June Sekiguchi: The Pulse Of Water

ArtXchange Gallery, Seattle, WA - To Nov 30

by Matthew Kangas

Based on her experiences on the Mekong River and in Luang Prabang, Laos, June Sekiguchi’s immersive installation consists of wood and paper cut into myriad configurations emulating the flow of river water, demonstrating how water is a connective material that unites communities and economies. A bamboo footbridge at the center allows visitors to enter an imaginary world evoking Asian cultures that revere handicrafts such as weaving and paper-cutting. Sekiguchi’s art has also been seen in Chicago, Cambodia, Morocco and Sweden.
