A small exhibition "New Artist Picks (NAP)" that introduces young artists who are expected to be active in the future. This time, we will hold a solo exhibition of the artist, Mariko Fence (Sakura Mariko / Born in Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture in 1987, lives in Yokohama City, and completed the Master's Program in Art, Craft Area [Woodworking], Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences, Tsukuba University) .. Fence Taki has consistently used "sewing" as a means of expression, and has mainly produced natural objects such as wood chips, leaves, and petals. It can be said to be the act of tracing the memory of the time when it was carved into the material through the manual work of each needle and keeping that memory in a visible form.

In this exhibition, we will follow the development of the works so far and present new works under the theme of the artist's life story set in Sajima (Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture) where he was born and raised. They all come from the artist's personal memories, such as memories of his late grandmother who taught me embroidery and discomfort with the development of land rich in nature. At first glance, these works seem to be private expressions, but they are universal, with the artist's warm gaze focused on everything in life and the ephemeral nature of life that will eventually decay. It's full of empathy. In addition, new possibilities for sewing expressions can be found in the works created by the transparent attitude of the fence to the act of sewing.
