Akemi Maegawa, Invisible, Inc.
Sculptures and Installation Works
February 23 - March 29, 2008
Opening reception with the artist: Saturday, February 23, 6-8PM
Irvine Contemporary, Akemi Maegawa opens her first solo show, Invisible, Inc. The exhibition features the artist’s sculptures and installation works in a wide range of media and materials, including works in ceramics and fabric. The exhibition investigates the invisible cultural values that surround art objects and the making of art value, opening up the art world's practice as Invisible, Inc. The works engage playfully with ongoing questions about an art work's conceptual basis, the status of the material object, and the effects of scale, size, and materials. The exhibition includes interactive and collaborative works, including a disguised woodblock print press for making artist’s bank notes. Exhibition essay by Benjamin Teague.
