PechaKucha Presentation

Re-Imagining The Art of Eroticism

PRESENTED ON JUN 22, 2017
IN TOKYO @ VOL 148

"Sex is a universal and instinctual act but socailly and culturally stackly informed."

In Re-Imagining The Art of Eroticism from Pechakucha Night Tokyo Vol. 148, Aiko Robinson is a Christchurch based artist of Japanese and New Zealand heritage. Inspired by shunga, Japanese erotic woodblock prints from the Edo period (17th-19th century), Aiko's artworks can be seen as a whimsical and playful fusion of the historical Japanese art form and contemporary pornography.

Aiko Robinsonさんは、日本とニュージーランドを拠点に活動するアーティスト。日本の春画に影響を受けた彼女の作品は、滑稽さと遊び心、伝統と現代的表現が融合した世界を創出しています。

This was "Presentation of the Day" on July 17th, 2017.

Imagining the Unthinkable, Creating the Unimaginable

BY MORGAN ROBINSON
@ VOL 142 ON DEC 14, 2016

"It's the clouds, it's the grass, it's the scars on someone's face... My inspiration comes from various places.."

In Imagining the Unthinkable, Creating the Unimaginable  at PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 142, Sculptor Morgan Robinson goes into depth about his source of inspiration, studio practice, and the outlet for his work. He finds the process/challenge of making his art more important than the actual pieces he realizes through the contemporary, non-figurative expressions that he creates using wood and metal.
