The exhibit runs March 2–24, 2012.
Akiko Ban’s art owes much to her training as a master of Japanese calligraphy. She wants to give life to materials and create separate entities that exist on their own. She uses real time casting in her sculpture to capture reality—liquid and flexible materials such as plaster, fabric, in, water and rubber are integrated in her model making.
Her work reflects personal mythology—made of myths that make up her world in the here and now. Subjects range from films, music to social issues.
