Yoshimi Arts is proud to present “Open Studio” is Rachel Adams first solo exhibition in Japan. This exhibition considers what it means to work in the studio and how creativity rubs up against domestic life. Influenced by sculptural history of the 20th century Adams has been considering images of the sculptor’s studio and and the sculptor at work. Alongside this she has been drawing on images from contemporary furniture and lifestyle blogs. Using hand dyed fabric, digitally fabricated acrylic shapes and traditional sculptural tools, this new series of sculptures aims to highlight contradictions in both our perceived notions of history and hierarchical structures separating art from design.
