Serenely Proliferating: Kaori Ukaji

November 19, 2017 - December 20, 2017
Kahilu Exhibits presents a solo show by internationally recognized artist, Kaori Ukaji, from October 26 – December 20, 2017. There will be an opening reception and artist’s walk-through on Thursday, October 26 from 5-7pm. A no host bar and light pupu will be offered during the reception. Work on display will be Ukajiʻs multimedia installation, Serenely Proliferating, which spans both galleries at the Kahilu Theatre. Japan-born artist Kaori Ukaji, first came to Hawai‘i in 1994 while on a trip around the world. “At the time I was exhibiting in Japan,” says Ukaji. “One day I decided to pack up and take a yearlong vacation. I went everywhere from Hong Kong to Australia. Then, when I arrived in Hawai‘i, somehow I felt as if I had come home.” Ukaji is an installation artist who creates immersive environments with simple materials. She frequently chooses a singular color, idea and medium, which for many years has been graphite on paper. For the past three years, she has been drawn to the color red, and has focused her work around ideas about her physical body, and the sensuality and possibilities of womanhood. Her most recent installation, Serenely Proliferating, is completely incarnadine and white. Incarnadine is bright crimson, or a pinkish red, and it saturates the works in the show, which are made of tissue, cloth, skin and thread.
