Asako Shiroki - The wind blows in
Asako Shiroki’s work appears enigmatically stark in its utilitarian forms and untreated materials. Perhaps confounding at first glance, over time it reveals certain rhythm through repetition and extension. The ‘tempo’ of an object often seems to be based on an alternative standard, as if in anamorphic perspective or viewed from an alternative dimension to the world we live in.
The wind blows in, her first UK solo show at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, features the work A twig of interweaving passages, originally commissioned by Schmuck2 in Retschow. This was Shiroki’s first work shown in public space and signalled a new dimension to her practice. Collecting found ephemeral objects from her surroundings – pretzels, feathers, twigs – transformed in bronze, her work allows intervention from nature, but reflects it into an inverse perspective on the world.
