CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) is delighted to announce an exhibition of ceramic mask work by artist Miyu Asakawa. The ceramic masks and heads in this exhibition, “Atonement," are inspired by actual events in the artist’s life. Each mask represents a feeling Miyu had at a particular moment in time, phases in her life, or in a relationship. All of the masks were cast of her own face or that of friends or family.
An Opening Reception with the artist will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014 from 5 – 7 pm. Following the reception, please join us for a screening of the lyrical and profound Dutch-Japanese documentary film "Water Children."
Miyu Asakawa was born in Fukuoka, Japan and moved to New York in 1998. She has been working in ceramics for the last seven years. Most of the pieces in this exhibit are made in the Raku method, which is a particular method of glazing and firing clay. In Raku, the glaze of every piece comes out completely different, even if it started out identical on two separate pieces. She has previously had exhibitions in NY at Art on A in Manhattan and at Roux Roux in Brooklyn.
