Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam – Harmonic Motion

“Enel Contemporanea 2013” proposes a reflexion about the deep connections between energy and an individual’s intimate personal space. The complex process that produces spiritual energy thus turns into a means of protecting one’s intimate sphere.

Toshiko Horiuchi’s works therefore involve a real comprehensive effort aimed at creating energy; they rely on organic growth rather than on sudden intuition. Her webs celebrate fun and enjoyment, as well as relax and reflection.The idea that each and everyone of us is connected to the rest of the planet is central to Toshiko Horiuchi’s vision of art. Making sculptures by knitting implies choosing a method that only allows to create works by repeating the same gestures time and again. Her works have little to do with meticulous organization or coordination; they are much more the expression of a homogeneous flow of inspiration, as her art origins from movements that directly result in other movements.

Toshiko Horiuchi’s passion for a material like fabric and for its weft is deeply rooted in the artist’s culture that tends to prioritize touch and the connection with one’s own body over the visual aspect of life. Toshiko Horiuchi explores the interaction between the human body and space, as well as between the human body and matter. Fabric is treated as an additional layer of skin that protects and hides individuals. Her sculptures are places rather than objects and offer their users a chance to hide or feel sheltered.
