Maki Okamoto 2015

I am an artist who is born in Japan, live and work in Sweden.

I explore the field of corpus and contemporary jewellery with my sculptural background.The ability which I got thorough working in the sculpture field creates pieces with balanced proportions and contrasting volumes.

My interest in making objects that communicate with an audience encourage me to challenge the conventional use of jewellery and corpus-works. Using the idea of daily based objects such as the cup, spoon or book in unique ways, I offer a trigger to the viewer to see them from a different perspective. I invite the audience to experience my work by touching them and being intimate with them.

観客とコミニュケーションをとるオブジェクトを創ることへの興 味は従来の伝統的なジュエリー、食器やオブジェクトなどの在り方に疑問を投げかけるところから始まる。日常にあるカップやスプーンや本などをテーマにして 制作することは、いつもとは違う、異なった見方からそれらを見るきっかけを与え、私の作品に触れてもらうこと、体験してもらうことを提供する。
