Emi Ozawa

EN, Solo exhibition

Opening: Thursday, January 13, 2022 from 3 p.m. till 8 p.m.
Duration: January 14 till February 26, 2022.

We start the New Year with an exhibition of the artist Emi Ozawa, who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The artist is a trained furniture and graphic designer who studied to become a sculptor of kinetic and interactive sculptures during a residency in the United States. Her wall objects, made of poplar wood, are precisely crafted, multi-varnished and waxed.

This, the artist’s first solo exhibition at Micheko, centers around the Japanese term EN, which translates to circle, but is also a combination of hiragana and katakana characters, as well as a kanji character (円、えん、エン). Ozawa writes in her statement about the exhibition, “The circle is one of the shapes that often makes me think, like the moon in the sky that makes me think every time I look up. The perfection of the circle, the energy that comes from being evenly spaced from the center, the essence of continuity – these are all fascinating compositional foundations.”
