Shuttluttling Through Time : What the Iwatate Folk Textile Museumis Searching For
Mayumi Yamase, artist and editor of Subsequence, has just published her first artbook “Book of…”. The book contains works spanning her whole her career including the latest canvas-based and 3D works from her exhibition “The elephant in the room” held this past September in Lurf MUSEUM (Shibuya, Tokyo). The book also contains photographs from her past exhibitions as well as snapshots taken by Yamase herself. With comments from Ari Ookubo, Maki Ishii, Kunichi Nomura, and Chiaki Noji, people who know Yamase hugely well, this artbook is a wonderful insight that tracks the course of her career.
