a very intimate and personal manner. Yoko Masuda's spinning filters, for example, are based on her work in a sewage treatment plant and the microscopic observation of filtered out material - and the desire to clear dull thoughts and a heavy heart. Hisa Enomoto's roots point out that although branches break, the root on the other side continually grows, and ultimately suggest an attempt to deal with remorse, grief, and self-reproach in a friendship-like manner. Mamie Zauner's installation, "Der Geburtsaltar des Rhombus", symbolizes the development of the water nut, which is poetically and family-heraldically significant in Japan, while Yuka Fina, on the other hand, literally illuminates marine life forms such as corals and sea anemones, referring in the accompanying (one could almost say) poems to symbiotic ways of life.

“Das blumige Atmen” is a small, very fine exhibition - but beware! you can only visit it until August 27th !
