"This is work in which the carnal confronts the obsessively clean and orderly. . . . Upon entering the gallery, the visitor experiences the scent of bleach, which infuses the space with a cold, antiseptic quality. The bleach fills two sensuous marble sinks/breasts, bringing to mind both bodily fluid and holy water."
Immaculate Fabrication was Emiko Kasahara’s first solo show in New York. Her work resonates with a quiet tension. The carnal is confronted by obsessive cleanliness. Sensuality fights against repression. Personal isolation is opposed by the desire to express one’s sensuality.
