Opening Reception 2/16
Sacco Fujishima -ENTERING THE FACTORY-
Based in Tsukuba in Japan, Sacco Fujishima is a student at University of Tsukuba. She started her career as contemporary artist in 2013 while she studied at Royal Institute of Art/Kungl. Konsthögskolan (RIA) in Stockholm. Fujishima’s artwork often captures artificial structures especially factories and industrial areas as landscape.
Moe is a Japanese word that originally refers to strong affection mainly towards characters in animation, manga, and videogames. Moe, however, has also gained usage referring to affection towards any subject, for example, factories and industrial objects. This affection, called “Kojo(factory in Japanese)-Moe”, incorporates even animism, according to the artist.
The title of this exhibition, Entering the Factory, is inspired by a film “Exiting the Factory” or, “Exiting the Lumière Factory”, the first live-action movie ever made. In this movie, the factory remains motionless, whereas the people are directed to act. In contrast, this exhibition aims to “direct” the factories, immobile existence, as to let people rediscover the animism in artificial structures.
