LIFE-SIZED paper cutouts exhibition by Risa Fukui, Tokyo – Japan

February 14th, 2014 by retail design blog

Another show I attended while in Tokyo was LIFE-SIZED, an exhibition of large-scale paper cutouts (kirie) by Risa Fukui. The 38-year old artist presented 10 new works that, while hard to believe, were created by simply cutting lines into the paper to create negative space.

For LIFE-SIZED, Fukui created her works on hanging translucent panels. Each cutout is double-sided and viewable from the front (in white) or from the back (in color). The intricate details are hard to ignore but what was especially beautiful was the cast shadow on the floor from each cutout. Fukui’s show is on display at the Pola Museum Annex until September 8, 2013.
