Rina Murao is a Japanese sculptor whose works capture space, reflecting her personal and cultural identity. For years she has made work by fabricating steel sheets into multiple units to form a structural configuration. Walking around the work, the viewer encounters aspects of the sculpture sequentially, finding an intended viewpoint. The way she creates sculpture to lead the viewer to engage her work is clearly influenced by the spatial orders of Japanese gardens.

In the Flex Space of CICA, two large sculptures inspired by seaweed farming will be placed on the dark glossy floor of the gallery space. Murao is fascinated by seaweed farming in the way it creates order in the boundless sea. The title of the show “We Weave Seaweed on a Sea Wave” suggests her interest in the structure of sound in language. It also subtly suggests the finding of a ‘tangent point’ between the two cultures, Japan and Korea, where they both harvest seaweed in the sea. This exhibition is Murao’s first exposer in Korea and is realized with the support of The Nitto Foundation, Japan.
