Karin Pisarikova: Still Life

Karin Pisarikova‘s exhibition, Still Life, will be at the Czech Centre in Tokyo until July 28, 2016. She is a Czech artist living in Tokyo, Japan.


Yes, your eyes are working correctly. That mask is made of hair. Pisarikova has been using hair as a sculptural medium in her recent shows. She made a small, domed house of hair as well as other pieces. Where did she get all that hair? Her family can only donate limited amounts, so she asked barbers and hairdressers for the hair that they cut off of clients.


Her work has a sense of humour and playfulness. She gets to the heart of human nature and nature itself. You cannot help but smile when you look at her work.


Pisarikova took a beard made of braided hair and draped it over the lap of a stone woman in a park in Toyama prefecture. No more cold stone! She has a blanket to keep her warm and to cover her knees for decency’s sake.



The closest train station is Ebisu, and from there you have to walk about 15 minutes.

今回の展覧会ではチェコ出身の芸術家であり、学芸員でもあるカリン・ピサリコヴァー氏の新しいプロジェクトをご覧いただきます。ピサリコヴァー氏は今年で来日8年めを迎える創作芸術家でもあります。 彼女は作品において、日常生活に入り混じる自然の中で生きる人間について、超存在的な疑問を投げかけてきました。日常生活のシーンを題材にした作品は可視化された俳句のような効果をもたらしてくれます。作品を前にした者は、自分自身の独自な解釈や自分の中で沸き起こる物語作品へと誘われることでしょう。ピサリコヴァー氏は最近の作品の中で、「自然の一部としての人間」というテーマをしばしば取り上げてきました。

会期:7月1日~28日 10時~17時(土、日、祝日を除く)

場所:チェコ共和国大使館内 チェコセンター 展示室

(150-0012 東京都渋谷区広尾2-16-14)
