Title：Vessel of pray
Suzu is a land that has received culture and technology arriving from the sea on “vessels” known as ships. In rituals, prayers and thanks for good catches and bountiful harvests granted by the earth are entrusted to dishes—another kind of vessel—in feasts. The people who are born, live, and pray in this land weave together its history and may play their own roles as vessels passing down its culture and customs. The artist uses old garments that retain traces of people’s lives, developing an installation that explores vessels as a motif and contemplates what it means for people to live on this land known as Suzu.

Born in Ibaraki Prefecture in 1996. Graduated from Tsukuba University College of Arts and Design and the Department of Intermedia Art at Tokyo University of the Arts. She thinks about giving shape to the everyday events and memories of herself and others that disappear without being recorded, using mainly second-hand clothes to create her works. She collects second-hand clothes, focusing on the fact that manual work such as sewing and knitting was once a technique for repairing clothes and making tools, and was deeply connected to continuing life and handing things down. She then creates works by reconstructing these by hand.
