Artist Talk with Erina Kashihara
March 7, 2019
Japanese artist Erina Kashihara will discuss her contemporary wearable light art practice alongside digitally fabricated art and design within Japan.
Incorporating themes of life and creation, Kashihara’s practice spans across the fields of fashion, art and design, connecting notions of light and energy with the human body.
This talk event is part of the event program for FEMUFACTURE, a free exhibition on display at The Japan Foundation Gallery from February 6 – March 30, 2019.
Erina Kashihara hails from Japan, where she has been creating light accessories and dresses since 1985. Kashihara belongs to K-one space which combines Jewellery Art Body and Light. In 2001 she created original accessories for artist Yamaguchi Sayoko’s performances. This work was featured on the cover of Australia’s Object Magazine published by the Contemporary Craft Council. Her work is described in Susan Elizabeth Ryan’s Garments of Paradise: Wearable Discourse in the Digital Age as a “materialist-conceptualist approach providing a new design space, synthesized from technology, computation, and fashion.”
