Artist Saya Irie is on a quest to discover the soul of things. The artist has chosen a very special technique for her artistic expression, that makes her quite unique in the art world.
Born in 1983, Saya Irie lives in Hiroshima, Japan. Irie modifies objects by means of reduction. She works with books, photographs, banknotes, soaps, amongst many other objects. The artist intends to demonstrate how easy it is to question the absoluteness of a physical object. The sense in Saya Irie’s work lies in the continual search for the soul of the original object through its re-imagination.
