ICN Keiko Masumoto

With Saturday night came the private view for the latest fascinating installation at the ICN Gallery. This time around, the space was filled with objects created by an extremely talented young woman, Keiko Masumoto, whose unusual ceramic works challenge borders between traditions of Japanese art and craft.

Collisions between useful, everyday objects and animals, architecture or plants; each object is playfully confusing, but causes you to simply admire the incredible skill in its creation. The tension of two things overlapping and the perilous balance of Pagoda-Pot in particular gives hints at the extreme fragility of the work. The exhibition is really beautiful and yet again the ICN gallery is introducing London to an exciting up-and-coming Japanese artist.
