Art Installation Doubles As Artist's Portable Home
All artists produce their works to express themselves through creativity, and aricoco does that. But she also has a second reason to create: to give herself a home.
"I had this tendency to want to live away from home when I was really small. I started to have this performance where I went outside with all my toys in my bag and went away from home and played wth my toys," aricoco,[url=]uggs[/url], a Tokyo native,[url=]louis @#$%&[/url], said. "It was ritualistic. It felt like spiritual transformation."
Today, aricoco combines this restless temperament and fondness for ritual with a phobia against natural environments, creating works that let her be in harmony in nature without actually being in contact with nature. "I consider what I make to be my own portable homes," she said, "some place to survive every day."
Her latest creation, RUNawayHOME,[url=]louboutin[/url], a massive red and white tent like structure, and its accompanying portable folding bed, called Run Away Cape Cart,[url=http://www.cheapnfljersey-outlet@#$%&/]hockey jerseys[/url], are on exhibit at Real Art Ways in Hartford, starting on Thursday,[url=$%&/]the north face outlet[/url], Nov. 17. At the opening reception,[url=]@#$%&[/url], aricoco will present an interactive performance with the pieces.
RUNawayHOME has flat Masonite flooring and is designed to be pulled around on casters,[url=http://www.ferragamo-shoes-outlet@#$%&/]ferragamo belts[/url], and comes with an emergency beacon and a gas mask,[url=]ghd hair[/url], which aricoco wears during performances.
The artist, 38, was born Ari Tabei in Tokyo, and after getting an undergraduate degree in legal studies in Japan,[url=http://www.@#$%&]roshe run @#$%&[/url], she moved to the United States. She received an MFA from the University of Connecticut in May 2007, specializing in performance and sculpture. She is now based in Brooklyn, New York.
She started out designing bags, then progressed to garments. "I would try on a dress, robe and then disrobe. I think of myself as a little bug. I transform into something wearing my own garment, then I discard it and go into the next one. I repeat this action to keep going. My life goes on."
The dresses were influenced by her mother. "I grew up watching my mother,[url=]@#$%& air max[/url], who is a Japanese traditional dance teacher and always wore the kimono in a certain way, like a ritual," she said. "I was so attracted to the process of her putting it on and taking it off. She'd repeat it every day. I wanted to make my own way of wrapping myself."
"RUNawayHOME" came from a desire to create a even bigger ritualistic cocoon. Her fear of coming in contact with natural things,[url=]louboutin shoes[/url], like plants and bugs, influences her working materials: scraps of fabric, clear plastic, PVC tubing, and plastic grocery bags,[url=]michael kors bags[/url], which she weaves to create fabric like sheets. (She also traces her phobias back to her mother: "She did not want me to touch dirty things. That started my own fear. Bugs just freak me out.")
"I try to protect myself,[url=]michael kors @#$%&[/url]," she said. "I don't like to touch grass or trees. I am uncomfortable in a real, natural environment. So I have my own protective environment made of synthetic materials,[url=http://www.mcmhandbags-backpack@#$%&/]mcm outlet[/url], vinyls and plastics."
Performing with her creations "completes the piece,[url=]p90x workout[/url]," aricoco says. "It's like meditation, my own ritualistic play. I just want to exist in the world and surrender myself."
