Student Collaboration in St Louis, MO
Takashi Horisaki (b. 1974 Tokyo, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) creates casts of architectural facades and found objects in order to trace the evolution of urban landscapes. His Front Room exhibition continues the Social Dress series, which the artist initiated at Washington University in 2004 (he received an MFA in 2005). Assuming the role of community organizer, Horisaki will conduct public workshops prior to the exhibition in which participants will cast personally significant objects in liquid latex. By exhibiting the resulting casts in the Front Room, Horisaki’s project encourages dialogue about the meaning of materiality, place, and identity in the city of St. Louis.
This exhibition is curated by Los Caminos, an apartment gallery located in St. Louis’s Cherokee Street neighborhood.
