Inhuman Transformation of New Year’s Decoration, Obsolete Conception or 2

Yuki Kimura

CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts San Francisco, California, USA 12/13/2016 – 02/25/2017

The installation practice of Yuki Kimura (b. 1971 in Kyoto; based in Berlin) borrows from architecture, design, photography, and sculpture to make the immaterial material. She often incorporates found photographs in her work as sculptural objects, combining appropriated imagery with other found and constructed objects or furniture to create mixed-media sculptures. For Kimura’s Wattis Institute
