Akemi Fujita: A Standstill Sculpture Series

Monday, October 19 - Saturday, November 7, 2021‬

Reception: Thursday October 22, 2021 6pm - 8pm

Caelum Gallery is proud to present a second solo show by the sculptor Akemi Fujita. 

Fujita’s powerful work is in three categories for this show: a blistering memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, an enigmatic series of blocks tied with rope, and a stunning bust of a woman. The materials the artist used unify this diverse show: drift wood, clay and cement. The former two are natural and the latter is manufactured; there is a battle between the two. Each block of cement is tide with a rope that is made of clay, as if the rope is constraining the monolith. 

 

The artist has an ingenious method of combining driftwood with clay to create convincing and haunting pairs of legs- life-size without torsos- and the woman’s bust that surges with emotion. Another unifying element to the show is color- the grey of the cement and clay, and the bleached wood. Although the show is somber in tone, it is also deeply human and moving.
