• Yukari 海堀 Kaihori

Japanese born, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland based artist Yukari 海堀 Kaihori’s work develops an interest in the More-than-Human-World and draws on practices located in Japanese folk animism to consider the life- force in materials and things.

For two sides of the moon, Kaihori works with hand-made ceramics, cast sculptural objects of organic matter sourced from around the Te Tuhi premises and iron sand with 57 per cent iron by weight and 7.6 per cent titanium dioxide. This installation culminates in an imagined a life-force within materials, considering where the essence of materiality begins and ends.
