Yuriko Yamaguchi

Asia Society Texas Center

April 23 - August 21, 2016

An exhibition by Yuriko Yamaguchi. In her work, Yamaguchi uses "materials such as resins, wire, and LED lights to create large-scale abstract sculptures that resonate uniquely in the spaces in which they are installed. Her spontaneous responses to architectural structures introduce a tension between the built environment and our lived experience of such spaces, emphasizing movement, color, and the play of light, which alters as the day progresses."
