Mari Ishikawa

From April 30th to May 29th 2022, Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h presents its latest exhibition entitled Contemplation, bringing together the works of seven Japanese artists. The selection offers a glimpse into a world where aesthetic and conceptual research is both powerful and refined.

After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich from 1994 to 2000, Mari Ishikawa made this Bavarian city her home. With (Un)Locked, a series of red keys inspired by the current situation, she invites to see hope in our everyday life. Borrowed Scenery, a collection of pendants and brooches, expresses a borrowed scenery (Shakkei en japonais) both through the material, here kimonos, and the act of wearing it. Her works, which are as much tactile as they are spiritual, invite us to discover the multiple sensations they evoke and awaken in us.
