Kaori Kurihara: Imaginature イマジネーチャー Speaking with the Soul

Posted on 16 July 2019

The art objects of Kaori Kurihara (Osaka, 1987) look deceptively real. Fully focused, the artist creates magical new forms of life that perhaps could have existed, but were actually created in a Paris studio. With angelic patience she works on her detailed ceramic sculptures. Their form is created in a flow. "I hear their voice coming from above. I start working, listen to their voice and that's how they come into existence." From October 19 to November 3, the talented artist, awarded in France, will exhibit for the first time in the Netherlands, at the gallery of Kunstconsult in Amstelveen. 'Imaginature' is the fitting title of the sales exhibition.
