“Only the creation saved my mind in valance.”
After a long hiatus, MIKA YAJIMA has made a transformation from folk art materials and ancient traditional techniques to the contemporary arts returning to the original self-cultivated material series -Asian royal fern, Basho fiber, Kudzu fiber etc., that continues from her art college days, something that cannot be done with machines, digital tools, or AI. And she is now focusing a variety style of expressions using weaving techniques and materials to tapestries, frameworks, installations, and mixed-media, what based on a consistent theme.
「制作することが心を取り戻す唯一の救いだった。」
10年近い休養期間を経て、アーティストは大学時代より続けてきたぜんまい綿・芭蕉・葛等、自家栽培・自家採取の植物繊維素材や伝統的織物技術を基に、機械やデジタル、Alでは出来ない民芸染織素材を現代アートへ変容させる試みに焦点を当て、一貫したテーマを基に染織に係る多様な技法や素材のバリエーションを組み合わせタペストリー、フレームワーク、インスタレーション、ミックスド・メディアさまざまな表現スタイルのバリエーションに挑戦している。
